This week we met Johnny the dog...

Here's some information on Johnny from the Humane Society of Ocean City...

"Here's Johnny.....
John is a 3 year old mixed breed. He is a lean and leggy dog that loves to run around in the yard. He’s learning what toys are and is starting to retrieve tennis balls. He would love an active home where he has a yard to play in and long walks.

He wouldn’t mind another dog in the home with him. Older kids would be fine with him just due to his energy level and running around. We don’t want him to run into a small child.

Adopting a pet as a new family member is a major commitment and responsibility. The Humane Society of Ocean City is there to help you and your family succeed every step of the way. We provide training assistance by one of our certified dog instructors and quality veterinarian services by our award winning clinic."
