Rescue Me: Hoss

Meet this week's adoptable pet

It's Christmas time and as anyone who's ever watched "Love Actually" knows, at Christmas you tell the truth. So, believe ACCT Philly when they say Hoss would win an award for "Happiest Dog."

  • Quick Facts
  • Breed: mix
  • Age: 9 years
  • Sex: male
  • Size: 50 pounds
  • Color: dark brindle
  • Spayed/Neutered: yes
  • House-trained: yes

Even though Hoss ended up in the shelter because his owner moved, his spirit hasn't wavered. 

Thanks to his happy-go-lucky attitude he always ends up on Santa's nice list.

This year, Hoss didn't ask for a bone or a squeaky toy or a tennis ball. Instead, all he wants is to spend the holidays with a loving family. 

At 9 years old, he's ready to make a new family smile. He's not worried about fitting in right away, either. Hoss knows basic commands and is house-trained.

Santa thinks Hoss is a very good boy.
