Cute, energetic Pebbles is 8 years old and ready to adopt from Orange County Animal Services



Meet Pebbles (A465678)!

Pebbles is 8 years old. She has been returned from adoption several times for being overprotective of family members. She can be territorial with other animals, and plays rough with other dogs. Pebbles, as you may have gathered, is in need of an experienced handler. She is extremely sweet with people but will require slow introductions to new dogs in the home. She would do best in a home with no young children. Pebbles has a lot of energy for her age, so she will need someone who can get all her energy out and love on her as we do at the shelter.

During the month of June, adoption fees are reduced to just $10 for all ready-to-go dogs and cats. Those are pets that have already been spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

Orange County Animal Services is located at 2769 Conroy Road in Orlando, near the Mall at Millenia. The shelter is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday. For more information, please call 407-836-3111 or visit
