New Bedford Pup Is Certified Cuddler & In Need of a Best Friend [WET NOSE WEDNESDAY]
Happy Wet Nose Wednesday! Let's get another beautiful pet adopted.
There are hundreds of animals on the SouthCoast looking for forever homes, and thanks to the help of local shelters, we get to share their stories.
While the shelter provides comfort for these animals, it shouldn't be the only home they know, and each week, we aim to find the perfect home for these loving pets.
This week, we head to Lighthouse Animal Shelter in New Bedford where a young pup is hoping to meet a new best friend.
Meet Eric, an 11-month-old terrier mix with lots of love and energy.
"Eric is a shy guy with new people but is making a lot of progress with volunteers, especially those that he sees every day," the shelter said.
Eric loves to play outside and is known for his expert cuddling skills. He wiggles his entire body with excitement whenever someone plays with him and he isn't afraid to wrestle with the big dogs.
"Eric needs to live in a home that already has another dog in the home for him to be pals with," the shelter said. "His dog sibling should be a confident, playful dog so Eric can learn how to be confident, too."
With a little patience, Eric will be a loving, playful and caring pup that will bring joy to your home.
Eric cannot wait to play with you.
