Pets of the Week March 10, 2014

Take a Blue Tick Hound and turn him burnished auburn, add a ringing bay and an equally pure disposition, and you have the formula for our colorful character Frank; a refined 2-year-old Coonhound mix who exemplifies the many traits his breed is adored for. Frank’s intelligent, affectionate, patient and social; he’s good with other dogs, and would make a superlative friend for kids of all sizes or a delightful companion for a single with room to play. At 60 lbs he’s full grown but wouldn’t dream of knocking you over; he’s so cooperative he’ll kennel himself on request, is working on his house training and enjoys a nice squeaky toy. See how well Frank’s glossy coat matches the hue of your heart.

His tiny, tender meow’s a giveaway — despite his strongman size, handsome, long haired Caesar’s as gentle as they come, a dignified 3-year-old in a luxurious gray coat, who’ll conquer your heart in an instant. Meet Caesar and he’ll revel in your attention, offering some sturdy biscuit-making and a soft purr in return; he was shy at first but has evolved beautifully. Caesar would be thrilled to be your inside/outside cat (or outside only, as long as you’re there to pass the time of day and enjoy a warm head-butt); he gets along fine with other felines, and bigger kids who aren’t too boisterous. Meet Caesar and see what a victory a quiet friendship can be.
