P. Casso

P. Casso is a male mixed breed.

Distinguishing Characteristics

A surgical scar from where the bullet was removed from my leg.  I will wag my tail when you say my name or talk to me, but when you begin to pet me I will stop wagging and just enjoy the petting.  But if you stop, I will definitely start wagging again.

Do you have any canine housemates?

Yes, D. Vinci is my sister.

How did you join your family?

I was found on the street in St. Louis and picked up by Illinois Birddog Rescue to a foster family in Skokie.

Do you have any “jobs”? Tell us about them and what you like most about them.

Canine Therapy Corp at Haymarket Center.  I also give back to US Veterans by letting them tell me about their experiences at war. I'm a good listener.

Do you have any “hobbies”?


Do you do any tricks? What is your favorite?

I can bow and crawl. I know how to go over jumps and through tunnels.

What is your favorite toy?

A plush pink octopus.

What is your favorite treat?

I’m not super into food, but I do like pepperoni. I’d rather tug than anything.

What do you like to do when your parents aren’t home?

Forage through the refrigerator and cabinets.

Is there anything you would like to tell us about your work with Safe Humane Chicago or anything else?

I love meeting the kids in the schools. They like to pet me a lot and I love to be touched.
