Friday's Friend, Dog Adoption, Cat Adoption

Dog Adoption
WOOF! Barks, Meows and Purrs! What a pawsomely busy week we've had. Samson and I had a visitor in our home. His name is Luke, a 1-year-old Labrador Retriever. My humans are learning about him and participating in a foster to adopt with him- Dad is looking for a dog to take the through the Service Dog training to help him while I retire and kick-back! We'll see how it goes.

Barks and meows, Samson and I will be barkingly, and meowingly for that matter, writing about our friends from local rescues needing "Forever Homes" on August 2! WOOF!!

Keep Your Cat from Becoming Lost!

5-tips-to-keep-cat-from-becoming-lost
(C) Petfinder, Used by Permission


'MEOW! With all the pawsome warm weather this season, it's time for humans to celebrate and have outdoor grill-out pawties! MEOWS! 

Many cats go missing this time of year because of humans going in and out the doors and not paying enough attention to the cat making sure he doesn't get out! Hiss! Be sure to ask your guests to be alert for the cat.  

Make sure you have pawlenty of recent photos, with camera phones that's not too hard to do, handy so if you need to identify your cat at the shelter, you'll be prepared! My human keeps an updated gallery on his phone and desktop computer of me and Noah so he can always identify us. 

Paws, make sure your cat has a collar with an ID on it. We like to include my name, address, and phone number so it's handy should another human need it. Keep it and the microchip updated. 

Meows, place your cat's food, water dish, toys and litterbox in a closed room. Maybe play some of that long-haired music my human loves, you know- Beethoven, Bach, or Mozart? That'll really help keep the cat from accidentally escaping! 

HISS! Should your cat become missing, pawlease contact your local shelter immediately! Paws, contact your neighbors to let them know and post flyers throughout the community. Some communities, like ours, have Facebook and Nextdoor pages dedicated to helping unite missing pets and their humans! Become familiar with those now before you need it. 

Purrs! Enjoy your pawties this season- be sure to take precautions for your cats.

WOOF! BARKS! I love catching up with "Lab Lady!" from Lab Rescue! This week, she brought by a dog for you to meet who is almost, note I pawed 'almost,' as unique as she is. Er, uh, barks, that's a good thing! A barking good thing. Meet Jaxson!

Jaxson is looking for his "Forever Home" in a rural or suburban single-family house or townhouse (woof! provided he can get enough exercise!). He is approved for townhouse living as long as it is not in a loud/noisy area. He has a fenced yard requirement or leash walks with harsh or collar. Barks! no e-fences! WOOF! No super high traffic/noisy areas for leash walking.

Jaxon is around 2-years-old and a beautiful Yellow Labrador Retriever! He has unique spots on his ears and back making his extra special! woof!  With his young age, he will have a training addendum.

WOOF! Paws, Jaxson is food motivated so training may be easier. He does have to be corrected when he tries to hone in on everyone else's snacks!

Jaxon, barkingly, gets along with other dogs. He likes playing with them. Barks, or he'll do his zoomies all by himself. Bark.

Jaxson is crate-trained! He loves using it as his safe place. He prefers a plastic one with bedding since he likes to chew on it. Since he's scared of sudden noises and thunderstorms, he uses his crate to hide. Or pawssibly on his dog bed!

Jaxson pawsitively loves butt scratches, ear rubs and all the pawsome attention he can get. He is learning to cuddle with humans! 

WOOF! Barks, Jaxson is learning his leash skills but will need a harness and collar (double-leashed) as you never know when a loud noise will scare him!

WOOF! An electric fence is not permitted for Jaxson since he is easily scared by loud noises. It's pawssible he will get going with the zoomies and make a run through it to escape it! 

Jaxson is approved for mini-humans ages 10 and older. He is good with other dogs but has no history with cats. 

WOOF! Barkly, if you would like to learn more about dog adoption, pawlease visit Lab Rescue's Dog Adoption Guide

She is a young puppy and still has lots of young-puppy-dog energy! She likes to play with toys, go for walks, hikes, runs, and any other activity you enjoy! She enjoys going to doggie daycare and playing in the yard.

Barkingly, she's liked all the humans she's met so far, adults and mini-humans! She has been to a few busy adoption events and behaved quite well. My human met her at an event and was pawleasantly surprised at how well she behaved. WOOF!

Dog AdoptionWOOF! WOOF! I am surprised to learn that my friend Adam from Healing Hearts Animal Rescue Group is still looking for humans to love and his "Forever Home!" Woof, he's such an adorable 10-month-old Beagle/Hound mix! He was born at the rescue. All of his siblings and his mother have been adopted.

Barks, Adam can be a little shy at first but he does warm up quickly. He is very sweet, young, playful, smart and an affectionate kinda guy! WOOF!

Adam loves other dogs and even tolerates his foster's cat.

Paws, though he is still puppy-like, he is not a hyper-type guy!

Adam will do well with an active family who likes taking long walks. He walks well on a leash too! Barkingly, he enjoys lounging next to you on the couch too!

Barks, Adam is house-trained to use a doggie door.

If you would like to learn more about dog adoption, apply to meet or adopt Adam, or donate to his care, pawlease visit Healing Hearts Animal Rescue Group or email: hharginfo@gmail.com.
