Pets of the Week June 6, 2016

3-year-old Ben was a lost dog found by Animal Control. He appears to be a Rough Coat Collie mix, although more importantly what we do know is that he is simply a wonderful dog. This laid-back fella loves everyone and is the epitome of what “going with the flow” looks like. His gorgeous, thick black coat makes him a standout in any crowd. Ben is a herding dog who is sensitive and intelligent, has an undying loyalty and amazing ability to foresee his owner’s needs. He is an ideal family dog and companion.

Gatsby is the “Chatty Kathy” of the Adoption Center. In fact, he was awarded a plaque for his achievement. In hindsight he should have been named Lassie because the tone and urgency of his talking would lead you to believe that, indeed, there is a Timmy is in a well. Gatsby is a big guy, 5-years-old, and spots a handsome gray and white short coat. He is a social mingler and enjoys the company of other cats. Visit Gatsby and help us understand what he’s trying to say. Perhaps he’s simply expressing his want for a forever home.
