“Jack would make a wonderful companion for anyone who enjoys the lake life. His playful personality really shines through the moment you turn on the water hose.

Week of Oct. 15

Dog

Marlon- Breed: Boxer / Mix

  • ·         Age: 3y 1m Gender: Male
  • ·         Color: White
  • ·         Spayed/Neutered: Yes
  • ·         Size: Medium

“Like most of our guests, Marlon can be enthusiastic at the prospect of getting his turn to romp through the play yard. Once he is outside, his leash manners improve and he is very playful. His tail wags continuously when he meets new friends to play with, both human and canine. If a dog buddy isn't so happy to meet him, he simply turns and walks away without incident. His favorite toy is a knotted rope and he enjoys a friendly game of tug, never concerning himself with who wins. Marlon can be fairly picky about his treats but has found hot dogs to be to his liking. He is a small little chap and is sure to leave plenty of room on the couch for others to join him!”


 

 

 CAT

Rascal- Breed: Domestic Shorthair / Mix

  • ·         Age: 5y 4m Gender: Male
  • ·         Color: Blue / Black
  • ·         Spayed/Neutered: Yes
  • ·         Size: Small
  • ·         Declawed: Yes

 

“Rascal is a great cat! He is declawed so he would make a fantastic indoor pet. He gets a little nervous around small children, but loves to be petted and shown affection. He loves bouncing back and forth between his cat trees. This little fella would make a great addition to any feline loving home!”
