Dewey is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week starting May 8, 2017
“Dewey is a very handsome four-year-old male Pit-Bull Terrier Mix. He seems to be good with other dogs and people of all ages. Dewey likes to chase cats, so a home that is cat free would be best suited for him. He will also need a fenced yard.
Dewey came into the shelter because his people didn’t have the time needed for him that he and all pets need and crave. Dewey is very playful and loves interaction with all.
Dewey has a lot of energy and would do best in an active home. He would make a great beach walking, hiking dog and a great companion. (Some further leash training would benefit Dewey for a perfect fit).
Dewey loves to play ball with people. Dewey knows basic commands and has learned (while in the shelter) how to “High Five, and Shake Paws.”
Dewey is a very affectionate and one of our volunteer favorites. If you are seeking a companion for walks, hikes and life’s adventures, please come and meet our awesome, gorgeous, smart “Dewey.” ❤❤❤❤
Nate, shown here with Dewey, wants us to know that “Dewey is a handsome boy that’s currently living at the shelter. He is very playful and listens to you. He really likes playing with balls, and will allow you to snuggle him and hug him and tickle him. Dewey is looking for a home where he will be treated kindly and is played with. I had a very fun time playing and taking pictures with Dewey.”
Howie is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week starting May 1, 2017
Jennifer tells us, “His name is Howie, but I’m in the habit of referring to him as Howard. It seems for dignified, more distinguished, more suitable for a cat of Howie’s nature. You can tell by the way he walks around the cat room, he considers himself one of the mature cats. He makes a point to greet those that come into the adoption room, stopping to chat with those people that he’s gotten to know over the past few weeks. Howie envisions himself as the host of a grand party, making sure everyone is having a good time. He’s a debonair gentleman who is already wearing the tuxedo. If he was a human, he would accessorize with the finest monocle and top hat. Come in and meet this classy guy.”
Adopted: Beans is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week starting April 17, 2017
Beans is a l5 year old Maine Coon look-alike. Becoming homeless is hard at any age but Beans seems to face her situation with patient endurance. She is content to lie curled in her personal mystery. We don`t know what is passing in her mind, but we surmise she might be wishing for a welcoming lap.
Adopted: Bebe is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week starting April 10, 2017
Laura, one of our volunteers, fell for this girl immediately. She says, “If you all haven’t had the privilege of meeting Queen Bebe yet, ya’ll better hop to it. 🐾 🐾She is the kind of gal you will want to know: wisdom in her beautiful eyes and the most gentle manner I have ever seen…she is a queen amongst us people!”
Bebe is gentle, easy to walk, and passed her cat test easily. Her family reluctantly brought her in because they were moving and couldn’t take her with them. If you’re looking for a lower energy dog, Bebe fits the bill: she’s seven and a half, past the high energy stage.
Jimmy is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week starting March 27, 2017
Volunteers say this nine year old doesn’t act his age; he’s a playful boy. He was grumpy when he first came in and is still a bit shy, but now warms up to people much more quickly. As you can see here, Jimmy has big, beautiful green eyes, all in all a handsome package with gray and brown brindle coat.
Dewey has been at the shelter far too long. This tennis ball-loving boy has stolen all our hearts and we are rooting for him to find a home soon. Dewey needs a home without cats (which he will chase) and a fenced yard is desirable Those are his only restrictions; he’s a great dog.
He is usually the first dog to get walked because we all adore him. He’s also perfected the look of quiet longing when anyone walks past his kennel. Dewey is really easy to please; tennis balls and a good throwing arm are all it takes to keep him happy.
ADOPTED! Duke is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week starting January 9, 2017
Duke`s owner was moving and couldn`t take him, so here he is at our shelter. This young boxer/pit mix is one of our most energetic dogs. He loves all outdoor activities and will do very well in an active home.
ADOPTED! Woofer is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week starting December 12, 2016
He may be well into his senior years, but this Lab still has a lot of stamina and is always at the front of his kennel, wagging his tail and ready for action with anyone who passes by. Woofer likes long, moderately paced walks and seems to get along with all the other dogs here. He’s just a happy old man waiting for a loving home.
Oreo and Cookie are our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pets of the Week starting November 28, 2016
Volunteer Sue Stein says, “The dynamic duo, Cookie and Oreo, are a lovely boxer/pit pair hoping to find their forever home together, as they are a bonded pair. Oreo has a lovely sable coat with eager eyes, curious about whether you might have just one more treat to share. Cookie, happily displaying a black and white soft fur ensemble, leaps for joy at the opportunity to go for a walk. The two walk nicely, shoulder to shoulder, looking for new smells and excitement in the meadows around the shelter.”
