PRISM is not quite two years old, weighs just under 20 pounds, and has a personality that is as colorful as his name. Our friends at ITV tell us that PRISM is a social butterfly who gets along well with people of all ages and with other dogs too. PRISM loves toys and playtime, especially if water is involved, making him the perfect partner at the beach or lake.

All of the animals at ITV are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and FIV/FeLV-tested.

If our pet of the week isn’t the right fit for your home, please visit It Takes a Village to see the other rescues that need to get fostered and adopted. And don't forget about their RENT A DOG Program. A quick fill form and copy of your photo ID will allow you time out with one of ITV's vetted shelter dogs. These day dates are great for the rescues - it gets them some exercise and new information to help us get them adopted. It’s been a big hit- so don’t miss out!
