Pets of the Week April 2, 2012


She rolls on her back submissively and smiles her heavenly smile when you rub her chest, showing you the flip side of her American Staffordshire image — tender, vulnerable, and as love-seeking as a young child. But then Rosary is indeed just a 2-year-old herself; a beautiful, healthy brindle and white young girl found stray, and a perfect candidate for adoption as a gentle, wholesome family dog. Rosary’s dream of paradise includes kids to play with and parents to bond with, she’ll stay by your side forever and a day, a divine companion with an eternal tail wag. She’s semi-housetrained already and good on a leash, her eagerness to please makes her a pleasure to train. Cats are fine with Rosary; please test her with your dog — wanting all your attention is her only flaw. If you value everlasting loyalty and infinite friendship, Rosary will give you her heart and soul — and all her smiling happiness, too.


“Buff” describes her delightfully soft orange color — but also the way she rubs her tiny cheek against yours to polish your cares away. Six-month-old Nym is smart, petite, playful and attentive, a charming stray from Ninety-Six, complete with her own white eyeliner, who likes other cats and thinks humans are fun and fascinating. Come see how special you feel when pretty Nym takes her very own shine to you.

Pets of the Week March 26, 2012


He’s graceful, athletic, affectionate and intelligent — and he’s keen on bird-watching, too — but when you’re an elegant young Pointer mix like Toby, all that’s in your blood. Handsome 2 ½ year old Toby was found wandering with his sister, whose Pointer look’s just as picture-perfect as his, and he has manners to match his fine heritage. He loves a rollicking play session but he’s too polite to jump on you or your kids, and his congenial personality beams just as warmly from his blue eye as his brown. Toby’s housetraining’s in progress, he gets along fine with other dogs, and his ultra-short tan and white coat’s as easy-care as it comes. Come let Toby show you what good breeding’s all about —he’ll hunt down your heart with his smile and become your family’s forever-loyal champion.


Splish-splash — is he taking a bath? — or is our beautiful young fur-cloud Grady playing in his water again? Either way, when he turns his head upside down and gives your hand a fervent rub, this one-year-old’s the most flirtatious cat you’ll meet, and except for the soft gray cap on his head, the whitest and fluffiest too. Grady was turned in by his owner; now he’s ready to make up for lost time by wrapping you in his luscious purr and showing you how delightfully affectionate a ravishing cat-boy can be. Grady’s manners are as appealing as the rest of him — he gets along fine with dogs and other cats, and would make a gentle, relaxed companion for your kids. He may dabble in his water, but he respects your heart and all it holds. Come drink in his attention, check out his freshly-washed paws, and feel just how much love charming Grady has to give.

Pets of the Week March 19, 2012


He’s a small Terrier mix who lives big, as well-formed from head to toe as a bantam weight wrestler, and if you dare underestimate his 11.4 lbs. he’ll put a hold on your heart before you know it. Three-year-old Bing is a stray with every social skill —he’s polite, outgoing and interested, great with kids and cats, and downright adoring of other dogs; he loves to walk on a leash and is making good progress on his house-training. (Don’t bother to stop his tail from wagging, it’s impossible.) Bing’s handsome brown and white coat is a snap to care for, and if you look deep into his eyes you’re sure to see true-blue. Come see a takedown in the making — smiling Bing will pin you for the forever friend you are, and show you exactly how fun a 182-ounce sidekick can be.


She’s every bit as fiery as her name — and just as impossible to ignore — but our Wasabi’s so full of savory fun you’ll never get enough of her. “Playtime” is all the time in Wasabi’s book, with a little left over for snuggling and talking. At 4 months old she’s the cutest Spice Girl you’ll ever meet, an affectionate fluff-ball of long black hair, with an innocent face that belies her sweet mischief-making, and an excited purr that rocks her little body. Wasabi was found stray in Ninety Six, now she’s ready to devote herself to entertaining you endlessly; kids 10 and up are recommended. Come get a taste of how boredom-banishing a companion cat can be; you’ll adore her instantly, and she’ll prance happily into the play-space of your heart.

Pets of the Week March 12, 2012


Red-nosed Pit Bulls are considered rather rare, but the Humane Society of Greenwood has a gorgeous mix right under your nose! Miss Eve is the perfect dog waiting oh so patiently for her forever home. You can often seen Eve stretched out resting contently in the yard as if she was Cleopatra overlooking her subjects. She is, after all, the Queen of all Things. She will gladly serve as a partner going on an adventurous walk or lie at your feet while you chill and watch TV. She is a beauty with a fire red coat and hazel eyes who will be sure to steal your heart as well as your gaze.


Pet orange tiger “Toaster” and even the expression on his face becomes warm, he fairly glows with pleasure; his green eyes close halfway and radiate bliss, and his mouth turns up in a contented little smile. This clean and handsome 2 year-old friend is feline-quiet affection personified; you’ll bask in his attention when he gives you a tender head butt, and adore him for his “low maintenance” manner, too. You see Toaster was a gentleman stray, and although he’s there when you need him, he would happily be your outside cat — one with lots of petting privileges, of course. Or bring him in and see what he’s been waiting to prove all along — he’s neat as can be — a tidier cat-man you won’t find — or a finer litter box. Warmth and appreciation go together, in Toaster’s view, and he’ll do everything he can to win your praise. He’s fine with other cats — dogs too — and he’s calm and patient with children. Come see Toaster and treat your fingertips to his soft, comforting companionship. He’ll wander silently into your heart, and you’ll want him around for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, too.

Pets of the Week March 5, 2012


Yes, of course she’s housetrained —she’ll sit on command too — but when you’re as wholesome and pleasing as the girl next door, those are minor accomplishments! Our small, beautifully mannered American Staffordshire Lou Anne is gently refined and affectionately civilized; she responds perfectly to your praise, more delicious to her than any treat. Lou Anne, a 6 year old little lady — healthy, cordial and intelligent — and looking lovely in her black and white coat. The kind soul who lost her will never stop missing her. Lou Anne’s delightfully fun with kids and great with other dogs and cats too; her niceness is as real as it is trustworthy. Come meet this smiling champion of the heart; she’ll make your family joyfully complete, and bring her carefully polished “company” manners, too.


He’s a gentleman so replete with Southern hospitality he comes with second helpings of himself — and 3rd and 4ths, too! Our gentle orange Big Boy’s so large he’s like the Louisiana Purchase, a vast territory of friendship, massively loving and infinitely delightful, ready to annex himself to that special person who values the beauty of a companion who’s waistline-challenged. At 7 years old Big Boy’s health is just fine, thank you, he eats special food to maintain his present figure; he was turned in by his owner and is looking for a home with grownups who’ll pet to him to hear his capacious purr; cats, big kids and mannerly dogs are fine too. Hold him in your lap and admire his pleasing girth and his clean, carefully groomed coat, then put him down and watch him drag his pillow around and hide under it like he’s a turtle with a shell. Big Boy’s just entertaining himself; he’s not shy at all, and he’s much cozier than a turtle. Come enjoy a buffet of friendship named Big Boy; you won’t find a more sincere sidekick anywhere, or more immeasurable fun.
