Pets of the Week July 8, 2013

He’s called “Clyde,” a name for a polished young black and white American Staffordshire mix prince; at one year old he’s full grown, compact at just 45 lbs., and so vibrantly athletic he seems to have his own built in steed. Clyde was adored by the kids at Camp Good Dog, he never outruns his own patience and he’s proud to learn too; he’ll screech to a halt to give a gentle kiss and a wag, sit for a treat, retrieve a tennis ball, walk beautifully with a harness, and kennel himself cooperatively when asked. (Clyde loves both you and treats — he’s a joy to train, and he enjoys other dogs, too.) Clyde was found stray but he’s already proven his flawless family dog status, we picture him in a home as lively and affectionate as he is, with kindergarten-aged kids and up, or simply a single person who’ll dedicate as much lifelong loyalty as Clyde himself. See how it feels to hug 45 lbs. of happiness, and how brightly a one-year-old prince named Clyde can shine.

He’s a declawed and neutered mystery man — big, strong and civilized, and he wears a black mask, too; but 2-year-old “Batman” isn’t busy fighting villains, he’s simply waiting for his new family to come along and take him back to the life he must surely have been accustomed to. Handsome Batman was turned in as a stray; he’s laid back, gets along easily with cats, seems fine with dogs, and is intelligently sociable with people. He’s more a conversationalist than a snuggler, but he enjoys keeping you close by, where he can defend you from wrongdoers, and that pesky boredom, too. Batman keeps his airy coat scrupulously clean and his space bat-cave tidy; and he’ll give you a warm double wink to show his sense of well-being when you pet him. If your home’s short a superhero Batman here’s to fill the bill; see how fun it is to play sidekick to very own gentleman avenger, and love him as if he never belonged to anyone but you.
