Meet our March Pet of the Month Truman! Truman hails from Rockport, Maine where he lives with his parents John and Lori who are avid Key West visitors.
Truman was born in a Key West Shelter in May 2008. In August of that same year, Lori was visiting the animal shelter and was actually asked to foster Truman for a week due to an approaching hurricane. She agreed and told John it's only for a week! Luckily the storm never came and Truman was adopted.
Truman is a very happy dog, very at ease with himself around other humans and pets. He is also called the Disney dog or even Benji.
Truman travels back to Key West every February for a month. He loves the smells of Old Town and all the dogs he meets on his frequent walks. Truman has a lot of favorite places to visit and he remembers them every year! Michael's and the Fleming Street Gallery are just a few of the places he marches into because he knows there are treats waiting. Truman enjoys riding around town in the basket of Lori's bicycle and he is happy as a clam!
While at Ambrosia, Truman enjoyed watching all of the friendly dogs parade around the courtyard from his poolside room.
Per Truman's request a donation will be made to the Florida Keys SPCA.
