Puppy Pals - Action Packed Dog Stunt Show

Puppy Pals Where: South Midway
When: Shows Daily
Web: Puppy Pals Dog Stunt Show

Wesley Williams has loved animals from a very young age! His mom even says he wanted to purchase a full-on petting zoo at just five years old. It was always something new she proclaimed. One month all he wanted was a potbelly pig, the next month a miniature pony, the next month a flock of chickens, you name the animal, and Wesley wanted it. Although he has always had a passion for working with animals, Wesley pursued his unique unicycle skills at an early age, but always kept that dream of working with furry friends in the back of his mind. Just two years into forming his livelong goal of an animal act Wesley has burst onto the scene with his "Puppy Pals," an all-new comedic stunt dog show!
