Pets of the Week August 4, 2014

His calm, unfailing diplomacy goes way beyond normal puppy skills, but 5- month- old Hound/American Pit Bull mix Malcolm is anything but ordinary. Hold him in your arms and he’s a snuggly, buff -colored baby; put him down and he’s a quiet, gentle, trustworthy companion to kids. Malcolm’s temperament’s so adored by other dogs he’s in two play groups; our big dogs love him especially — maybe that’s because he’ll grow from his present 25 lbs. to a 50-60 lb. big boy himself; his heart already seems vast. Malcolm’s smart, impressionable and imminently trainable; he already knows not to jump on you, simply because he’s naturally polite. Come meet the handsome little boy with the fun kisses and refined ways, and marvel at the magic of Malcolm.

Why she needs Prozac is a mystery — what beautiful 2-year-old tiger girl, with lovely orange and creamy white markings interspersed in her stripes, who’s social, attentive, affectionate, and talkative has reason to need an antidepressant? But Angelica’s behavior was unpredictable without her meds (she played a wee bit too hard and on occasion would bite) and the vet suggested we give it a try, and now she’s a Prozac success story if there ever was one. Angelica would like to be your only pet, and in a home with some nice, civilized adults would suit her perfectly. She has no choice but to be on her medicine forever, and will gladly reimburse you for the small monthly expense with exuberant head rubs and a plethora of cheerful chirps. Come see how charming a Prozac purr can be, and how forever-happy you and Angelica can feel; she’s already spayed and can go home today.
