He was recently owner surrendered to pet search due to concerns with a 7 month old baby and Kimba’s sized and energy level. Kimba is housebroken, crate trained and good with other dogs if introduced properly. He is still under assessment regarding cats. He would be an awesome companion for a family with children over the age of 8. Kimba loves to run in a fenced yard, but would also do well if walked several times a day.

Sweet Bella recently came to Pet Search as an owner surrender. She is an 12 week old Rottweiler/Pit mix. Bella is a powerhouse of a pup who is very active, loves to play with toys, play in the snow and when she’s tired loves to snuggle. This girl is super smart but strong willed, she needs a family who will continue her training. Bella is working on her potty skills, she sleeps in a crate at night, she has mastered sit and is working on giving paw. She also loves to play with the other pup in the foster home so she is hoping for a sibling. Because of her energy level we feel she would do best in a home with older children(over 8).

Bonded Pair Senior Males
Malcom and Bentley
Owner has passed away and family is looking for a a special family for these bonded boys.
“Malcom and Bentley are a bonded pair and have been together since Bentley was adopted as a puppy at 7 weeks old. They must be kept together. I have known them since she brought them home; both are social dogs and good with people, kids and other dogs. Both are trained house dogs, are full of energy and need a fenced yard and space to run and/or regular walks. As much as it will break my heart to let these boys go, I have a very demanding job, travel frequently and do not have a large fenced yard that they are accustomed to. I am hoping to find someone who can give them regular attention who has a large yard for them to run or will be active with them and who hopefully wouldn’t mind keeping in touch with me. They have been raised as part of the family.
Bentley is a 10 yr old black lab. I believe he is over 100 lbs of muscle; though he thinks he is a lap dog. He is very friendly and still has lots of energy to play and run. For the past 7-8 yrs he has had a large fenced yard to run in and I don’t believe he has walked on a leash much so he could use some leash manners but he does respond to basic commands (Come, heal, sit, etc). He does like to chase wild animals so I would not let him (or Malcom) run freely outside an enclosure just for their safety. I know my sister used to take him to the dog park when she was able to. He eats twice a day and usually gobbles down all his food when given. He does like to beg but will usually listen if you tell him to go lay down. I have not noticed him being a jumper. He is a big baby and likes lots of attention. Bently is currently on some maintenance meds/supplements (arthritis, allergies, joint health). Since he has been with me I have noticed his allergies (some itching and a hot spot on his front leg) but I would never have known he has arthritis.
Malcom is a 12 yr old Chesapeake Bay Retiever mix, guessing roughly 60 pounds. I know he passed therapy dog training and my sister used to take him to Verland to visit the residents there when she worked there years ago. I am trying to locate his certificate. He is very docile and affectionate. He does like to bark when he hears the doorbell or sees someone walking down the street. He has much better leash manners than Bentley. Malcom has had allergies off and on but I have not noticed him having any issues since he has been with me. He does have a lipoma (benign fatty tumor) on his shoulder (visible in some of the pics) but does not seem to cause him any pain or other issues. He is in good health.
Both have beds, collars, leashes, bowls, toys, etc which can go with them.”

Lola came out of a hoarding situation, where she was one of over 15+ dogs that had never had any veterinary care. Lola is a 6 year old chihuahua/Jack Russell/beagle mix. She is learning to trust people and so she is going to need a special person or family that will give her time to open up and be the sweet girl we are beginning to see. Lola was hit by a car and received no care for the broken back leg she sustained in the accident. She has a limp and we will be asking medical advice when she is spayed this week. Applications are available at petsearchpa.org
He is handsome, flirty, playful, smart, entertaining…. he is a Playboy!
Meet Playboy, an 8 year old terrier mix who arrived in April from the beautiful island of St Thomas, USVI. Playboy was originally a stray on the island, was adopted from the Humane Society of St Thomas and then returned when his owner left island. Playboy was in a foster home on the island that had other pets.
Why was Playboy not adopted in St Thomas? Playboy is deaf, but knows some hand signals; he was heartworm positive (he has completed all his treatment and is negative). We had him flown here to give him the chance for a great family… a chance he probably would not get on the island because of his age, his handicap and heartworm.
You will fall in love with this boy when you meet him… his forever home was not in paradise but we know it is somewhere in western PA.

Please share his story and photo…he has been with us 10 months!
This handsome, happy ☺️ boy is MOOSE….He came into a shelter in central Florida in February with two other dogs. This poor boy had lived his entire life outside, weighed down by very heavy chains. His owners did not have much and Moose went without food on several occasions, surviving the best he could off of the table scraps they brought him. Moose had a hard life and needs to learn how to simply “be a dog.” He needs to learn some manners and appropriate reactions; we’ve been working with him and he’s been doing great with us. He is high energy and can get over stimulated at times. He needs time and patience (and understanding) and someone committed to working with him and providing positive training. Because of his high energy, we recommend a home with children over the age of 10 and at this time be an only pet.
He is young, only 3-years-old, 52 pounds, and neutered. He is heartworm positive and has started his treatment, will is covered by Pet Search.
Pet Search was able to rescue this sweetheart with the help of United Paws Rescue and Pilots and Paws days before he was scheduled of euthanization … his life matters and he deserves a chance for a better life.

No one ever called to claim him….
Reuben was found as a stray two weeks ago in the Taylorstown area of Washington County. Social media posts, ads in newspapers, calls to animal control and state dog warden brought no owner forward. He was wearing and old plastic collar with no identification and was not microchipped.
Reuben is a 4 year old Black and Tan Coonhound. He is housebroken, crate trained, knows commands, gets his own leash when he wants to go for walks. He loves people and attention. Reuben would be a wonderful family pet. Because of his breed, he has a higher prey drive and has shown that he would not be a good pet with a family that has cats. Reuben has been fully vaccinated, microchipped and is scheduled to be neutered. Applications are available at petsearchpa.org
“Hi… my name is a Scarlett and I am a 6 year old pit terrier mix. I’ve been living with my foster family about 6 months now; ever since this crazy ‘virus’ has been around.
They tell me I am basically a quiet dog that loves people. I am not a good ‘watchdog’; I just let anyone walk right in.
I am an only pet as my foster parents have no other pets and they tend to spoil me. I can not tolerate cats and I have been told that I am allergic to them. I also have a few food allergies that my new owner will need to be aware of.
I do walk well on a leash until I spy a cat or other small animals that I would like to chase.
I need a strong ‘male’ presence in my life that will correct me on walks when I try to go after small prey. I love car rides and prefer the front seat. Because of my super strength, children over the age of 10 would be best.
I might do well with another dog my size, which is 60 pounds, but wound definitely need a meet and greet to see if we would be compatible.
I’d like to find my forever family soon… applications are available at petsearchpa.org
