My Pet Pal: Bandit
I’m Bandit. I was named after “Smokey and the Bandit” because “I’m gonna do what they say can’t be done!” My mom calls me the wonder dog because I almost didn’t make it in this life. My first family didn’t vaccinate me and I got parvovirus. I almost died, and they abandoned me at the vet. But I am a strong little guy, even if I weigh only 7 pounds. I spent three months at the vet. But I got better and I found my forever family. Now I live on a farm in Groton. I love chasing the cats (Mama doesn’t like that so much) and going on adventures to local dog parks and hiking trails. But snuggling with my mom under a blanket is my absolute favorite thing.
