Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin

WJVL Pet of the Week

Listen to WJVL on 99.9 FM Monday mornings around 7:30am to hear about WJVL's Pet of the Week! This week's featured pet is Bandit!

Meet Bandit! Due to the unfortunate passing of his owner, Bandit was surrendered to The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin and is now looking for a forever home. At 4-years-old and over 100 lbs, Bandit enjoys the simple things in life. He loves car rides and time spent with his favorite humans. Bandit is one smart dude, knowing sit, down, stay, shake, leave it, and come! He is crate trained and does well when left alone. He has lived with other dogs and done well in the past, but prefers to not share his space with cats. Does Bandit sound like a good fit for your family? If so, call the shelter at 608-752-5622 to schedule your meet and greet!
