Pets of the Week

This week’s Pets of the Week come to us courtesy of the Washington County/Johnson City Animal Shelter:

• Sable is a cutie. n eight-week-old, neutered, male domestic short hair, this little, black-coated kitten is a delight. He is friendly and fun, but still scared of his surroundings and in dire need of a good home. If you get the chance, pay him a visit and decide if your place would be the right place for him.

• Rufus could use a good drink of water in this photo, he’s been playing with a man who hopes to be his future owner! A three-year-old, neutered, male, tri-color hound, he would make anyone proud, and there are several more hounds here at the shelter just waiting for your visit. If you are in the market for a handsome, happy fella, Rufus and his friends would like to say hello!

• Oscar loves to nibble and play, and this brown, nine-month-old, male Guinea Pig had a great time with people who stopped by his cage today. If you like Guinea Pigs (and who doesn’t, right?), this little guy is a friendly reminder of why they can be such a good pet.

• Maci is an eight-month-old, female, tri-color Terrier/Basenji mix who loves people and other dogs to play with. If you have a young family who would like to grow with a wonderful, young dog, then Maci would be the perfect choice to make. Come visit and see for yourself!
