Help get those dog tails wagging and those cats purring by attending Orphans of the Storm®’s Annual Benefit Dinner, Wags and Whiskers. It’s this Tuesday, April 9, at 5:30 p.m. I hope to see you there!
Norman the two-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix is a happy boy. I haven’t walked such an attentive dog in a long time! Norman likes to check in often with the person on the other end of the leash. Sometimes he stopped and looked up at me to get a reassuring pet, and sometimes he’d just look over his shoulder at me as he walked. He can pull a bit when he’s excited, but for the most part he’s a nice walking companion.
Norman is also affectionate. He joined me on the bench a couple times and gave me some doggy kisses. He enjoyed exploring the off-leash run but wasn’t particularly interested in playing fetch. Norman does well with other dogs and goes to play group often. He was even enlisted to help a new puppy learn appropriate play group manners. Come in soon to see if Norman is the pooch for you!
Sox the eight-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix is a super-sweet girl. Any time I knelt down to her level or she hopped up next to me on the bench, she covered my face in doggy kisses. Sox is also an excellent walking companion. She didn’t pull on the leash at all during our walk around the woodland preserve and was happy to walk at whatever pace I went.
Sox loves toys, especially stuffed animals. She can happily keep herself occupied by tossing the toys in the air and gently chewing on them. She liked having at least two toys to alternate between. Sox is looking for a special, caring home. She was diagnosed with mammary malignancy when she arrived at the shelter, but her prognosis is good and she still has time to warm up someone’s heart and home. If you’re looking for a lovable senior, come in soon to say hello to Sox!
