Swayze needs a home

Swayze is a 2-year-old neutered golden retriever and border collie mix.

"Hello, my name is Swayze! If you are looking for a great guy who loves life look no further!

"I am a very energetic guy who will need continued obedience training when I come home with you. I was adopted from the shelter and returned for having too much energy.

"I would be the best jogging/hiking partner around.

"I do like other dogs but am just learning how to play with them so I have a ways to go when meeting all kinds of new dogs. If you are consistent and patient with me I am sure to turn out to be the perfect dog, will you give me a chance?"

He is available for adoption at the Allen County SPCA, 4914 Hanna St.

The shelter is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.

For more information, call 744-0454 then choose from the following:

  • Extension 200 if you found a stray cat or dog, lost your pet or wish to surrender your pet.
  • Extension 202 to adopt or speak with an animal care specialist.
  • Extension 205 to volunteer or donate pet food or supplies.
The shelter will close at 3 p.m. this Saturday to prepare for its annual fundraiser, CatWalk.
