Pet of the Week

Target the Dog

Meet Target, a socially challenged 8-month-old, neutered Australian shepherd-retriever mix.  We have been slowly working on exposing him to new people, things and places, which are scary and overwhelming for him.  Target is making friends and getting more comfortable with changes, but he will likely never be the dog that you take with you everywhere.  Target needs a family with dog experience, no children under 12 years and a home with a fenced yard.  Target is available to meet by appointment only.  If you think you may have what Target is looking for in a home and want to discuss him further with staff, submit an online application.  Visit for more information about Target and all the other animals waiting for homes at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter, 4 Paws Lane in Gloucester.
