Rex wants to sit next to you and lick peanut butter from his Kong.
For this 6½-year-old pittie-type dog, life can’t get better than that.
Rex, whose goal is to spend time with you, is awaiting adoption at the Santa Maria Animal Center.
Rex came to the shelter in late December with signs of neglect. Until then, he lived outside all his life, and his feet were badly swollen, cracked and bleeding. His skin and eyes were irritated.
Since coming to the shelter, Rex received treatment and is feeling great.
He dreams of a relaxed, low/medium energy children with no small children. He also is looking for an owner to take care of his medical needs, which include medication for his skin and a daily soak for his feet.
You can schedule a meet and greet with Rex at the animal center, 548 W. Foster Road, Santa Maria. Call 805-934-6119, ext. 6. The shelter is part of Santa Barbara County Animal Services.
