Pets of the Week July 28, 2014

He’s the breed of legendary loyalty made famous by the movie “Hachiko” — 3 year old, 55 lb. Akita mix “Sporty B” embodies the attributes which made his Akita ancestors a national monument in their native Japan. Sporty’s dignified, mannerly, and independent, a courageous guard dog who’s patient with kids and excellent on a leash, and his purpose in life is to form a single-minded bond with his beloved forever family. Sporty listens well and would be a dream to train, he’ll already “sit” for a treat. Akitas are known to be dominant, so Sporty should be your only dog — cats however, are fine. Come meet the most exciting friend you’ll ever find, and enjoy devotion that’s truly a breed apart.

He was trapped when tiny at a lakeside feral colony, but 3-month-young Pierce is quite the opposite of wild; he’s so innately refined he was born in a Tuxedo, and his cheerful, humming purr and snugly face rubs will chase any doubts about his love for humans. (He’ll be shy for a moment, then his lap cat instincts kick in, and he’s as calm and comforting a friend as you’ll find). Pierce is good with other cats, gentle with kids, and gets along happily with well- mannered dogs, too. He could be a fine house feline who’ll never need to dress for dinner, or live inside/outside as long as you’re available for a serious affection-fest, with purrs aplenty and some soft kneading, too. Pierce’s already neutered and ready to go home today, come and be caught by a warm companion in formal wear.
