Shamu is happy to keep company with cats, dogs and kids. He has been vaccinated.

From Shamu's current caretaker:

Covered in hundreds of fleas and ticks and filled with parasites, these poor sibling pups were not feeling too well when they arrived. But after getting the medication they needed and some lovin’ in their foster home, these hounds mixes are now healthy and happy and ready to go to their furever homes! They will race to you and cover you in puppy kisses; they will play tug o’war with each other all day long; they’ll romp around with their foster pals. They truly are always a fun time.

Notes from Zito's caretakers:

This silly pup loves to romp around all day with his siblings! When they aren’t tackling each other and chasing their tails around, they are off exploring. With their tiny noses to the ground and their ears flopping in the wind, these puppies will run around and journey through each and every room and don’t even get them started on the backyard! They love to clumsily chase after each other and run around in the grass until they finally crash for a nice nap.
