MAPS Pet of the Week: Doc

Marshfield Area Pet Shelter Pet of the Week

Submitted by a Marshfield Area Pet Shelter Volunteer

My name is Doc and I love people! I am 6 years old but that does not stop me from playing my favorite game of “tag” with people. I would love to have a running partner to help me stretch my legs. When I first came to the shelter I was really worried and I began a nervous habit of licking my front legs (like people who chew their finger nails) which created small sores.

However, I am now adjusting to life here at the shelter and the wonderful volunteers who keep me company and my lick sores are healing really well! I also may be big in stature but really I am a lap dog. Whether we are running and playing outside or lounging inside watching TV, I am happy as long as I’m by your side. I would love to have a home for the summer so I can run and play out in the beautiful weather with my new family!
