Update: Steve Buscemi has a new forever home. But please check out other pets of the week in the future.
Steve Buscemi, the actor, is smart, charismatic and compelling odd but cute looking.
The same can be said for this week's Pet of the Week: Steve Buscemi.
In hopes of finding forever homes for homeless dogs and cats, PhillyVoice is working with Street Tails Animal Rescue, a local shelter, by highlighting an individual pet.
This week, please meet Steve, who prefers not to be alone.
NAME: Steve Buscemi
AGE: About 1 year old
BREED: Pekingese Mix
TEMPERMENT: Likes all humans and other dogs. Cats are an unknown. Not a big fan of being alone.
FUN FACTS/BRIEF BIO: You may recognize Steve Buscemi from some of your favorites movies and television shows such as "The Big Lebowski," "Fargo," and "Boardwalk Empire"… but have you ever imagined him in your favorite place of all: your couch?
That’s right, Steve Buscemi is looking for his next role as your best friend. Steve is a one-year-old Pekingese Mix who likes to take it slow at first but will light up the room once properly introduced. He’s good with other dogs, but won’t share his awards with them.
