Meet Our Pets of the Month

Dan came to us from a situation that was not the best. When he came to us, he was scarred up and super thin. In no time, he left his past behind! That includes his slim figure! Dan is now an extra large pit bull as well! He knows that he's living the good life here at the Humane Society of Calvert County. He gets to go on daily walks with volunteers, he takes occasional trips to the beach (admittedly, we do fear that with his new figure, he may be mistaken as a seal on these beach trips), he gets plenty of love as he is a staff favorite and we can't help but to give him just a little bit more attention than the other dogs and he gets quite a few treats!!! The treats may have contributed to his extra large size! We know that Dan should go on a diet, but we just can't bring ourselves to deny him the extra comforts that he didn't have before. Speaking of those comforts, Dan has been known to hoard toys, which are one of his new found loves. every morning, he picks a toy out of the toy bin. He does this with such care and is sure to pick just the right one, and he keeps it with him in his outdoor play yard. His outdoor area is easy to spot as it is the one with an obscene amount of toys in it! As happy as Dan is here at the Humane Society of Calvert County, we know that he would be extra happy in a forever home! Find Out More...
