Pets of the Week July 16, 2012

Her name’s the Italian word for “beautiful” and lap-sized Chihuahua mix Bella lives up to it and more; one look and you’ll see that her face is exquisitely sensitive, and unlike many of her breed, she’s as calm as a cameo. Her owner gave her up because of financial troubles, but 2-year-old Bella’s rich in social graces; she loves everyone, from little kids on up, and she adores the company of other canines. Playtime’s fun time for Bella, she’ll race with the big dogs, then happily run back to you for the ecstasy of your arms. Bella’s heartworm positive but it is very treatable, and she’s working on her housetraining; you’ll see her eagerness to learn written clearly in her eyes the first time you meet her. Don’t wait to take Bella into your life; she’ll show you how low-maintenance a great love can be, and how easily her gentle-strong affection translates into your family’s dream.

Her temperament’s as spotless as the rest of her is spotted; for our declawed Calico Tabby Aubrey is sweetness personified, and her magnificent tiger coat’s covered with beautiful reddish-brown markings, in and between her fine stripes. Some might even call this lovely 2 year old “shy,” but her loving nature’s so pure it beams your way easily, transported by her soft purr and tender head butts. Aubrey’s owner moved and left her with us, now she wants to be your inside cat, and she’s prepared to show you how clean and congenial a young girl can be. Aubrey’s gets along fine with other pets, and her gentle nature makes her an impeccable choice for kids; trust her to demonstrate what loving kindness is all about, and how fun nice manners are, too — especially woven into a warmly affectionate friendship. Come hold Aubrey’s gracious beauty in your arms, then take her home and enjoy her steadfast heart forever.
