Ed. note: Pet of the Week is provided to Somerville Patch by the Animal Rescue League of Boston. You may have missed the column over the past couple of months. That's because the Animal Rescue League was incredibly busy handling animal adoptions, and it was also a little understaffed, so it took a brief hiatus from this column. We look forward to seeing more pets in the upcoming weeks.
Wiley is a handsome and very sweet two-year-old neutered male American bulldog mix who was brought to the Animal Rescue League due to landlord restrictions. He is such a happy boy with a smile on his face all the time! He is a playful guy who loves to play fetch with his toys, go on long walks with his humans, and just run around having fun. Ideally, he’d love a fenced in yard to play safely in.
Wiley is very people friendly and gets along with other dogs after a proper introduction. He does not particularly like to share his toys with other dogs, so he may do best as the only dog at home or maybe with a tolerant canine housemate. Although he lived with a cat in his original home, he could sometimes play a little rough so cats may prefer not to live with him.
Wiley is one smart boy. He has been learning a lot about basic training here at the shelter and knows a lot of cues like sit, down, stay, drop and has also been learning how to go into a crate and seems to enjoy it. If you think Wiley is the boy for you, come down to meet him today!
