Age: 1 year old
Sex: Male
Color: White/grey coat

About Bo Jangles:
Bo Jangles is a recent arrival from Texas via our Dixie Dog program.  He’s one year old and is considered a great pet for kids 13 and up (but if your kids are younger, bring them to Dakin to meet him, it could be a match made in heaven!).  Bo Jangles has lived with cats and because of his easygoing nature, he’d be an ideal first dog for his new family.  He has a moderate-to-high energy level and would do well in a fairly active household.  This little charmer loves aerobic and leisurely walks, couch warming, snuggling, hiking, jogging, fetching and playing.  He’d love to start the new year with a new companion!  Come meet Bo Jangles at our Springfield location.

“Happy Neuter Year” Campaign in January
Thanks to a special grant from PetSmart Charities, Dakin will be able to provide $20 spay/neuter surgeries to male cats and dogs in the month of January!  Neutering male pets keeps them safer and healthier, and eliminates some bad habits including roaming, fighting and marking territory.   Your pet needs to be 8-10 weeks old to qualify for this special limited offer.  Call 413.781.4019 to book your appointment as soon as possible!

The Pawscars & Red Carpet Fashion Parade – Dakin’s annual fundraiser is a one-of-a-kind event taking place February 28 at the MassMutual Center in Springfield. The Pawscars will be a night that blends a fashion show (starring local celebrities modeling evening wear and accompanied by rescue dogs) with some affectionate spoofing of Hollywood and the Oscars. We’ll show videos submitted by the public of their pets reenacting iconic moments from cinematic history. Tickets are $125 for the dinner and entertainment, $50 for entertainment only and make GREAT holiday gifts! For more info, visit our website at!
