Dog of the Week – Pancho – AZHS
You need to meet Pancho – he is SOOOO ready for his forever home. He was surrendered to the Arizona Humane Society because of the owner’s dispute with his landlord.
Here’s the whole story!!!
It was a hectic and emotional day in AHS’ admissions department, as is often the case, when a seven-year-old Akita mix wandered in with his previous owner. A landlord/tenant dispute over the four-legged cuddle bug ended in a trip to the Arizona Humane Society and soon Panco and his owner were saying their heart wrenching goodbyes. Despite the confusion, Pancho displayed a happy-go-lucky personality, a wagging curly tail, and a wrinkled brow… which was where the problem began.
Panco’s eye wrinkles prohibited him from seeing clearly and living life to the fullest. Committed to giving him the great life that he deserved, veterinarians in AHS’ Second Chance Animal Hospital™ began scheduling the much-needed and long overdue eye surgery. For Pancho, the entropion surgery, or eye surgery, was more than just a “face-lift” and soon he was exploring the world with his eyes wide open. Thousands of dollars later with stitches along his eyelids, Pancho was “Nipped and tucked” and spent the few days recovering in the trauma center and now he’s finally ready for adoption. He is housetrained via dog door and walks perfectly on a leash. He’s a loyal dog who will sit beside you or lie at your feet while you watch the sun set, read a good book or watch a movie. He will follow you from room to room and will never leave your side. Whether he’s joining you for a car ride, a casual strolls or simply lounging around the house, Pancho promises to be your forever friend.
He is available at the Arizona Humane Society’s Sunnyslope Campus and his adoption fee is $50. This fee includes his neuter surgery and vaccines. For more information call 602-997-7585 x2045 and ask for animal ID number A478425.
