Shelter Sunday: Southern Pines Animal Shelter, Hattiesburg, MS

Is this not the cutest puppy face you’ve ever seen?  This is Jolie, a resident at the Southern Pines Animal  Shelter in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.  She’s a two-month old Labrador Retriever mix.  I don’t usually showcase young dogs on my Shelter Sunday feature because there are so many older dogs in need, but I just couldn’t resist this face!

Shelter Sunday: New Spirit 4 Aussie Rescue, Inc. / Blooming Prairie, MN

Meet Blitz!  Blitz is a 2yo purebred blue merle Aussie girl. She’s has one blue eye, one brown eye and a docked tail. She was turned in with Lillie at the shelter, as an ex breeder dog. She is a rambunctious little gal for sure and we are working on getting her to stay down, she loves to jump on people! She is really a great dog, especially when she settles down.  She loves to cuddle when she does settle down and she always has kisses to give.  She is a little slow to warm up to some men, but loves women.

Shelter Sunday: Animal Adoption Foundation / Ross, Ohio

Shelter Sunday will be just a little different this weekend.  I spent the holidays with my Mom in Southwestern Ohio, and as one of our outings, we went to the tiny (think 2-sided stop signs) town of Shandon, Ohio.  As part of their annual Christmas in the Country festival, they had a dog parade featuring some of the dogs available for adoption at the Animal Adoption Foundation in nearby Ross, Ohio.

Shelter Sunday: Chocolate Chip Dalmation Assistance League / Adelphi, MD

Meet Katherine Hepburn. Here’s what she wrote on Chocolate Chip Dalmation Assistance League’s website.

Hello, I am Katie and I am a pretty, petite, female, 1-2 year old Dalmatian mix that was pulled from a local animal shelter in Maryland. I was very happy to go home with my foster mom and run around in her big yard! I am told that I can be very charming especially when I cock my head and put my ears up.

I am also playful, curious, and energetic. Every day is like a new adventure with a yard to explore, birds to listen to and try to figure out where all the chirping is coming from, and squirrels to watch. I love to play, play, play and run around the yard with my two other foster brothers (Cary and Astro). I also understand the word “ball” and will go look for it and hopefully find it when you tell me to, but I am not going to give it back right away! I like to run around and play with it on my own.

I am very pretty when I sit and am working very hard to not jump up and understand down, but it is easy to forget when I get excited to see someone or smell something yummy in the kitchen! I also would love to come up and sit in your lap, but am undrstanding that I need to be invited or I have to stay on the floor. I am told I am a smart girl and am learning quickly.

At the end of a big day, I like to curl up in my crate and will burrow down for the night in my big, soft blanket. I sleep easily through the night and am ready to go the next day. I also snooze patiently in my crate while you are gone and ready to go when you come home with my tail wagging and wagging.

I am spayed, housebroken, up to date on shots, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. I also have no health problems and love playing with other dogs. A buddy would be wonderful! I would benefit from continued obedience training and clear, consistent direction. If you think I am right for you, please fill out an adoption application.

If you’re going to be in Maryland, contact Chocolate Chip Dalmation Assistance League by calling 301-434-1086 or e-mailing ccdal AT Comcast DOT net to set up a time to meet Katie and her friends. If you’re not near Maryland, check out PetFinder’s Shelter Center to find adoptable pets near you.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
