Pets of the Week May 27, 2013

Hoops isn’t named after the slang term for basketball, but instead for half of the beloved Hallmark duo “Hoops & YoYo.” She was found stray and it’s assumed she’s the product an American Staffordshire Terrier and large bunny rabbit. Full of curious energy, Hoops loves toys, people — especially children — but not cats. She is one focused puppy during her daily training. When queued to sit, she bypasses that “middle part” and drops to the floor to lie down. If you are looking to bring an active and loving dog into your family, visit Hoops at the Animal Shelter today!

Like most introverts, Nora enjoys time alone. She’s fine with other cats, but because she’s naturally independent, she leaves socializing to them. From her cat bed she observes the antics and habits of her feline roommates and probably rolls her eyes at them now and again. Nora has an “only child” personality and wants total autonomy of the decision-making, at least when it concerns her. Play time, rest time, and cuddle time are all subject to her scheduling and desire. Because of her quiet and sensitive personality, she is most comfortable around adults and would be happiest in a low activity home where she can spend her days in quiet self-reflection … and napping.
