Pet of the Week: Desmond

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Desmond, a male Hound available for adoption locally.

Here is what his friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation have to say about him:

Don’t let Desmond’s age fool you… it’s just a number! This sweet boy can do zoomies in the yard with the best of them. Desmond can be a little shy when first meeting new people, but once he gets to know you he is full of love and snuggles.

He has great leash manners and loves to go for long walks through the park. He’s also thrilled to go on car rides and loves to stick his head out the window! You’ll make Desmond’s day if a car ride involves a stop at Starbucks for a puppuccino (aka a cup of some sweet, sweet whipped cream)!

While Desmond has been friendly and playful with most female dogs we’ve introduced him to, he is not a fan of other male dogs, and is looking to be your one and only pet in a quiet, adult-only home.

Desmond’s adoption fee has been sponsored! One of his fans has pre-paid his adoption fee, so his new family won’t have to.

Are you and Desmond a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.

Pet of the Week: Oshie

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Oshie, a brown and white Pit Bull mix available for adoption locally.

Here’s what his friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation have to say:

Oshie is smiley, sweet and loves naps!

Oshie loves playing with all kinds of toys and when he’s not playing he’s sleeping. He is such a cuddle bug! He doesn’t like to be surprised, so slow movements are a must. But once he is comfortable he loves all the love he can get.

Oshie likes treats and knows “sit” and “come.” As for exercise, he’s mostly a lazy pup with some spurts of energy. He gets a little excited when he sees birds and squirrels, but is overall good on the leash.

Oshie is crate trained, and can be trusted alone in the home while his family is at work as long as he’s in the crate. He has had no accidents in his foster mom’s house and sleeps through the night in bed with her.

He has been joining doggie playgroups while at Lost Dog and has a great time! He does play rough and it is good to keep a close eye on him. Still, Oshie would likely do best in an adults-only home where he can be the only dog so that his family can give him all the undivided attention he deserves.

Come meet this love bug today!

Are you and Oshie a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.

Pet of the Week: Coal and Lacey

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Coal and Lacey, a black male Labrador and a female Pit Bull mixed breed available for adoption locally.

Here’s what their friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation have to say:

Coal and his buddy Lacey are like peanut butter and jelly, gin and tonic or Bert and Ernie — you just simply can’t have one without the other!

Coal’s two loves in life are Lacey and tennis balls! He plays fetch like a pro and is a complete gentleman bringing the ball back and dropping it right at your feet. Lacey loves rolling in grass, playing with toys, head scratches and Sunday morning strolls in good company.

Coal and Lacey are well-mannered house guests and good with small children. They get along with some other dogs, but would really prefer to be the only two in the home. Coal and Lacey are great walking companions, travel well in the car and are perfect on the leash.

Coal and Lacey lost their lifetime home when their owner passed away and have not yet found the right fit in a new home. This incredibly special duo and bonded pair are looking for a final, forever home where they can grow old together feeling safe and loved.

Coal and Lacey are so beloved that their adoption will be FREE thanks to a member of the Coal and Lacey fan club who couldn’t keep them in their home, but wanted to help them find their final forever home!

Are you, Coal and Lacey a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.

Pet of the Week: Steffy

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Steffy, a black and chocolate female Jindo available for adoption locally.

Here is what her friends at Two Dog Farms, Inc has to say:

Steffy is a 4 year old female Jindo, weighing around 50 lbs, who we recently rescued from the shelter in Dallas, Texas.

She is a happy little girl, and has a wagging tail and likes treats, (no aggression noted), and appears to get along with other dogs (though as with any dog, regardless of breed, age or gender, we’d recommend caution and patience with introductions).

Steffy was Heartworm Positive, but we have treated her over the past few months since she has been in rescue and she has been declared free of Heartworm.

Are you and Steffy a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.

Pet of the Week: Hueso

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Hueso, a black and white mixed breed available for adoption locally.

