Pets of the Week

This week’s Pets of the Week come from the Washington County/Johnson City Animal Shelter. They are all wonderful animals, as are the other dogs, cats, and assorted pets at your local and regional shelters.

Take one (or two) home and share some warmth and love with them. It will be one of the best things you’ve ever done.

• Midnight is a dark black, adult, neutered, male domestic short hair who loves to be touched, and truly loves the company of others. He’d make a first-rate companion for any person or family, and he’s just as sweet as he is handsome. Take him home!

• Blue is a super-sweet, handsome boy who really, really needs a loving home. He is a strong, active blue pit bull mix, and he’s all about being around good people. He loves active, older kids and likes most other dogs, but he is not a fan of cats. He is, however, a big fan of visits and attention, so please come by and give him a bit of both.

• Mao is a five-year-old, spayed, female, domestic short hair, dark gray torbie with a very outgoing personality and a sweet disposition. She’s a sweetheart, folks. If you have room in your heart and home for another cat (or a first cat), this young lady will do nicely. Pay her a visit and see for yourself.

• Kobe has skills. He is a very sweet, very cool, six-year-old, male Chihuahua mix and he is ready for some fun. He is active, outgoing, and very bold and friendly for a small breed. He has a black, brown, and white/gray coat, and he loves people - the staff at the front all say he’s a sweetheart and a keeper. Come on over and see why they speak so highly.
