Pet of the Day - Mickey

Posted: Updated:

#684829 - 3 Years Old – Shepherd Mix – Male

Meet Mickey, a sensitive soul longing for a second chance with a new best friend.  Found as a stray near some busy Tucson crossroads, Mickey was brought to the Humane Society hungry, cold, scared and confused.  It has taken a while for this hesitant boy to come out of his shell, but he’s making beautiful progress.  Over the past few weeks, Mickey has discovered the joys of earning treats for his impeccable manners and getting accustomed to new situations in unfamiliar environments.  Thanks to his friends in Canine College, Mickey is putting his trust in people and learning the ins and outs of walking on a leash.  Once painfully shy, Mickey no longer needs coaxing to go out for walks and, instead focuses his attention on the fulltime job of making new friends!  As an independent boy, Mickey will always appreciate his personal space, but looks forward to a day when he can roll over for a tummy rub with a relaxed smile.  If you could give Mickey the patient, experienced, quiet and loving home he needs, please consider showing Mickey what human companionship is all about so that he can thrive.  He really is a sweet and easygoing boy just looking for a place to belong!
