Washington is Save-A-Pet’s pet of the week for July 4, 2024

Washington is Save-A-Pet's pet of the week for July 4, 2024.

GRAYSLAKE – Washington says, “When I first come out for my walk, it almost looks like I’m hip-hopping because I’m so happy. I have just the perfect amount of energy so you don’t have to run five miles with me every day, but a couple of long walks would be perfect. I’m also known to plop myself down just so we can relax and get some loving. Turn on the music and let’s dance back home.”

Washington is about 4 years old, neutered, up to date on shots (including rabies), tested negative for heartworm and on preventive and microchipped.
