Firstly, a big thank-you to everyone who came to the benefit dinner on Monday! We had a great crowd for a great cause. The pooches below and their fellow furry friends are all very thankful for everyone’s support!
Bella the two-year-old Labrador Retriever mix is a sweet girl who was more than ready to stretch her legs in the off-leash run. We hurried over there and Bella had a great time sniffing around and investigating everything. How happy she would be to have a backyard to call her own! Bella would prefer to be an in adult-only home where she is the only dog, where she will quickly become the apple of your eye.
When Bella finished exploring the off-leash run, she came over to me and enjoyed a nice scratch on the neck before giving me a quick doggy kiss. Then the leash came back on and Bella did a pretty good job walking with me, though she did pull occasionally when the landscapers walked by (it was spring cleaning time at the shelter, even though it still doesn’t feel like spring!). Bella is an adorable girl who will grab your attention right away, so be sure to stop and say hello to her on your next visit!
Daisy the seven-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix is a volunteer favorite because she’s so easy-going and mellow. Although she’s pretty much all muscle and therefore strong, she doesn’t try to throw her weight around while walking on the leash and is happy to stay close to her person. Daisy recently had a litter of puppies and now she’s ready for some peace and quiet (but still plenty of fun!) in her new forever home.
Daisy is a very affectionate girl. She loves to give doggy kisses and enjoys a good scratch on the back. There was another dog in the off-leash run next to us, and the two of them had a great time going into play-bows and racing each other along the fence, always with their tails wagging happily. If you’re looking for a big, beautiful, brindle girl to add to your family, come in soon to meet Daisy!
Lance the three-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix is a super-cutie. He actually reminded me a lot of Elmo from last week, because he’s a smaller size and he absolutely thinks he’s a lap dog. When we got to the off-leash run, the first thing Lance did was find a tennis ball and then snuggle into my lap while holding onto the ball. His tail was wagging like crazy and he kept wiggling around in an attempt to get even closer to me.
Lance loves carrying tennis balls but hasn’t quite mastered the idea of “fetch” yet, though he did eventually drop the ball at my feet and let me pick it up and throw it again. Lance came from an owner who could no longer take care of him, so he knows how to be a good pet and is more than ready to prove it to you. If you’re looking for a bundle of fun and love, stop by the shelter soon and get to know Lance!
