Our pet of the week is an energetic Hound Pit mix who needs a home.

Buka is 5 years old. Shelter workers say he is a very smart, fit and loving boy with lots of spunk. he knows basic commands and is great with other dogs.

If you are a runner he would be the perfect companion to help you stay in shape because he loves to exercise.

Buka is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. He would do best in a home without small children.
