Van Halen | Pet of the Week

Van Halen

Van Halen is not only a rock star, but he is a playgroup star at the shelter. This two-year-old pit bull mix plays well with all the dogs and shows the new guys around.

He loves to chase the ball and play tug. He loves to snuggle on a blanket with his human and lean into them. Van goes on regular sleepovers with his shelter buddy where he is doing well inside the home and sleeps on his own bed.

Why don’t you “Jump” over to the shelter and meet Van Halen?
