Adoption Spotlight



If you’re looking for a snuggly teddy bear then Galileo is the dog for you. This handsome guy looks forward to his time outside for a game of fetch as well as enjoying a long walk accompanied by his favorite toys. He is an intelligent and treat motivated dog, so you won’t see him turn down a treat stuffed Kong, especially when he gets to show off his “sit”, “paw”, “down”, and “place” commands. Galileo would bloom in a home as the only furbaby with older kids who will allow his spirited personality to flourish. You can adopt Galileo for a fee you name through Sunday, April 4th. (Brandywine Valley SPCA, 600 South Street, New Castle, DE 302-516-1000, ).
