Our spunky Pet of the Week is Kyro!

Kyro was brought to the shelter when his owner couldn’t give Kyro the attention he deserves. He’s a sweet boy about a year-and-a-half old with some training and a playful, happy streak you’ll fall in love with! This guy turns heads – his own seems too big for his body! We’re not really sure what heritage Kyro has, but we know he’s that perfect size for apartment living. He’d love a chance to find an owner who will throw him toys, take him for walks, and, most importantly, give him a lap to sit on. Kyro would be great with kids, and may do well with another animal friend, but a meet-and-greet would be required.

Can you give this handsome, goofy pup the loving forever home he needs?
