This month's Pet of the Month is Diego the dog.Diego, the Boxer and American Staffordshire Terrier mix, is two years old with a red nose and beautiful blue eyes. He has a great personality and loves to run around and play. Although Diego can be frisky and excitable when in play-mode, he's more comfortable in his crate when the family isn't home.

Check him out here:

Diego prefers a home without small children, but is house trained, neutered, and up-to-date with all his shots. You can come visit Diego at the Forever Paws Animal Shelter, or check out his full profile with video on their website. With an adoption, Diego will get one free visit to Hidden Brook Veterinary Services in Dartmouth and a free 3 month supply of Frontline.

We can also happily report that last month's Pet of the Month, Rosie the Puggle, is scheduled to go to her new home this Saturday! Let's keep giving these loving animals a home.

UPDATE: As of Tuesday, Oct. 21, we're pleased to announce that Diego has found his new forever home. Thanks to his new pet parent for adopting him!
