Pet of the Week – Reese

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

HARTFORD -- Reese is a chocolate Lab/Pittie mix. She is a spayed female about 6-years-old.

Reese was found roaming in New Haven and was never claimed, which is shocking, because she is such a good dog. It is hard to believe someone wasn’t looking for her!

She is active and very spry for her age. She loves a good walk, but doesn’t need to be jogged to be exhausted.

She gets along great with most other dogs, though probably not a playmate.

She has a calm, friendly energy, and is simply an easy-going girl who wants to make friends!

She’s happy to greet people, but doesn’t get over-excited and jumpy, but remains polite and calm.

She’d make a great first-dog for someone, because she is basically bad-behavior-free. She seems basically trained already, so for a first-timer, she’s “out of the box” as we like to say.

She is gentle, and would do well in a home with kids 6 or older.
