Living In Oakland Park's Adorable Adoptable Pet of the Month: Sweet Pumpkin
Meet sweet Pumpkin! A cuddly and “sweet as pie” terrier mix is available for adoption at Everglades Angels Dog Rescue.
This precious girl was saved from the streets of Miami a few years back, where they used her as a bait dog. Everglades Angels adopted her out to a family who loved her for five years, and then, due to a divorce, we’re unable to keep her.
An Everglade's Angel
This rescue’s motto is once an Everglade’s Angel, always an Everglade’s Angel, and Pumpkin was welcomed back to the rescue for rehoming.
Unfortunately, Pumpkin was devastated by the loss of the only family she had ever known. Still, this forgiving girl is ready to give unconditional love to a new family willing to reciprocate.
Such a Playful Puppy
Some may consider Pumpkin a senior at nine years old, but she still acts like a playful and loving puppy. At about 40 pounds, she gets along well with children and other dogs in the home. She is fully potty trained and comes spayed and fully vaccinated. She walks well on a leash and is very friendly with people she does not know.
Pumpkin is looking for her hero. Someone is willing to give this girl the best years of her life because she still has a lot of love to give and many more adventures to be had.
Pumpkin Looks Forward to Having a Family
