Pets of the Week

There are plenty of animals in need of adoption at your local shelters, folks, and the numbers keep groeing each and every day. One bright note - the number of cats is going down at the Johnson City facility lately, but with the weather getting better and spring and summer finally on their way, expect that to change in a hurry.

This week’s Pets of the Week:

• Loki is a handsome boy, to say the least. With his deep blue Husky eyes and thick gray coat, he is the poster boy for the breed. This one-and-a-half-year-old neutered male is very active, housebroken, and looking for a family with older kids who can take him running, playing, and adventuring. If that sounds like you, this could be your new pet!

• Rosie is a beautiful young two-and-a-half-year-old spayed female Pointer/Setter mix who loves to be around people. She is a little overwhelmed at the moment, and is not a big fan of the shelter (or cats), but she would love to go to a home that offers active kids and lots of attention. She likes other dogs, but tends to dominate other female dogs, so keep that in mind. Come see Rosie!

• Obito is a tri-color Tabby (gray, brown, black) who is not a fan of having his picture taken. Once we got past that, though, this big boy became quite the friendly fella. He is a 5-year-old domestic short hair who loves people, likes to take things slowly, and enjoys a relaxing lap now and again. He would be a treat to have around the house.

• Buster is a two-year-old neutered domestic short hair with a gorgeous coat of fur and a very likable personality. A gray and white spotted male, he is very popular with people, and loves the attention - but he also has no problem being on his own. As long as there’s a home, he’ll be happy in it - so help make him happy!
