The Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week is Blaze, a six
year old male Pit Bull Terrier, who was rescued by Smithtown Animal Control
Officers when a call came in from the County that a dog was abandoned, left in
a cage at Blydenburgh Park. Thanks to the dedication of our Dog Trainer and the
devoted staff, Blaze has learned to trust and love humans
Blaze enjoys running around in our dog park, eating treats, and
playing in the pool with his toys! Blaze has bonded with some of our staff at
the shelter whom he's grown to trust. He knows some commands: sit, wait, give
paw, and walks nicely on a leash.
Blaze needs an adult only
home, without other pets, and one familiar with big breed dogs. His ideal
family will spend time reinforcing his training with reward incentives,
understanding that he has been through a rough road and those days are forever
in the past.
If you are interested in meeting Blaze, please call ahead to
schedule an hour to properly interact with him in a domestic setting, which
includes our Meet and Greet Room, the dog runs and our Dog Walk trail.
Thinking About Adoption:
The Smithtown Animal Shelter’s primary concern is finding the
perfect home for each animal that finds his/her way to us. The Animal Control
Officers at the Smithtown Animal Shelter will go out of their way to ensure
both the rescued and rescuer are made for one another. If you have other pets,
you can arrange to bring your four-legged family member into the shelter, or we
can set up an at home meet & greet to see how your prospective new addition
does with other family members, pets, or the household itself.
