This week’s Shelter Dog is a 10 month-old neutered male. He is a Terrier-Chihuahua mix. He has never been around young children. He does not like his feet touched so he would have to be taken to the vet to have his toenails cut. He is good with cats. He may be seen at the shelter. Shelter staff have nick-named him “Eddie”.
From the Editor:
As a personal plea, from a person who has owned a rat terrier for the last 12 years, this little fellow looks like a ball of fun. Yes, they’re a touch hyper (Lordy, this one doesn’t like his feet touched? He’s got the hyper…) And yes, my heart still does leap out of my chest when my dog hears a mouse fart three blocks away and gives her “alert” bark. In the end though, my little hyper dog has given me, and my family, a whole ton of love. She’s hyper about love! So stop by the shelter, see Eddie (LIKE THE DOG FROM “Frasier”! I’m literally shouting in the office at my tired coworkers while writing this), and if this is your kind of dog, take the little booger home with you.
Other dogs available for adoption include, Bingo, a three-year-old female Husky, no cats; Fred, a two-year-old male black lab, housebroken; Jack, a four-month-old male border collie/boxer mix; Jill, a four-month-old female border collie/boxer mix; and Rocky, a two-year-old neutered male husky/shepherd mix, housebroken.
Cats are in and out of the shelter all the time. If you’re seeking a feline companion, call or stop by.
The dog adoption fee is $30, which includes an AVID identification chip. In addition, each new owner will receive a certificate for $50 off of spaying or neutering.
