Meet Ray

Meet Ray, or "Mr Ray Ray" as his favorite volunteers call him.  Ray is a handsome 1-year-old Terrior - Pit Bull mix who has won the heart of the staff and volunteers.  In fact, if we told the truth, some of them are quite smitten!  Alas, due to his "Pit Bull" breed, many potential adopters pass him by.  Thus, we are focusing on him for this week's featured dog.  It is time to bring this deserving fellow into the limelight!

Ray was brought to the shelter in October of 2017.  He had been found wandering as a stray in South Williamsport.  We took him into our care and posted him in our lost and found database.  Sadly, no one came to claim Ray.  Confused, overwhelmed, and young, Ray wasn't sure what to think of the sudden switch to being in a shelter.  Then along came dedicated volunteers and staff.  They worked with Ray, taking him for long walks and interacting with him so he could see that humans are ok.  Ray responded with enthusiasm and exuberance.  In fact, the young gentleman is full of energy and would do well to receive further formal obedience training with his new family.  He LOVES toys, so we believe that his active mind will respond well to learning the ins and outs of leash manners, proper meet and greets, and other obedience exercises.

One cold January day, when it was too bitter to walk outside, we treated Ray to nose work, as you can see in the last two pictures of his blog post (http://lycomingspca.org/5-6-featured-pets-of-the-week-ray-panther/).  Ray did very well!  He even found the difficult ones.  We were very proud of Ray.  You can see that he is enjoying the interaction and guidance of our staff, as well as the nose work itself.  Hint hint...a treat or two may have been involved.

We believe that Ray's ideal home will include someone who is experienced with dogs and does not have small children.  An active family will be a great fit, as he loves to walk, run, and play fetch.  Once he gets the basic routine and structure of a home environment down, he will be one fun, goofy guy!

Ray cannot wait to see his new forever home.  He would love to settle down and be loved, knowing that the rest of his days are secure.  His sweet eyes and bounding love will make it all worthwhile.  He is ready and waiting for a meet and greet in Kennel 71.
