Both Andy and Calamity have found their fur-ever homes! YAY!
Yesterday (April 30) was National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day. So, we wandered over to the City / County Animal Shelter and sponsored two wonderful dogs, Andy and Calamity.
Andy is a 4-year-old lab/mix neutered male who is up-to-date on vaccines. Andy is very toy motivated, but is good with his toys. He knows sit and down, and will gently nudge the ball into your lap to get you to throw it. He would fit in great with an active family or would make an excellent running partner. He is very sweet, allows you to take the ball from him with no problems and has the most expressive ears and face—we fell in love with him the moment we saw him. You can learn more about Andy here.
We also sponsored Calamity, a 3-year-old Heeler/Bulldog mix. Calamity knows basic commands, including sit; she is spayed and up-to-date on her vaccinations. She is very toy motivated and loves to play with everyone she meets. She’s very sweet, and is a medium sized dog. She seems to be a little picky about her dog friends. She was brought in as a stray so we don't know much of her past, but we do know she's a total sweetheart and would love to be loved by her own family. You can learn more about Calamity here.
While Andy and Calamity are both mix breeds, the shelter is full of quite a few dogs that a pure breeds, including three dachshunds, an Akbash, Boston terrier, papillon, German shepherd, and a lab. And, if you're not looking for a furry friend, there is a lizard waiting for a home as well.
There are all sorts of benefits to adopting a dog or cat from the shelter, but the greatest, in our eyes, is that you save a life.
