Pet Scene: Summit County’s adoptable pets for the week of May 30

Tonto is a neutered male Akita mix weighing about 93 pounds. He is a very active and affectionate boy who is ready for any adventure and would be a great hiking partner. He tends to jump a bit and can get a little rowdy, but he is just trying to say hello and doesn’t realize how big he is.
