Featuring two adoptable pups
Pets of the Week: Creek and Onyx
The Elmore County Humane Shelter has a pair of cutie pies in the line-up of featured adoptions this week. They make a very handsome pair, with Creek in his tuxedo duds.
Onyx is a 7-and-a-half-month-old female terrier mix at just 28 pounds, which is a great family dog size for most families, and she is just all love and personality. She could be perfect for your family.
Give her a toy, and she immediately tries to bury it (in dirt); dig it up, and she’ll try to bury it in the kiddie pool. Onyx just loves the water, whether in a kids pool or buckets, she doesn’t discriminate. She is playful, she is loving, she is entertaining, and she’s a real sweetheart…all according to Shelter Director Rea Cord, and she is also great with other dogs. Just awaiting that great opportunity to join a loving family.
The other handsome lad featured this week is called Creek, a male lab/pointer looking mix, 6 months old and about 40 pounds. He is a very sweet boy that loves toys and getting attention. He is great with other dogs, cats and children. Just looking for an active family that he can join to share his love and loyalty.
These two adoptable dogs make a fine pair and will certainly keep you healthy in the exercise department, just playing. Adoption fees for dogs remains at $100, and this includes mandatory spay/neutering, microchip, basic immunizations, rabies shot if old enough, and the first vet visit for that check-up. You will need to complete the application, and when that is approved, you will be able to “visit” the shelter to meet the dogs you fancy. You can call the shelter at 334-567-3377, or email Hselco@bellsouth.net.
The shelter cried out for dry animal food and got a healthy supply to tide them over; they are always so grateful for donations that help the animals.
These rain-filled days make a good snuggle time for you and your new pup; then when it dries up, the pair of you could go for a walk in the sunshine. Remember to take the water bowl.
Until next time,
The Dog Lover
