Pet of the Week: Punch

Posted at 6:45 AM, Nov 15, 2019

HELENA — There is a unique American breed at the Lewis and Clark Humane Society named Punch.

The 8-year-old corgi terrier mix has been at the shelter for about two weeks after being surrendered by the owner.

Staff say she’s a great all around dog who’s good with other animals and loves children.

Punch might have short legs, but she also has a big heart.

“She’s the sweetest,” said Dog Program Coordinator Rebecca Howard. “She rides beautifully in the car, so if you’re planning on going for a long trip for the Holidays she’ll ride along with you. She’s just an all around terrific dog. Whoever gets this dog is going to be very very lucky. “

The ideal home for Punch would be just about anywhere, as long as there aren’t many stairs.

“Long back dogs over time have a hard time doing stairs, which can contribute to some back pain. If you have ramps, are willing to build ramps or don’t have a lot of stairs in your home she’s going to fit right in.”

Punch is house broken and knows obedience commands.

Those interested in Punch should contact the Humane Society as soon as possible.

Staff have noticed that she is beginning to get depressed and want to find her forever home soon.
