We have a brand new Pet of the Week from the Suncoast Animal League with a unique name, and well, one heckuva tongue. Annette from the Suncoast Animal Leagues introduces us to Flea…

Fleas are annoying little creatures, aren’t they? Well THIS Flea could not be annoying, even she tried! You want cute, energetic, playful, spunky, curious and loving? You do? Week then Flea is ready to go home with you!

Flea is a 5-month-old female terrier mix who simply LOVES life! She’s been in one of our fabulous foster homes for a couple of weeks and her foster mom GUSHED about her! She said, “One of her most favorite things to do is play fetch and she (almost) always brings the toy back.”

Flea’s foster mom told us a little about her energy level and joyful personality. She said, “Once she’s up in the morning she takes only short naps, so short sometimes I miss it, and then she’s back at it full throttle! She obviously doesn’t want to miss a moment of this new fun life or an opportunity to play with, engage you, and get her share of belly rubs, back scratches and love.”

Flea has been good with the two small dogs in her foster home, but not the kitties. She loves kids and would do well as a jogging partner. You’d better like looooooong walks if you want Flea to be your forever pup because she insists on them! Her foster mom told us, “She is definitely NOT the dog for someone looking for a fellow lazy couch buddy.”

Flea has been spayed, microchipped and is up-to-date with vaccines. She is almost housebroken and is already crate trained. She will be at the PetSmart in Countryside this Saturday so stop by if she sounds like the puppy for you!
