Pet of the Week: Gilbert [PHOTOS]

All of us at I-92 WLWI love our pets, and know so many loving dogs and cats at the Humane Society of Elmore County would love to have their forever home with a loving family. That’s why we’re stepping up to create awareness with the Pet of the Week campaign.

Here’s our latest Pet of the Week! The shelter shares, “Gilbert is a two-year-old male Pit mix, 65 lbs, high energy but also a huge love bug!  He came to us last August with a horribly imbedded collar and heartworm positive.  With the help of a local Veterinarian, he fully recovered and makes us laugh every day with his antics.  Gilbert is a giant lap dog, sits for treats, lives for a belly rub, loves to be brushed and loved on. He loves rope toys, chasing a ball (but not bringing it back) and is even happy getting a bath! He is an active boy that deserves a better remainder of his life than whatever his previous life was.  He is great with female dogs (no male dog partners please) and cats!”
