This handsome fella is SEYMORE - he is our Thursday Pet of the Week and he is available for adoption at It Takes a Village in Evansville

SEYMORE is an Australian Shepherd mix. He is just about a year old and weighs about 35 pounds. SEYMORE has been socialized with a small dog, but he has not yet been around kids. He had a tendency to chase after cats.

Pet of the week - Seymore

Our friends at ITV tell us that when SEYMORE sees rescue staff now, he is quick to push those ears back and beg for pets. He enjoys cuddles, particularly if allowed to sleep in bed with his person. SEYMORE has amazing potential to be someone's devoted friend.

All of the animals at ITV are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and FIV/FeLV-tested.

If our pet of the week isn’t the right fit for your home, please visit It Takes a Village to see the other rescues that need to get fostered and adopted. And don't forget about their RENT A DOG Program. A quick fill form and copy of your photo ID will allow you time out with one of ITV's vetted shelter dogs. These day dates are great for the rescues - it gets them some exercise and new information to help us get them adopted. It’s been a big hit- so don’t miss out!
