Our SPCA of Hancock County Pet of the Week is a great dog who has a few special needs, but really, don't we all.

Hermes is a very sweet guy with an amazing platinum-colored coat, and when folks come to the shelter who are looking to adopt a dog, his irresistible amber eyes say "Please, pick me! I'm worth it!"

We'd have to agree. Just look at those eyes looking up at you in the photo above.  This guy deserves a special home right away and here's why.

Our boy has medical issues making him a higher maintenance companion. A surgically corrected medical condition leaves him dribbling and splashing when urinating. He will get “urine scalding” if he is not cleaned with baby wipes after he urinates.

Hermes also gets thyroid medication twice daily, an antidepressant for separation anxiety, and prescription food for his sensitive skin.

But once again, everyone and everything deserves a good home, don't they?

The many "pluses" are that Hermes loves people, toys, and car rides. He also loves cats or other dogs as well.

A stay-at-home mom or dad would be just the ticket for Hermes. This would eliminate his need for anxiety medicine. Hermes is a staff favorite and the folks there at the SPCA of Hancock County would love to tell you so much more about him!

Make an appointment to meet Hermes soon, as we feel that he would make a terrific best friend.

The SPCA of Hancock County serves EllsworthMount Desert Island and beyond, and is still operating by appointment only for the safety of the animals, as well as visitors and staff. If you are looking to adopt, please check their website where they have an adoption application and the available animals listed. For general inquiries, please call them at 207-667-8088, email info@spcahancockcounty.org, or send them a Facebook message. The shelter is located on Route 3 in Trenton.
