Tucson adoptable dogs, catsby Karyn Zoldan on Nov. 02, 2011, under Adopt Me! Adopt Me! Adopt Me!, Cats Meow, Feline Fun, Dogs, Canines, Fun with Fido, Barking Encouraged
On the first and third Wednesdays of every month, Tucson Tails blog will host some local adoptable pets in need of forever homes. To be considered for inclusion, send info by Tuesday at 3 p.m. The offer applies to rescue groups in So. Arizona. Please send to email@example.com
Jingle – 2-year-old, tan and white Heeler/Pointer mix female
Although they’re calling Jingle a Red Heeler mix, there must be Pointer genes mixed in too since she seems to enjoy chasing chickens and cats – not a behavior that endeared her to recent rescuers! Aside from that, Jingle was a loving and playful girl who “doesn’t know she’s a big dog.” Well, she’s not all THAT big – at only 44 pounds – but every ounce is totally enthusiastic, eager, and yearning to be a vital part of your life. Jingle gets along fine with dogs her size, but in her passion for play, she tends to be a bit rough on the smaller ones, so if you have another canine her size, they would probably be best friends. Since Jingle lived outside most of the time, she will most likely need some lessons in good house behavior, but she has the smarts to learn.
Sabrina – 5-year-old Siamese and Oriental Tabby mix female
Sabrina and her sister, Jasmine, lived with their family almost all of their lives. Sad to say, however, their move to a new home didn’t include these two sweet kitties and were brought to TALGV at the 11th hour. Sabrina is a beautiful, tan and white Siamese and Oriental Tabby mix with white paws, and although not a “lap cat” in the true sense of the word, she does like to lie next to you or by your feet to let you know that she’s around. She loves playing with toys, sleeping anywhere you let her and she’s pretty much a no sweat kind of girl. Her people said that she is a “one person” cat (but she does adore her sister and would love to stay with her for a combo adoption fee), so here’s hoping that one special person is right around the corner!
GREYHOUND ADOPTION LEAGUE (GAL)
Two greyhounds must find a home together. They are like salt & pepper, bread & butter, etc. They have lived together for a long time and their adopter can no longer care for them. Simone is 6 and Spencer is 9 years young. They are looking for a forever home with a big heart open to both of them. Simone & Spencer will be forever grateful.
Currently GAL’s website is offline because of a technical hiccup. If you are interested in adopting Spencer or Simone, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put you in contact with a GAL representative. Please put GAL in the subject line. Thank you. Simone & Spencer will be at the Greyhounds & Friends Fall Festival this Saturday, Nov. 5. You can meet them face to face or nose to nose.
Meet Suzie. She is a chocolate lab mix, about a year old, with lots of personality. She is great on leash and off, great with other dogs and kids. She’s been around horses and goats too! She’s a young playful dog, who will grow up to be a medium to large sized pet. She is crate trained and potty trained too, and trustworthy in the house.
Meet Meiko, a 7 year old , 13 pound male papillon who is well reserved but full of joy to greet you in your return home. He does well with other dogs, but prefers to sit by your side then in the company of another dog. I would suggest a home without small children because of his age and small size. He enjoys softer foods as he just had a full dental and lost some teeth in the process but is a healthy eater even with the loss of some of his teeth, Meiko is a very well behaved and a well mannered dog to snuggle up next to you on the couch. Meiko has plenty of life left and just wants a family to share it with. Meikos adoption fee is $150. He is neutered, up to date on all his shots, microchipped and has had a complete dental.
