Oh, what a sweetie. He looks like such a lovely dog, especially by what is mentioned about him. It kills me when these animals are 'disposed of'. Would a couple get rid of a child because they have to work? In my animal loving world, it's no different for me. Pets are family, not a commodity. Okay, will get off my soapbox now.
URGENT-FL-Tavares-8 Month Old Male Basenji/Whippet Mix-In Shelter
This boy is a red & white cutie with long legs! He is in the Lake County Animal Services Shelter. It does not state how much he weighs. He is listed as not being housetrained but it is probably because he was found as a stray and the shelter cannot guarantee that he is.
Tavares is approximately 35 miles NE of Orlando.
Here is what the shelter states about him:
