Pet of the Week: Gosha the dog


CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – In this edition of Pet of the Week, we were introduced to Gosha, a 9-year-old Australian Cattle Dog. Lee Chambers, Manager of Marketing and Communication at Dakin Humane Society, told us all about Gosha and about other events going on at Dakin.


Gosha is looking for a new person (or family) and a new home after being with one caretaker her whole life. This 9 year old is a purebred Australian Cattle Dog and will be a terrific walking partner for you. She doesn’t mix so well with other dogs or cats, so she’ll want to be your one and only pet. She’ll make it worth your while by rewarding you with her sweetness and loyalty. Gosha is housetrained and would do well with someone who has a little bit of experience with dogs. Come meet her at Dakin’s Springfield Adoption & Education Center.
