Pets of the Week March 31, 2014

Good manners make great fun, and our year-and-a-half-young Boxer mix Betty is here to politely prove it. Throw her beloved tennis ball and LOL when she races back with it — she’ll sit (quivering with anticipation) until you throw again, and again, and again. Betty’s a gentle, exuberant athlete who knows how to give soft kisses and how NOT to mess in her pen, she appears to be housebroken. True to her breed background she’s destined to be your cherished family dog, a devoted playmate with a medium-sized body just right for hugging, thoroughly smitten with you and yours (she says “no thanks” to other pets.) See Betty have a blast without breaking etiquette, try to fit 2 tennis balls in her mouth and still smile, and fulfill every one of your faithful dog-daughter dreams.

She’s picture-perfect from a distance, an elegantly composed feline clad in long silky white hair with exquisite pastel orange on her face; but zoom in for more than a pet and a soft head butt and gorgeous 4-year-old Ezmerelda may object a little. Ezmerelda was found stray, she looks like a pampered house cat but would enjoy a little space — perhaps as your incredibly stylish barn-or-outside cat. (Of course she’ll always be available for her own Ezmerelda-style glide-by, complete with a contented purr as infinitesimal as her coat is sumptuous.) See this lovely cat-portrait come to life, and take dazzling Ezmerelda home to adore and adorn your home.

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.
