Shelter Profiles!!!

So here are this weeks shelter pet profiles and the KVHS pet of the week profile:

The KVHS pet of the week:

This weeks "pet of the week" is a really fun dog named Moe. He is mixed breed and is fairly large. He has a lot of energy and loves to bounce around. He is pretty good on walks, although he does like to dash out doors. He probably needs some training, but he is super smart so he will learn quick. He came in as a stray and has been here for a while, so I can't wait for him to get a good home. He is a very eager to please kind of dog.

*just a note, because he is a pet of the week he has a reduced adoption fee*

My shelter dog profile:

This week's dog profile is an awesome dog named Bonnie. She is a Catahoula Leopard Dog mix. If you don't know what a Catahoula Leopard Dog is google pictures of one because they are AMAZING! They have gorgeous fur. Bonnie has the same awesome fur but on a more pit bull type body. She came in with her brother, Clyde. Clyde is now in his forever home and enjoying life. Bonnie however is still waiting for her new home. She is very active and very smart. Today I starting teaching her to lie down, play dead, and rollover. She learns very very quickly. She loves to play and be with people. I believe she is about 1 year old.

My shelter cat profile:

This weeks cat profile is a really sweet cat. His name is Sphynx. He is also gorgeous. He is a white medium to long haired cat with one blue eye and one yellow eye. He has very cute ears. One of them is erect, but the other is folded. He would like to be an only pet because he doesn't like other animals very much. He is a super neat cat. He keeps his cage very clean. He doesn't spill water, food, or litter, and doesn't even wrinkle his blankets. Compared to most of the other kitties cleaning up after him is a snap.

A note on Sphynx: He is not currently housed at the shelter. Different pets stores like Petsmart offer to take some of the cats and house them for the shelter. I believe he is currently at the Kennel Shop in Augusta, but I am not 100% sure. If anyone who viewed this blog was interested in him you can contact the KVHS.

My "pocket pet" profile:

My pocket pet profile for this week is a mouse named Mickey. He is the cutest mouse I have ever seen in my life. He is very small with rather long, fluffy black and white fur. He is a very friendly mouse. He loves his wheel and his little blue plastic igloo. He doesn't particularly like carrots, but he loves sunflower seeds. He likes to be held (once you catch him that is. He is super fast!). Once I am holding him he usually doesn't want to go back in his ten gallon tank and clings to may hand. He has been at the shelter for a while, so because of mouses' short lifespan he probably wouldn't be around for very long, maybe a year at the most. But he is definitely worth it. He is the best mouse ever. He is probably best kept in glass tank with a wire mesh lid. (He is very small so he can fit through most wire cage bars. In his forever home he would like a nice wheel and fluffy soft bedding. And plenty of tissues or toilet paper which he LOVES making beds out of.
