What kind of dog are you looking for?
By Megan Gabel
The SPA houses an average of 50 dogs – puppies, teenagers, adults, and more mature ones – with a range of personalities, appearances and dispositions. If you’re looking to adopt a dog, we surely have the right one to fit you.
Like Venus. She’s a medium/large bundle of energy who would be great company on a run. A two and a half year old sleek beauty, Venus will easily keep stride with you, but be prepared – she will want some affection time when the run is over. She uses her paw to let you know that she’s waiting to be petted and praised and she will patiently absorb every bit of attention you are willing to give her.
How about a small/medium energetic and playful sweetheart? That’s Little Frida. About three years old, she has a smile on her face and is joyful. She first came to the SPA when her owner became too ill to take care of her. After a few months, she was adopted, but then returned when her new family had to move without her. It’s time for her forever home, don’t you think?
Do you want a tough, medium-sized guy who will scare away strangers, but give you tons of kisses? That’s Ace. A little over a year old, he has a deep bark and ferocious growl saved for strangers, but he loves to stretch across your lap for mutual affection time. He is very smart, playful, and protective of his favorite humans.
There’s Brandy, almost one and a half years old, full of energy, curious, outgoing, and eager to play. Medium-sized, she’s been at the SPA since she was two months old when she was abandoned at the train station.
A Rhodesian Ridgeback mix, Jake, a two and a half year old medium-sized boy, is affectionate, loving, and playful. Like Ace, he’s not that fond of strangers, but when he knows you, he becomes your best friend.
Nellie, a bit reserved, will be loyal to you forever. Medium-sized, a little over three years old with a pretty face, Nellie is yearning for a person to love. If you’re lucky, that person could be you.
