This week we met Pumpkin the dog...

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

"Pumpkin is looking for that very special person who will give him his second chance. He just recently arrived at the Humane Society of Ocean City from another shelter and is still being evaluated. He is a Maltese mix, about 4-years old.

He has some skin issues which are being diagnosed. We aren't sure yet if it will be a one-time medication or if it is a more chronic issue requiring a longer course of treatment. Pumpkin is a very happy and friendly dog that would do best in a home with no young kids or cats. He may be ok with another dog. "
