PETS OF THE WEEK

 

Bear

Well Hello! My name is Bear! I am a big friendly guy that was rescued by a kind stranger! He saw me lost and confused and he knew I needed his help. He brought me right to the shelter. My family never came to claim me and now I am up for adoption. I have all of my vaccinations, I am heartworm negative, I have a microchip, and I have been neutered. Everyone here has fallen in love with me, because I am such a friendly and gentle dog. I am a one-year-old shepherd mix and I promise you won’t regret making the trip to see me! I will steal you heart with my sweet disposition and good manners!

 

Roxy

Psssst. I am Roxy. I am a sweet shy girl that is in need of a new home. I had a home that I loved with an older lady, but she had to move closer to family across country and I could not go with her. I am about four years old and I have all of my vaccinations, I have a microchip, and I have been spayed. I have lived a quiet life with my previous owner so I probably need to live in another quiet home with adults only. Actually I would be nice company for someone that lived alone.
