Pets of the Week September 3, 2012

Persian prince Dapper Dan delights in demonstrating all the reasons his breed has been our country’s most popular for years; his affectionate ways are as deep as his face is flat, and he’ll quickly show you the meaning of pure friendship. Dapper Dan’s just 4 years old; his owner had serious health problems and now he’s here, sporting a “lion cut” and looking for all the world like a young gentleman wearing a gray felt suit and white spats. Dan knows he’s handsome but he’s more concerned with you, and is quick to offer a devoted purr, a warm, solid snuggle and seriously pleasing companionship. His placid disposition makes him a great choice for kids and he’s fine with other cats; he keeps a fine box and enjoys going outside, as long as he knows your lap is waiting. Come hear the sound of a Persian plucking your heartstrings; Dapper Dan’s ready to show you forever happiness.

She’s the spunky little girl who thinks big, and if you’re like her handler at our Petco event, you’ll be smitten and smiling before you can say her name, “Joanna.” This 3-year-old Chihuahua/Terrier mix is packed with more entertainment value than all the rest of us put together — her leadership style’s simply “do what I say,” but her canine friends are so adoring they’re happy to comply. Joanna’s owner gave her up because of money troubles, but Joanna’s self-image hasn’t suffered; she’s loving, humorous and full of merrymaking — brighter than a new penny and eager to show you how quickly she can learn, a perfect pick for kids who need a harmless but mischievous playmate or a single who deserves a cuter than cute sidekick. Meeting her is its own reward; come see how boring your life’s been ’til now, and how much life, fun and friendship can be contained in a little dog named Joanna.
