Lionel Scooby Kerr


Lionel Scooby Kerr pet of the week

Lionel is part dog, part cat, part pig, part cow and 100% a weirdo.

He’s sometimes called “BatDog” because of his ears, and “MooMan” because he sounds like he is mooing when he whines. He arches his back up like a kitty and snorts when he eats like a pig.

He loves attention, going on car rides and sleeping with his head on the pillow – rather, stealing our pillows as we sleep. He often lays like a frog or on his back and kicks the air.

He’s a big cuddle-bug and super sensitive. He makes everyone he encounters smile and once you start petting him, you better not stop.

Everyone needs a Lionel in their life!

💌 We’re huge pet lovers at The Assist and want to feature a pet each week — fill out this form for your fur baby to be featured!
