Pets of the Week March 28, 2016

This 5-year-old handsome American Staffordshire Terrier is a dependable, good-natured, loyal companion. It would surprise some that this muscular dog with the impressive, confident presence is so easygoing. He has no need for other doggie companions because Krissco entertains himself every day running in the yard and playing with his toys. He has already learned how to sit and stay down, and is working on door manners. He must have moderate daily exercise to maintain his splendid muscle tone. Companionship is even more important, and extensive ongoing socialization is paramount. Krissco will respond well to a confident owner who will provide training and consistent rule-following. And if exuberant face-kissing is something you want, then Krissco can definitely fill the bill.

Sassy is 9-year-old Maine Coon mix, good-natured and affable, adapting well to many lifestyles and personalities. She likes being with people and has the habit of following them around, but she isn’t needy. She’s happy to receive attention when you direct it her way, but if you’re busy she’s satisfied to just supervise your doings. Close a door on her and she will wait patiently for you to realize the error of your ways and let her in. She’s not typically a lap cat, but she does like to be near you. Maine Coons usually enjoy a kittenish love of play; Sassy is more dignified, but she isn’t above a good game of chase. This overly relaxed feline would make a wonderful addition to a home with adults who enjoy a quiet lifestyle and napping, her most favorite activity of all.
