Pet of the Week – Syd

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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 - Syd is around 6 or 7 years old. His breed is a complete mystery and he looks like a mini-Akita, or maybe a Pomeranian mix.

In any case, he’s unique and very cute.

Syd was on the run for two weeks, and the animal control officers couldn’t catch him. Scared and lost, and hungry, after a while, he started to reach out to people, and ended up jumping right into the animal control officer’s van.

He is sweet and gentle, and has medium/low energy and capable of a leisurely walk, but doesn’t need a ton of exercise. He gets along fine with other dogs, but is more people oriented.

Syd is the type of dog that wants to cling to his people like a little shadow. He would be a great starter dog for a home that needs a calm, gentle, experienced dog or for someone who wants a bigger dog, but needs to have something small for size restrictions

He’s on the smaller side, but is not a couch potato like a lap breed.
