This stud is BOONE, and he is our Thursday Fursday Pet of the Week with It Takes a Village.

BOONE is a 3-year-old mixed breed who weighs in around 55 pounds. He is full of personality - he is treat motivated and LOVES to play with tennis balls. Our friends at It Takes a Village tell us BOONE recently had a day date with one of their kennel techs. BOONE had a blast and was a total gentleman. Like all of the animals at ITV, BOONE just wants to be loved, and with those eyes and floppy ears, how could you say no?

BOONE really needs to be the only animal in the home - and ITV says this is the only reason he hasn't been snatched up already. If you're looking for a companion who will be loyal and be your best buddy, you need to submit an adoption application now. BOONE's adoption fee is $175.

And as always, if BOONE 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. Keep in mind that It Takes a Village is still in need of fosters for mommas and litters. It's puppy season at ITV.

It Takes a Village

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

ITV is open during regular hours. However, they have received so much support and interest over shut down, that they are still working diligently to review all correspondences. They appreciate everyone’s patience as they find the best matches for their rescues.
