Pets of the Week December 30, 2013

You just found the “happy” in your Happy New Year — year and a half year young Shepherd/Hound mix Gabby will make you LOL when she gallops around the yard, but she’s thrilled to be close to you, too. She’ll come full throttle when you call her, stop just in time to keep from jumping on you, “sit” on command and enjoy a nice rope-toy tug-of-war — then lean against you warmly. Gentle Gabby was found stray, complete with her own highly civilized and playful approach to friendship; we picture her as an inside/outside pet with an active family who’ll spend time loving and training her. Come see the medium-sized beauty who’ll bring out the inner puppy in you; Gabby will make every day a holiday in your home.

She carries the signature white tip on her tail like a friendship torch, making the rest of her ultra-plush body seem even blacker. But then our 2-year-old girl “Georgia” knows a thing or two about style, and she’s willing to share her secrets. Georgia was found stray and brought to us, full of purring social confidence and her own attentive way of making you feel special; hold her like a baby and she’ll relax in your arms, so affectionate you don’t know who’s snuggling who. Georgia’s OK with other cats and fully devoted to you; her gentle demeanor makes her a magnificent choice for children, who’ll delight in her ermine-soft companionship. Go see this lovely young cat at Petsmart whose charm extends to the very tip of her tail, then take her home and watch her magic begin.

The Greenwood Humane Society is a not-for-profit organization committed to the compassionate care and protection of animals.

Their purpose is to give sanctuary to abandoned, abused, and neglected animals, provide education to the public on responsible and humane pet ownership, encourage the public to spay and neuter their pets by providing low cost surgery, and encourage adoptions of those animals placed in their care.

Their adoption center is open Monday through Saturday 10:00am to 5:00pm est.
