NEW BERN, N.C. (WNCT) — This featured pet is a pit bull mix that was rescued in Sept. 2022 as a stray. His name is Smiley, and he is currently located at the Craven Pamlico Animal Service Center at 1639 Old Airport Road in New Bern.

Smiley is heartworm-negative. Craven Pamlico can provide neutering services once Smiley is placed with his new family.

“He’s been here for a while … He’s very sweet. He just wants all the love … Not really interested in toys as much as attention,” said shelter manager, Cat.
