Say hello to Petey!
Petey is an almost 12 year old wire haired fox terrier.  He was found as a stray. He used to sleep under a city bus in a lot and a good samaritan worked on rescuing him for weeks. Petey was a little hesitant because in the past some humans weren’t so nice to him.   However, his rescuer was very kind and helped him.

Petey then came to Bobbi and the Strays in Aug of ’08.  He has a tough exterior but once you get to know him he’s described as “sweet”, “loyal”, “a comedian”, “a baby” and a “King”!  Petey has a true terrier personally (a little stubborn), so he needs to have an experienced owner with no small children. He loves to run in the yard and play with toys. He is good with most other dogs. His best friend at the shelter is a 70 lb pit bull named Bentley.  Petey loves car rides and doesn’t mind getting a bath (which the staff has to give him more than they like because he rolls around in the grass and dirt a lot).  This little guy will come with free training from one of the trainers at the shelter to help him and his new family get properly acquainted and to make sure they are set up for a happy life together.

If you’d like to meet Petey, please visit our Freeport location, 2 Rider Place, Freeport.

Petey is neutered, microchipped, heart worm free, and up to date on all vaccines.

Thank you for your interest in Petey!
