Pet of the Week: Highway

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Highway, an adult male pointer available for adoption locally.

Here is what his friends at Safe Haven Puppy Rescue have to say about him:

There are many words to describe Highway — but FABULOUS is at the top of the list.

Highway has his name because he roamed the interstate for FOUR months before being caught. This is a mystery because he is the sweetest, friendliest guy you could ever imagine and LOVES people. He does not have a mean bone in his beautiful body, and will make you smile every day.

Highway loves to play… he loves toys and will catch a tennis ball out of mid air and bring it back to be thrown again. He knows some of his basic commands like sit and stay and is house-trained.

He loves other dogs, but mainly wants to be someone’s very best friend… and will jump right into your lap for extra love, if you let him. If not, he’s happy to curl up next to you, beside you, or nearby on his dog bed. He will sit by your desk quietly and wait for his turn for attention.

If you want a dog who truly will bond strongly, and will absolutely worship the ground you walk on, this is it.

Are you and Highway a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.
