Blitz is the Humane Society of Chittenden County Pet of the Week.

Meet Blitz,  the Humane Society of Chittenden County Pet of the Week.

A unique-looking pup with a fun-loving personality, Blitz’s favorite things include treats, butt scratches, doing zoomies in the grass, and more treats (seriously, this boy loves his snacks!). Blitz is also deaf, but that certainly doesn't stop him from having a great time going for walks or racing around the play yard. We don't know his whole backstory, but we do know that Blitz has been through some transitions in his life and he's now looking for a home where he can get comfortable. He's eager to please and to play, typically greets strangers with a slobbery kiss, and could be a great companion for hiking or jogging.

Blitz may prefer to be the only dog in his home, but has done well on group walks with other dogs around. And after a nice walk, he's likely to sprawl out for a nap right by your side (or maybe on your lap!). Since he can't hear people approaching, he can sometimes be startled by sudden, fast movements. This, combined with his exuberant personality, may make him a better fit for a home with older children and adults.
