Pets of the Week July 23, 2012

If patience is a virtue then 3-year-old Cheeto’s a shiny chocolate saint; he recently visited Petco where he disported himself with aplomb; the crowd adored him, and he was just as smitten with them. How this graceful Labrador/American Staffordshire prince turned into a “stray” is a mystery; he welcomes a good romp with his dog playgroup, and his constant wag only gets happier around kids. Cheeto’s naturally too well-mannered to jump on you, he loves a leash and his housetraining shows promise. All he needs is a little time and attention to be perfectly polished; his penchant for pig’s ears and his cooperative spirit will make training him your most fun — and fulfilling — family project yet. Come look into the eyes of utter devotion; Cheeto’s ready to give you every minute of his fine future.

He’s built like a brick litter box, with a muscular physique that lives up to his powerful name — Capone. But this young man’s personality’s as tender as his name is tough; he’d rather snuggle-rub his airy orange fur on you than pick even the smallest fight, and the only place he rides shotgun’s on your shoulder. Handsome Capone was found stray, alone with no one to talk to, and for a warmly social gentleman like him that was a bore. Now he’s here waiting for you, purring along fine with other cats, dogs too — and showing everyone how clean a white chin should be, and how masculine it is to be tidy. Capone’s happy to be your inside/outside cat as long as you’re in kissing distance, the only gang this gangster wants is your family, and the only crime he’ll ever commit is stealing your heart. Come feel the exquisite companionship of a cat-boy named Capone.
