Pets of the week
Wednesday, August 17, 2011
Houdini is a 3-year-old domestic medium-hair brown tabby. He came to the shelter as a stray. Houdini will need to be indoors only in order to keep his coat free of mats. He would like a slow introduction to his new household and to go to a home with children older than 10 as he doesn’t like to be held.
Cobie is an 8-year-old Lhasa apso and Shih Tzu mix that came to the shelter when his family could no longer care for him. He is a friendly little guy that appears to be house-trained and loves car rides. Cobie will need a home with children older than 14 and would like to meet any female dogs he will be spending time with. He needs to have a home without other male dogs. Cobie knows sit, stay, down and shake.
