Pets of the Week, Jan. 4-11

Tuscany

Breed: Terrier, American Pit Bull / Mix

Age: 5y 4m Gender: Female

Color: Brindle / White

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Size: Medium

 

“This gal has some unmatched beauty, just look at that beautiful coat! Tuscany can be found resting in her kennel with her kennel mate, but when you appear with a leash, this laid back princess is ready to go. She is easy to handle and walks very well on a leash. Her favorite activity is wiggling on her back in the grass, snorting like a little piggy the whole time. She enjoys her peanut butter treats, but never begs. Tuscany came to us pre-programmed; she already knows basic commands. I think Tuscany would be delighted with a family that would welcome her clownish and entertaining personality.”

Thorpe

Breed: Retriever, Labrador / Mix

Age: 1y 3m Gender: Male

Color: Tan / White

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Size: Small 

“This boy walks politely on a leash and enjoys a casual stroll. He can be a little shy at first, but it doesn't take long for him to become more relaxed. His tail continuously wags when he meets other dogs. He is a calm and gentle natured guy that just likes to hang and chill. He is super snuggly and will climb right up into your lap and push his sweet muzzle right into your neck. Thorpe would probably enjoy the comfort of another dog friend.”
