ALEXIS, N.C. --- Tri-County Animal Rescue Pet of the Week is this beautiful Chihuahua named Kaci. This little girl is 3 years old and weighs 10 pounds. Kaci has a lovely tan/white coat. The grooming for Kaci is very simple…bath and brushing. She will stay small as an adult. Kaci is spayed, current on vaccines and micro-chipped. Come on out…we will be looking for you.
Chihuahuas are comical, entertaining, and loyal little dogs. They are absolutely brimming with personality – often a quirky and eccentric personality unmatched by any other breed. Chihuahuas do seem to recognize and prefer their own breed, so it's a great idea to keep two of them. They keep each other company when you're gone, they play together, clean each other's ears (Chihuahuas can be obsessive ear-lickers!), and keep each other warm by snuggling together.
Chihuahuas adore warmth! They will seek out the tiniest sunspot in which to bask, and they tunnel under blankets and towels. You have to be careful whenever you sit down on your sofa or bed, as there could be a Chihuahua tucked under there!
If you want a dog that: is small and easy to carry, comes in several different coats and colors, is oh-so-funny and entertaining in quirky ways, is very loyal, travels well, doesn't need much exercise, LOVES warm sunny climates, usually has a long lifespan…..then a Chihuahua may be right for you!
PUPPY PET OF THE WEEK
Our featured puppy for this week is a Shih Tzu mix named Bella. She is 6 months old and weighs 14 pounds. Bella should not get any bigger. She has beautiful silky hair which only needs bath and brushing regularly. Bella is good with other dogs and loves people. She is a beautiful little girl that loves to be snuggled. Bella is current on vaccines, micro-chipped and has been spayed.
The Shih Tzu mix has long been a popular designer breed. Known for its adorable roundish face, this hybrid originated in the United States and is known to be quietly affectionate. Some of you might have a preference for certain colors when it comes to dogs and you’d be glad to know that the Shih Tzu mix does come in a variety of colors, including black, brown, cream or white, or a combination of those. Many dog lovers have a weakness for its adorable cute, floppy ears if it takes after its Shih Tzu parent. In addition, because of their adaptability and size, they also make good apartment dogs. Just remember though, some owners describe the Shih Tzu as a shy character if not properly given the chance to socialize and mingle with other humans or dogs. So take a walk in the park, and this way you’ll both get the exercise and interaction you need.
BIG DOG PET OF THE WEEK
The Tri-County Animal Rescue BIG DOG Pet of the Week is a Boxer mix named Sammy. Sammy is 6 years old and weighs only 30 pounds. He is a very sweet boy that will win your heart as soon as you meet him. Sammy is a very affectionate and well tempered dog, He has had no accidents in the house. Sammy loves the outdoors and hiked Crowders Mountain with ease. When excited he will jump and run in circles pouncing his feet in excitement. When walking he likes to grab the leash with his mouth and “walk you” in the direction he would like to go. He is very entertaining. Sammy would prefer to be an only dog with a fenced yard for exercise. Sammy has short hair so grooming is a bath and brushing. Do you have room for this sweet boy? Please….
Sammy is neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm negative and micro-chipped. Please give this sweet boy a chance to become part of your family! He will be looking for you this weekend.
If you are looking for an addition to your family, please come out and meet our adoptable pets this weekend. Many pets will be at the Gastonia PetSmart located at 3698 East Franklin Boulevard this Saturday noon to 6 p.m.
