Pet Corner: Fuzz Lightyear

Come meet Fuzz at our Springfield Adoption & Education Center.

Name: Fuzz Lightyear
Breed: Maltese mix
Age: 8 years old
Gender: Male
Color: White


Charming Fuzz Lightyear can’t wait to find a new home.  He came to Dakin a few weeks ago when his person moved but couldn’t bring him along.  This lovable boy is a good walking buddy who would be an ideal first dog for someone who’s never had a dog before.  Fuzz will break you in gently!

He is OK with other dogs on a case-by-case basis, so if you have a dog already, bring him to Dakin to meet Fuzz first to see how they’ll get along.  We don’t know his history regarding cats, but we can check that if you have a cat at home.  Being a bit of a senior fellow, he’s got a slower pace, so save a space on the couch for endless cuddles!

Come meet Fuzz at our Springfield Adoption & Education Center.
