This week's Pet of the Week is an extra special dog named Trapper!

Trapper was originally caught as a loose feral dog with a terrible case of mange nearly two years ago. He's doing great now, both health-wise and interacting with people, but is STILL looking for a home!

Trapper is a medium sized brown dog who is loving, playful, and very much in need of a home!  He’s currently living in a foster home, where he plays in the fenced yard with the other dogs and goes for walks around the neighborhood. He’s well behaved during the day when the human members of the household are at work.

Trapper is shy at first with new people, and needs a few meetings to become comfortable. Trapper is looking for an adults-only home with no cats.

Find out a whole lot more about Trapper and also see a video of him at the SPCA's 4-Paw Post!
