Pet of the week- Mr. Smokey

Pet of the week- Mr. Smokey

Meet Mr. Smokey!

This eight-year-old Jack Russell Terrier mix is both sweet and friendly. He is fairly typical of his breed in that he is very smart, confident and independent, but he’s also a big lover!  Positive reinforcement training would help him focus his energy and learn even more commands than he already knows. Mr. Smokey would do best in a somewhat active home with experienced adult owners (older kids and other dogs ok).  He is eligible for our Senior for Senior Program in which adoption fees are waived for adopters who are at least sixty-years-old and adopting animals over the age of five.

Pet of the Week- Torpedo!

Meet Torpedo! A very energetic and quirky dog who is a year and six-months old. He is a Pug/Corgi Cardigan Welsh mix, which gives him a very unique look.

Torpedo is a happy dog who just loves to have fun running and playing outside!  He is both adventurous and independent, but also loves to hang out with his people friends. As you can see from his picture, he's got a big smile on his face!

Torpedo would do best as an only dog in a very active, adult household with someone who is home often to play and walk with him. He is a bright guy and should do well with a little training to focus his energy.
