Pets of the Week for April 8

Staff Reports • Dec 17, 2015 at 6:17 PM

Petie is a happy, friendly boy who never hesitates when meeting a new friend, either doggy or human. This sweet little dude came to New Leash on Life from a local animal control facility.  Petie weighs about 15 pounds and appears to be a purebred miniature Schnauzer. Petie is super friendly and has tons of energy.  He requests a running buddy or playmate so he can work out some of that energy. Daily, long, brisk walks or jogs would be ideal, and he would probably love play sessions off the leash. Petie hasn’t been at the adoption center long but from what volunteers have seen, he is good around other pets if the other pet tolerates Petie’s exuberance. As always, slow introductions are best. 

He loves all people, but because of his exuberance, he can be a little frightening to small children. Schnauzers shed little to no hair, so Petie might be a good dog for allergy sufferers. He is neutered, micro-chipped and current on vaccinations. Petie enjoys attention and will come right up and nudge for it. He has a strong, sure character. Need a great, true companion?  Please consider Petie. With an approved application, Petie can be your little friend for life for $135. All New Leash on Life dogs must be adopted to families willing to have their pets be allowed inside, especially at night.

Emmy Lou is a beautiful, round-faced, almost 5-year-old, silver-and-black, tick-patterned tabby cat that came to New Leash on Life with her four tiny one-day-old kittens in tow last April. Her kittens have long been adopted, and Emmy Lou still waits and wonders when she will find her forever family.  She is a little shy with new people, but given time she will make a very lucky family a wonderful companion. Emmy Lou is one of those cats that wants attention on her terms but does not care to be picked up. She gets along with other cats, but doesn’t really care for dogs. She is litter-box trained, spayed, micro-chipped and current on vaccinations. Adopt Emmy Lou for $25. All cats must be indoor only and shall not be declawed.

Ocean is an unusual name for a dog, but this is an unusual dog. Ocean is medium-sized, probably about a year old, with blue eyes. He is mostly white with some merle spots, so he is probably a result of a genetic mix that also made him deaf. He is super-short haired. Ocean is in a foster home and is good with all the dogs there except one that is not happy with him. He is good with cats and is well-mannered with children. Ocean is healthy, current on shots and neutered. For information on Ocean, contact Nakia 615-408-2056 or 615-708-6546.

Mellow Milo may be a purebred beagle, or he might have some basset hound in him, but this boy is mellow and calm. Milo is about 2 years old and is good with other dogs, cats and all visitors.  He is healthy, neutered, current on shots and heartworm negative. It’s hard to believe that no one was looking for him when he was found as a stray, but he will make a wonderful companion pet for any family. And his size is just right for any home. Come meet Milo; he is a four-legged stress reliever. For information, call Country K-9 Rescue at 615-444-8011.

Visit countryk9.petfinder.com or find Country K-9 Rescue on Facebook at Country K-9 Rescue Adoptable Pets to see other available rescued pets. Adoption fees are usually $100 for dogs and $50 for cats or kittens. All pets are fully vetted and healthy.
