LONGTIMERS!!! What’s that, you ask? Long-timers are animals who have been at the Shelter for more than two weeks. You may adopt a LONGTIMER for only $10 and this includes vaccinations, tags AND spay/neuter. Currently there are eight wonderful dogs who are LONGTIMERS, and they need forever homes, right away! All eight of these dogs are ready to go home with you, today. This week, the Pets of the Week videographer and the Shelter’s interim Volunteer Coordinator, Deborah, will step from behind the camera and give you a close up look at all eight LONGTIMERS! She will do this with the help of one of our best volunteers, Luis.
Dog #A182722 – You have to move fast to hang with “Char Char,” he is a high-energy, one year old male, neutered Black Mouth Cur mix. Char Char needs a home with a big yard and plenty of room to run, and he needs it right now! He is great with other dogs who are friendly to him, but he’s not too crazy about cats. Char Char LOVES to play with toys. He will even get a toy from the toy box and play with it by himself, with you or with another dog for hours!
Dog #A180909 – “Patty” is a gentle and playful female Black Mouth Cur mix, who also loves to run around and play fetch with toys. She is simply adorable. She walks well on a leash and gets along well with everyone. PATTY HAS BEEN ADOPTED!! HOORAY!!
Dog# A182503 Look into “Tanner’s” eyes and you will notice something unique and wonderful. His eyes are not the same color. One is brown and one is blue. This handsome, 3-4 year old, fun loving male Black Mouth Cur mix is probably part Catahoula Leopard because of his “glass eye.” “Tanner” is very loveable and in need of a new forever home right away.
Dog #A 182872 – At first, “Sunday” appears to be on the shy side, but she will warm up to you quickly and the next thing you know she will be begging for attention. Sunday is a kind and lovely, black, 8 month old Pit Bull mix. She is on the smaller side as the breed goes, but she does tend to pull on the leash, especially if she knows she is going out to play.
Dog #A181755 – Strong and lumbering, “Shadow” is a big, muscular 2 year old Pit Bull mix. Don’t let him intimidating appearance fool you, “Shadow” is a puppy at heart who just wants to play with toys and run in the yard. Because he is a big dog, he prefers to play with bigger people and once he has a toy, he would rather it not be taken from him, so he would rather live in a home with adults and older children. He is also housebroken and crate trained.
Dog#A174196 – “Princess” is a vision of beauty with a wonderful temperament and happy attitude. “Princess” is a little over a year old, she loves to jump to say hello, is very curious and she enjoys playing with toys and running around in the play yard. She is good with other dogs, but would prefer to live in a home without cats.
Dog#A180240 – “Dublin” as you can probably guess, has been at the Shelter since St. Patrick’s Day back in March, so he is ready to become a family member in someone’s home as soon as possible. He is a three- year old neutered Pit Bull mix; he is a big, muscular, handsome specimen, but really just a ball of goofiness in the play area. He appears to be housebroken and he really likes to run around and play with toys.
Dog #A180990 – “Last but not least is ”Patrick,” who has been at the Shelter since the first week in March and needs a forever home immediately. “ Patrick” is a friendly, energetic Labrador Retriever mix, who walks well on a leash and is a well behaved boy. He is a little on the shy side, so he might need to live with a family without small children, but he is a wonderful dog.
These eight LONGTIMERS are looking for new families to love, and are hoping you will come to the Shelter and adopt them, because they can leave out the door with you when you come. Remember, you will be saving a life by adopting one of these fantastic animals. Please keep in mind, however, that the animals’ stay at the Shelter is EXTREMELY limited, and they may or may not be available when you arrive. The Shelter is located at 3910 Old Canoe Creek Road in St. Cloud, or to find out what animals are available, check the adoptable pets on the Osceola County Animal Services website at http://www.osceola.org/go/pets.
