John Perrault from The Berkshire Humane Society joins Slater and Marjo on Wednesday mornings to talk about the "Pet of the Week".

This week, meet Snorkel!


Hey there! I'm Snorkel, a sweet, lovable, and very excitable Pittie man. I was surrendered to the shelter due to no fault of my own, as my owner's allergies to me were just too much for them.

I am an energetic young man who would love an active home to go out to explore and play, but also come home to snuggle and relax. While I love every human I meet, I would do best with teens 13+ as I don't always know my strength when I get excited.



I am not reactive to other dogs, but once I'm near one, I try to dominate them. Because of this, it would be best if I was the only pet in the household.


If you are interested in meeting me or would like some more information, please call the kennel staff at (413) 447-7878 ext.126 or email me at
