Pets of the Week June 10, 2013

He was found in a ditch with a broken leg — a sleek Plott Hound/Boxer lover-boy, a year and a half young and handsomely brindled, with a tender disposition well intact despite his injury. Facebook friends rallied to pay for surgery and now Coolio’s on his way, with a pin in his leg but not his heart, and no limp in sight. Coolio’s as smart as he is personable, is great on a leash, and loves to learn for a treat (sit, shake, and lie down are easy, he’s working on “roll over”). He’s an instant but genuine friend-maker with all living things — kids, grownups, cats and other dogs too; he’s currently the greeter at the Adoption Center, but he’ll gladly romp in the yard with his playgroup, and he loves water too. His only request’s another pet to love when you’re not home, aloneness doesn’t suit his outgoing ways. See how unbreakable lasting companionship can be; Coolio’s here — warm, sound and waiting — and ready to be your dream.

Rosalie’s colors are as mellow as she is — gray, brown and buff all melted in harmony; and there’s a tiny orange kiss on the top of her head — a hint at the ermine-soft affection you’ll feel the moment your fingertips sink into her rich coat. She started as a stray, but at 2 years old Rosalie’s already so ladylike she even wears perfectly-applied white eyeliner, the better to match her immaculate chin. She gets along beautifully with her friends in our big pen, a tidy-box keeper and team player, who’ll give you a soft chirp before settling in for a world-class snuggle. She sinks into your embrace in pure Rosalie-style, filling every millimeter between you with contentment; closeness is the most comforting thing in the world, and she’ll give you all you can hold. See how every color of cat can fuse quietly into one young girl, and how generously she’ll grace your home with her very own signature kinship.
