This just in from Marti Ryan at the county's animal services department:
He's so snuggly that he's named after a fabric softener.
Downey the hound is just a pup - barely a year old - and was found stray in East Tampa outside of Ybor City. Like all teenagers, Downey just needs a little direction. He gives hugs and will make a great family dog.
Meet him during the Pets for Vets event on Monday, November 12th. Kids can even send their animal drawings to soldiers overseas. Adopt Downey the hound pup (ID1490863) fully neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and licensed from Hillsborough County Animal Services.
