Pets of the Week January 11, 2016

This Redbone Coonhound mix is even-tempered, amiable, and kindly, but a tiger on the trail. Sure-footed and swift, Dixie keeps her nose to the ground sniffing out whatever she can find to fulfill her innate need for wanderlust. She needs a large fenced yard to keep her close to home and to provide her ample room for exercise and play. Her adopter needs to be a firm, but calm, confident, consistent leader to help her stay mentally focused. Dixie loves people and would make a great indoor and outdoor companion for someone who enjoys regular outdoor exercise and will be sure to take her along. In a home setting, she is affectionate and wants to please; however, Dixie and cats do not mix. Like any true Hound, Dixie loves to hunt cats or any other non-canine pets. But with other dogs, she’s a peach! Meet this strikingly attractive, laid back girl and you’ll wonder why she waited so long to come into your life.

A fuzzy, wuzzy, crazy kitten is Flint. At four-months-old he’s learning to flex his superboy powers of play. And play is what he does all day, and that could be due to his recent introduction to catnip — medicinal, of course. He plays with toys, people, blankets, lint, the air — anything really. And loving? This guy is already a master of amore, that’s Italian for “love.” And his affection of choice is smooching, that’s English for “kiss.” Yes, Flint knows his gorgeous blue gray coat gives him a leg up because when he’s not smooching others, he’s being cuddled by volunteers and staff. Flint’s the man, alright. How can you resist this comical charmer?

Adoption fees waived for the pets of the week through Saturday!
