PETS OF THE WEEK

 

Bear

Well howdy! My name is Bear and I am in need of a new home. You see I had a home where we had some cows and horses and well I just couldn’t leave them alone. I know I should have just walked away, but I couldn’t do it. So I am having to “relocate” to a place that doesn’t have any “farm” animals! I am a ten-month-old shepherd mix and I have all of my vaccinations, I am heartworm negative, I have a microchip, and I have been neutered. I guess this old cow dog needs to become a city slicker!

 

The Montgomery Humane Society

Tudor

Tudor here! I am here at the shelter hoping I can find a “real” home soon. I was brought in as a stray and I was never claimed. I am about seven months old and I have all of my vaccinations, I have a microchip, and I have been spayed. I am a fun girl that loves to find special places to curl up and snooze! It sounds like a good plan to me!
