Adoptable dog Burke loves belly rubs and he's waiting to meet you at Orange County Animal Services



Meet Burke!

Burke (A442849) is a 3-year-old neutered male and he has been patiently waiting for his forever family to come into our shelter and adopt him. He is easily leashed, energetic and playful when he goes outside, and seeks out belly rubs or pats on the head often. Burke has not had any issues with other dogs in the shelter, and he is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and ready to go home the same day he is adopted. If you would like to meet Burke, links to make an appointment to visit the shelter are below:
