Pets of the Week August 25, 2014

His name — “Eugene” — is from the Greek word for “well born”; this 4-year-old, 47 lb. American Staffordshire Terrier mix boy lives up to his distinguished moniker, and more. Eugene was found stray, we don’t know where he learned to love so completely and so gently. Call him and he comes at a gallop, then screeches to a halt and sits loyally at your felt, face smiling, tail wagging, ready to exchange fervent kisses. (He doesn’t jump on you). Eugene adores a leash walk and is a favorite with volunteers; he thinks people, including little ones are delightful; he can already sit for a treat and he’s working on his house training. (He excelled as Adoption office dog and we picture him living inside.) Eugene’s been treated for heart worm and should now need only preventive care, he doesn’t like to share his food, and gives cats a definite “maybe.” Come meet the calm companion with the aristocratic manners; Eugene’s already neutered and ready to join your well born family today.

Her purr’s as golden as her gleaming mustache — 4-month-young Torti-cat Otter’s as rich a friend as you’ll find, from her silky ebony and orange coat to her slow double-wink eyes, to the peaceful way she rests her head on your shoulder and hums with contentment. Unlike many her age, Otter’s gentle enough for even young children, she’s outgoing and playful, but wise and careful, too, and her tidy box and nice manners make her popular with other cats. She’s still so little we ask that you keep her inside a few more months, the better to enjoy her lavish affection. Come meet the young girl who’ll double your heart’s wealth in an instant, a treasure named Otter is waiting.
