Personality: Calm, peaceful, and cuddly (softest coat you’ll ever touch), obedient, social (yet loves his independent quiet time), quirky, and treasures car rides (even around the block), meeting new people and other animals.

Why he was brought to rescue: Dumped at a South Jersey shelter by someone who has dumped other dogs before. Petey’s teeth and health were neglected to the point that he refused to eat due to pain. He arrived in foster extremely thin and fragile after spending a month in a noisy, cold municipal shelter. Now, he’s flourishing!