Here is what Hueso from Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation has to say about himself:

Hola! My name is Hueso (Spanish for “bone” — yum!). I came to Lost Dog from Puerto Rico with my mom Pink, who was my best pal, but she’s been adopted and now I’d love to have a forever home too.

I’m what you call an “all-purpose” dog — I love a good hike, especially if it means I can splash around in some water — but I’d equally love to curl up on your couch with you and bang out an entire season of Stranger Things in one sitting, with an occasional bathroom break for both of us, of course!

I’m an easy walker and love to stop to roll around in patches of grass… and maybe eat some when you’re not looking. While I love to play with dogs in playgroup, sometimes they make me nervous on walks, so I’d prefer to be your one and only love.

I have a condition called Megaesophagus (I can’t pronounce that, can you?) which means my esophagus doesn’t push food down to my stomach very well. It sounds much worse than it is! It just means I eat from a special bowl and have to wait a little bit for a walk after I eat. But I promise I’m just as happy, healthy and handsome as other dogs!

I’m a pretty perfect dog and I can’t wait for my forever home and lots of adventures filled with hikes, waterfalls, grass and maybe the occasional puppacino!

Are you and Hueso a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.

Pet of the Week: Nala

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Nala, a mixed breed adult female available for adoption locally.

Here is what her friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation have to say about her:

Nala is a dreamy girl ready to go home and give you all the love and attention your heart could desire. She is a gorgeous pup who runs on the fuel of pure love! Although she is three years old, when sufficiently motivated, she can summon up puppy-like energy.

For example, when she sees someone she knows coming to visit, she’ll jump straight up in the air to do her signature dance (read “enthusiastic bum wiggle”) to greet you! When out on walks, Nala quickly goes to the bathroom and then is eager to sit with her walker, offering her belly and ears for rubs. She just loves to play and romp with her people — her energy is contagious!

Nala has been on a few sleepovers and people say she is the model house guest. Apart from sincere (and sometimes successful) puppy eyes to join you in bed, she listens and follows house rules. All she asks for is plenty of cuddles, a patch of sun to snooze in, and a few treats thrown in for good measure. She sits on command and we think her love of treats could be easily used to train her further.

Nala would prefer to be the only dog in the home — she does not want canine competition for your affections! She is all about her humans — to give love and receive love is all that she wants in life.

If you’re looking for a lively snuggle bug to fill your days with kisses and bum wiggles, come meet Nala!

Are you and Nala a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.

Pet of the Week: Marvelous Merrick

Becky's Pet Care

Meet the Marvelous Merrick, a male Retriever & Border Collie mix puppy available for adoption locally. Here is what his friends at Safe Haven Puppy Rescue have to say about him:

Merrick truly is a marvelous little boy. Just 16 weeks old he’s still a puppy, yet not a tiny baby which has it’s advantages.

He weighs 11 pounds now which means he’ll likely be a pretty small guy when full grown, perhaps around 25 pounds, so he’ll be easy to bring along on all sorts of adventures.

He’s been lots of fun to have in our office where he gets along famously with the other office dogs around his size. This fabulous boy is a nice blend of friendly affection and normal puppy playfulness and will be great company.

Are you and Merrick a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.

This boy is such a nice blend of friendly affection and normal puppy playfulness we’re confident he will steal your heart in no time. He is up to date on all shots and dewormings, has been neutered.

Pet of the Week: Optimistic Orion

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Orion, a male Labrador Retriever mix available for adoption locally.

Here is what his friends at Safe Haven Puppy Rescue have to say about him:

Orion and his siblings Olga and Olive are beautiful black lab mix babies, just 12 weeks old and now ready to go to their forever homes. Orion and Olga are a bit bigger than Olive at about 20 pounds but who knows if that will last. We think this group will be a nice medium size of 45 to 55 pounds when grown, give or take a little.

All three of these pups have friendly, happy dispositions and are fairly calm for puppies as you can see in their pictures — we often have to hold the pups to get any kind of pics at all, but these three were very cooperative and happy to pose during their photo session.

This great little guy is a nice blend of friendly affection and normal puppy playfulness and will be great company.

Are you and Orion a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.
