Tessa

Pets of the Week September 15, 2014

Tessa
She’s proof that sweet girls can be tons of fun; lovely 6-month-old Shepherd mix “Tessa” is packed with boisterous affection — pick her up and she’ll lean back to kiss you, put her down and she’ll sit and shake for a treat. (Give her a baby pool and she’ll take a flying leap into it. Yes, the lake would be heaven). Tessa was found stray; she’s smart, attentive, social, and radiantly healthy — a cooperative shelter citizen who enjoys other dogs and thrives on attention from humans of all sizes (an active family with school-age kids and a spacious yard would be perfect for her). Tessa would love some training, her potential’s as impressive as her attitude. Come see how becoming boundless energy can be; Tessa wants to hug you today.

Purrsia
Her ethereal beauty makes her look like a page from a cat calendar, but our lavishly long-haired 3-year-old “Purrsia” is real, and so is her abiding affection. She’ll pet your ankles with her pristine gray and white coat forever, a more elegant show of warmth you won’t find. Purrsia was found stray with 2 angora-soft sons; she keeps a tidy box, is an immaculate groomer, and would make an exquisite indoor pet — calm and gentle enough for your young ones. (She gets along fine with other felines but says “no thanks” to dogs.) Come see a cat-vision come to life, and take her home to comfort you and yours.

Bee Bee

Pets of the Week September 8, 2014

Jamie
Brimming with boundless possibilities and positively pouring on the canine charm, Jamie bounces about without a care in the world. As the reigning representative for Miss Popularity, Jamie has too many play dates to fit in her schedule. Playing poolside (kiddie pools in her case) this 7 month old pup steals the show, the toys, and all the kisses she can get! With a sleek coat that ripples with deep caramel colors, and the dark soulful eyes that can rarely be resisted, Jamie is growing into a medium sized beauty; but who wants to grow up without a family to call their own? This lovely lady is a family dog in the making, putting her American pit bull terrier heritage to use as a playmate extraordinaire, and focusing that same unrivaled willingness to learn all the house manners needed to thrive in her new home. Jamie isn’t the stingy type. She is ready to share her fantastic future with a loving lifelong family.

Bee Bee
Excellence is the name of the game, and Bee Bee is an A+ student all around. Top of her class in home economics, her pen could make the front page of Southern Home, and her litterbox habits reflect her neat and tidy nature. Voted Class Representative by her feline pen mates, Bee Bee is the first to prance up to greet visitors and politely reach her paw out to tap your shoulder and encourage everyone to make new friends. It only takes a few pets for her to show you why she is the leader of the Glee Club, with a purr that just can’t be contained in her small frame. Bee Bee styles her school clothes with a classic flair wearing a short white coat, black accents, and bright yellow jewels for eyes. Now this over achiever has her eyes on graduation! She is wishing and hoping for a family to show off all her spotless report cards to. A new home is the purrfect place to use all the skills she has worked so hard on, and Bee Bee has no plans to stop at that. She will fill it with love and excel at her new position as family pet.

Arian

Pets of the Week September 1, 2014

Arian
Look up “Boxer breed” online and you’ll see 8 year old Arian’s face — and a more perfect example of Boxer attributes you’ll be hard-pressed to find. Arian was found stray, a lustrous, compact brindle and white lady, complete with impeccable manners (she refuses to potty in her pen) and the intelligent, cooperative, and child-loving nature that makes these dogs one of the most popular breeds in the U.S according to the AKC. Arian’s a joyful example of calm companionship, she’ll give you an exuberant happy dance, but certainly won’t jump on you — nor does she box. She’s great with other dogs, enjoys a leash and will kennel herself on request. Come see the stuff legendary family dogs are made of, Arian’s here, and she’s ready to be your dream.

Mama
She’s soft as a bunny and as cuddlesome as they come — 2 year old Mama scores a 10 on the snuggle-meter; how her tender black and white body can contain all her warmth and affection is a wonder, and so is the comfort you’ll feel when she settles in your lap and purrs for an eternity. Gentle Mama enjoys other cats, keeps a tidy box, and would be an excellent choice for your young ones, she’d love to join your family as your inside cat with outside privileges. Come meet the 4-legged caress named Mama, then take her home to be your everyday pleasure.

Eugene

Pets of the Week August 25, 2014

Eugene
His name — “Eugene” — is from the Greek word for “well born”; this 4-year-old, 47 lb. American Staffordshire Terrier mix boy lives up to his distinguished moniker, and more. Eugene was found stray, we don’t know where he learned to love so completely and so gently. Call him and he comes at a gallop, then screeches to a halt and sits loyally at your felt, face smiling, tail wagging, ready to exchange fervent kisses. (He doesn’t jump on you). Eugene adores a leash walk and is a favorite with volunteers; he thinks people, including little ones are delightful; he can already sit for a treat and he’s working on his house training. (He excelled as Adoption office dog and we picture him living inside.) Eugene’s been treated for heart worm and should now need only preventive care, he doesn’t like to share his food, and gives cats a definite “maybe.” Come meet the calm companion with the aristocratic manners; Eugene’s already neutered and ready to join your well born family today.

Otter
Her purr’s as golden as her gleaming mustache — 4-month-young Torti-cat Otter’s as rich a friend as you’ll find, from her silky ebony and orange coat to her slow double-wink eyes, to the peaceful way she rests her head on your shoulder and hums with contentment. Unlike many her age, Otter’s gentle enough for even young children, she’s outgoing and playful, but wise and careful, too, and her tidy box and nice manners make her popular with other cats. She’s still so little we ask that you keep her inside a few more months, the better to enjoy her lavish affection. Come meet the young girl who’ll double your heart’s wealth in an instant, a treasure named Otter is waiting.

Baby

Pets of the Week August 18, 2014

Riley
His name’s Riley but he never gets riled — this 2- year-old American Pit Bull Terrier mix’s temperament is as calm as his delicate pink smile; he’s so pleasant we’ve never even seen him potty in his pen. Handsome Riley was found stray, a 55 lb. white and brindle gent with a naturally affectionate, laid-back style; he loves a nice head scratch, gets along fine with other dogs, thinks a pull toy’s a blast, is good on a leash, and can already sit for a treat. (Riley’s food motivated and would respond well to training.) Riley’s destined to be a fine family dog; we suggest bigger kids because of his size, and a nice yard to run in, too. Come see how composed a young boy can be, and how easy it is to love an easygoing friend named Riley.

Baby
She’s spun from a cloud of tri-color fur; at 4 years and only 5 lbs., little Baby’s airy coat is bigger than she is, but the quiet personality underneath is as warm her soft terra cotta shading. Baby’s elegance is mostly unspoken (she’ll chatter vivaciously for food and treats.) Beyond that she’s content to rub her exquisite face on you, do velvety figure eights at your ankles, and generally remind you that she’s the most glamorous and dependable friend you’ve ever had. Baby’s fine with dogs but will take her time with other cats, mostly because she doesn’t see herself as one; and she prefers to live inside, where it’s easier to stay lovely. Baby’s already spayed and ready to go home with you today, come hold this weightless wonder in your hands and heart.
