Friday's Friend's

Hey!!  Happy Friday!!!!!  I know you are happy about today being Friday, probably more than I am - so celebrate!  It's a great day-

I've got two friends I'd like you to meet today.  If you are looking for a companion or an addition to your family, here are two that deserve your attention.

Meet Archie!   He's a 1 year old Lab/Shepherd mix.  When he fills out from the good food you'll give him, he'll weigh around 50 lbs.  He's had a  rough start in life, ending up at a county shelter severely underweight and desperate for a family to enjoy and would love him with exercise and playtime.

Archie loves to play with people and other dogs, but he can be a bit rambunctious, so his ideal home will not have young children, and will provide a lot of outdoor playtime in a fenced-in back yard, as well as daily walks. His age and enthusiasm make him a great candidate for an active family with dog experience, or a family who is willing to continue his training and consider dog sports such as agility or flyball. 

Archie is being fostered by a dog trainer who is helping him learn to be calmer when interacting with new people and dogs. He is proving to be very intelligent and trainable young pup, which is probably true to his probable breed mix.

My friend is house trained, microchipped, neutered and up-to-date on shots. If you would like to know more about Archie, please complete an online application and Mike or Ann will contact you, PetConnect Rescue Application.

And, I would like to introduce you to Jackson, another friend who is looking for a Forever Home.

Meet Jackson!! Several people who met him at the rural SPCA said that if they were to take another dog, he would be the one. A consistent runner-up, caused the stay at the kennel stretched into many months.

Jackson is a 2 yr old Boxer mix who has the gentleness of a Boxer, but in a smaller package. Underweight now, he should probably weigh around 55 lbs when he gains some needed pounds from the delicious good food you'll feed him. 

A sweet boy, Jackson waits quietly for attention to come his way, and is so grateful for love and a nice long walk. He is calm, gentle, affectionate, and loves all people, older children (10+), and other dogs, but isn't good with cats. Jackson is microchipped, neutered, heartworm negative and up-to-date on shots. 

If you would like to know more about Jackson, please complete an online application and we will contact you, PetConnect Rescue.

Thank you to PetConnect Rescue,, for supplying me with the two pics and profiles of Archie and Jackson.
