Pet of the Week: Schooner

Updated 3 months ago

Stacey Coventry from the Bangor Humane Society was in the studio Tuesday, introducing Wayne to this week’s Pet of the Week: Schooner.

Schooner is a five year-old male hound mix that has already been neutered and is ready to be picked up today for an adoption fee of $100. Schooner is a bit of a selfish pup, so although he loves socializing with other dogs outside of the house, Stacey recommended a home in which he will be the only dog living there. She also does not rule out houses with cats or children, but says to use caution, and perhaps bring the entire family if you plan to come in to meet Schooner.
