Pets of the Week April 30, 2012

He’s a pure Chocolate Lab mix who loves water right down to his webbed feet — so much so that he sang when we turned on the hose, and earned his name “Radio.” But that’s just the first of this strikingly handsome 2-year-old’s bountiful assets; Radio loves to sit, shake and fetch on command, yes he’s already housetrained, and you and your kids will laugh with delight when he deftly catches a tennis ball in mid-air, as many times as you want to throw it. Radio jumped the fence at his previous home and now he’s here, the most popular, trainable and cooperative boy on the block; he gets along fine with other dogs, thinks walking on a leash is a blast, and is ready to roll his resplendent retriever heritage right into your home, where he’ll shower you with playful affection and lavishly innocent friendship. Come see what a chocolate Prince looks like, and let your heart listen to Radio’s joyous forever-song.

The Maine Coon is the second most popular cat breed in the US, and when you meet our magnificent Higgins and you’ll know the reasons why. He lives in a cloud of airy fur, but his intent is crystal clear — to intrigue you with every breed characteristic at his command, then help you revel in the pleasure of your friendship. Two year old Higgins was turned in by his owner with several other cats, and he displays his Maine Coon ways with panache — he’s outgoing, attentive and talkative, with a decidedly gentle disposition, keen intelligence you can see in his sensitive face, and the stately, flowing coat his ancestors have made famous. True to his heritage, he’s relaxed with other pets, full of affection for you and is destined to make a loyal, playful companion for your kids. But for all his exemplary traits, Higgins’ exquisite heart is his very own to give; and if you’re ready to return his passionately civilized kind of love, he’d like to become your Maine man. Come see.
