1-year-old hound mix
Layla is an excitable young dog. She’s rather busy; if she’s not exploring her surroundings and picking up scents, she’s jumping on the nearest person for attention. Basic manners training will help work with her adolescent behaviors (jumping up and mild mouthy-ness) and build her confidence. Layla’s adopters will likely need to work on her approach with other dogs (she tends to bark at a distance). She’s very food motivated which will help with training (she also needs to learn how to take treats softer), and she loves to play with toys, which will be a great way to exercise her. Cute friendly young gal.
2-year-old domestic shorthair (been with the Society since September 2012!)
Oli is a handsome boy who came to the shelter when his owner could no longer care for him. Oli is a friendly, gentle boy who is sweet and flirty. He seems to like dogs and absolutely LOOOOOOVVVES other cats. In fact, he removes his cage divider so he can visit his feline neighbors! He would truly be happiest in a home with another cat or two to share his affections with. Of course, you’ll be getting the rest of them! Oli had an upper respiratory infection that was difficult for him to shake. He’s better now, but he could have a flare up in the future that might require a trip to the vet for antibiotics. Stress is the most likely trigger of an infection – and it’s hard to believe this cat could ever be that stressed. Mr. Mellow here is waiting to meet you; won’t you come say hello?
