Every Wednesday at 8:30 we are joined by John Perrault, Executive Director of the Berkshire Humane Society to discuss all the happenings at their Parker Road facility, as well as talk about their pet of the week.
The pet of the week is Violet, a six-month-old boxer mix that was abandoned by its previous owner. The staff at Berkshire Humane says she’s a bit like Violet, shy at first, but will come out of her shell once she gets to know you. Previous owners didn’t spend much time training her, so she’s still working on house training and basic commands.
Violet is good at walking on a leash and as a small dog with a lot of energy to go on adventures. She also loves to cuddle and will be fine in a home with kids ages 7 and up or with other dogs, however, not yet tested.
If you are interested in interviewing Violet, please contact the Berkshire Humane Society’s kennel at 413-447-7878, extension 127.
