Pets of the Week July 2, 2012

He’ll fetch and return a hundred times, and if his furrowed brow looks worried it’s only because he’s afraid you’ll ask him to share his squeaky toy — it’s the only thing this 7-month-old Jack Russell/Shar-pei mix won’t give; his boyish heart and playful devotion are yours for the asking. Arnie’s the darling of the play yard — he loves kids, other dogs and running right into your arms when you call his name. Arnie’s almost grown and on the small side of medium, a handsomely-built, highly-trainable bundle of affection who can proudly “sit” on command. He’s good on a leash and is working on his house training; all he needs is your time and attention. If you’re ready to meet the prize of a lifetime, Arnie and his squeaky toy are ready too; come see how quickly he can fetch his jubilant young heart to yours.

Paint an orange-golden portrait of an inside cat and the image of our regal young Leon will emerge — clean, quiet, attentive and warmly affectionate — and also declawed; he’ll happily make your home his graceful kingdom, but this handsome tabby prince must rule from your lap, not your yard. Two-year-old Leon’s owner moved and gave him to us, now he’s ready to show you how seriously social he is; companionship is his calling and hobnobbing his imperative, he head-butts his respect and face-rubs his love, there’s usually no need for a plain old “meow,” unless it’s breakfast time, when he takes a break from his non-verbal friendship to roll on his back and chat you up, his own very special expression of gratitude. Leon’s so tidy he could star in a cat box commercial, but he doesn’t keep company with dogs, and we suggest no small children. Come see how soft his strong regard for you can be; Leon can’t wait to turn his earnestly handsome face to yours and lock eyes forever, then show you just where to sink your fingers into his airy, immaculate coat. Leon’s already neutered and ready to go home with you today, don’t wait.

The Greenwood Humane Society is a not-for-profit organization committed to the compassionate care and protection of animals.

Their purpose is to give sanctuary to abandoned, abused, and neglected animals, provide education to the public on responsible and humane pet ownership, encourage the public to spay and neuter their pets by providing low cost surgery, and encourage adoptions of those animals placed in their care.

Their adoption center is open Monday through Saturday 10:00am to 5:00pm est.
