Pet of the Week

Lacey

There is an urgent need at the Scituate Animal Shelter right now. Meet Lacey! Lacey is an 11-year-old Pit Bull mix whose owners could not properly take care of her. Once Lacey is settled into her new home, she’ll need to have surgery for a large and possibly cancerous mammary mass. Although her chest X-rays are clear, she is 11 years old and could have the cancer return. Lacey really needs someone ready to give her some quality time out of a shelter and in a home.  Lacey is an absolute doll. She walks well on a leash and is friendly to everyone. She loves children! She really just wants to chase tennis balls or snuggle into a warm bed. She isn’t comfortable around other dogs but will defer to cats. There is no adoption fee for Lacey…she needs a comfortable foster or adoptive home to spend her remaining days.

Joey

Meet Joey! This adorable little guy is 12 years old and weighs around 6 lbs. His owner was no longer able to care for Joey and her daughter brought him to a local shelter. The shelter contacted Yorkies Inc to see if they could take him which of course they said yes. Joey will need work on house training, as it seems to have gone to the wayside due to his owners illness so he will need to be re-trained. He is, however, already making good progress in this area in his foster home. Joey enjoys going outside to go potty and just sniff around. Joey had bladder stones removed over a year ago and is on a special urinary diet which he loves. When he went in for his dental we had x-rays done to make sure he did not have any stones which he didn’t. Joey will give his foster parents kisses but only likes to be picked up when he wants, but is warming up more each day. Joey is fine with other small dogs in the house, but is not a fan of cats. Visit https://www.yorkiesinc.com to learn more about the adoption process and Joey!

Hank1

Say hi to Hank! Hank is a large, beautiful medium hair kitty currently residing with our friends at the Standish Humane Society in Duxbury. Hank loves to be with people, he is not shy at all, but sometimes he gets over stimulated & can get mouthy so he would do best in a home with no other cats and no small children. Hank’s perfect home is with a human that will play with string toys & laser lights to Hank’s content! If you’re interested in learning more about Hank, or meeting Hank in person, email standishhumane@comcast.net or call 781.834.4663.

Toby

 

Say hello to Toby! Toby has been at the Quincy Animal Shelter for so long that some visitors think of Toby as the Mascot for QAS.  But to the contrary Toby is still looking for his forever home. We don’t know why Toby keeps getting over looked for adoption. He was a little scared when he first came in and mis-behaved and hissed and swatted a little. So maybe he got a bad rap. But that was then, and this is now. Today, Toby is a really chill guy. He’s quite curious and enjoy watching all the goings on at the shelter. He has some favorite volunteers and he loves it when they come inside his room to visit with him and let him sit on their lap.  Toby has special food that he eats that keeps him happy and healthy.  And looks…boy Toby is one handsome cat with his tuxedo fluff! Much as he would miss his folks at QAS Toby would really like a human and home to call his own.  If you are looking for a cat to keep you company, watch and maybe participate in your daily routine, and sit or on you while you read or watch TV them Toby is your guy.  Toby is only 10 years old and still playful, too. If he sounds like the cat for you, please come in and sit with Toby for a while and give him a chance to get to know you.  You won’t be sorry.  Toby’s paws are crossed hoping to meet you! Visit http://quincyanimalshelter.org or email info@quincyanimalshelter.org  Phone: 617-376-1349.

Max

Meet Max! Max is a neutered male, orange tabby, about 5 years old. He is very affectionate, talkative and playful, especially when there is catnip involved. He craves lots of attention.
 
Max was abandoned, then taken care of by a kind family with 7 cats of their own. When they had to move, it was obvious their cats would not accept him into the group. Wanting the best home possible for him, he was surrendered to the Marshfield Animal Shelter.
 
Max will do best in a home with another cat that is passive and sweet or even as an only pet.
 
If you are interested in Max, please email friendsofthemarshfieldshelter@yahoo.com or send a message  through Facebook @FriendsofMarshfieldAnimalShelter.

Rosie

Meet Rosie! Rosie is a 4 year old spayed female pit bull terrier.  She has been in a number of homes already through no fault of her own and our friends at Milton Animal League Animal Shelter want to help her find her forever home! Rosie is a sweet dog who adores people! She barks when she sees other dogs but with some training and positive exposure she may be okay with her fellow canines. She would love an adult home to help her de-stress from shelter life, with humans who would assure her that she won’t be abandoned again. Contact Milton Animal League Animal Shelter via email info@miltonanimalleague.org or phone to learn more about Rosie: 617.698.0413.

JuneClover

 

Since Logan was adopted the morning we featured him we’re going to feature a few other kitties from Standish Humane Society in Duxbury! Let’s introduce you to Clover and June.  June (grey tabby)  is very very shy but sweet as can be.  She and her side kick Clover (female black and white) were found outside as kittens and have been with a foster Mom for a couple of months now.  Their Foster Mom had to travel abroad so the kittens came into Standish Shelter home.  The hope is the girls would be adopted together since June would not do well if Clover was not around.  They are not siblings but they cuddle and wash each other and sleep together.  June is about four months old and Clover is about five months old.  Clover is very social and loves people.  June is not aggressive in the least, just needs some time to warm up so she is not hiding or shy.  Both of these beautiful girls are spayed and healthy with all vaccinations completed.  Standish Humane is offering a reduced rate to get them adopted together.  Applications for their adoption can be completed on line at http://standishhumane.org

LOGAN HAS BEEN ADOPTED!

Meet Logan!  Logan was a lost kitty until he found his way to the home of the shelter director.  It’s like he knew the best place to go to be rescued.  Logan is a handsome, lovable, calm boy about a year old.  Logan has a “crumpled” ear and all the volunteers say that makes Logan even more handsome!   Please make a date to meet Logan soon at Standish Humane Society in Duxbury!

Rocco

This is Rocco. Rocco was brought to the Scituate Animal Shelter because his family didn’t have time for him anymore.  Rocco has lived with a cat and seems to like other dogs. He is 9 and suffers from joint issues that he is on medication for.  As a result, he is a slow mover and can’t go for long walks although he enjoys short walks. He is on a joint supplement and an anti-inflammatory medication for his arthritis but is otherwise in great health! He does love to fetch tennis balls as long as you don’t throw them too far from him (he would try for it but it would be tough for him).   He has been at the shelter a long time, some people may overlook him because he’s a pit bull that looks “scary” – his ears were cut to make him look tough – but he extremely sweet and affectionate with everyone.Rocco is happy being by your side, wherever you are. He is house-trained and nothing but sweet. Rocco is looking for a foster or adoptive home.

If you’re interested in meeting Rocco, please stop by the shelter during open hours: Tuesday 12-6, Wednesday and Thursday 2-5, and Saturday 10-3. There’s no need to make an appointment, but we do recommend checking the website before your visit as open hours are subject to change.

Ginny

 

Meet Ginny, Hull Seaside Animal Rescue’s friendly tortie. Her coat is a collage of brown, tan and black, and she has beautiful green eyes. She is about 3 years of age and just loves people. She will play for long periods of time and especially enjoys  a good string toy. Ginny is not fond of other cats, probably because she wants all the attention! For this reason, she would need to be an only cat. It is possible she would get along with a dog, if such a family wanted to adopt her. She is really a sweetheart, and deserves a loving home where she can thrive and share her playful nature.

Come meet Ginny, as well as the other cats and kittens we have available for adoption, by visiting us online at www.hsar.org, or by visiting the shelter at 487 Nantasket Avenue, Hull.  Open hours are Monday nights, 6:30-7:30, and Saturdays, 2-3 p.m. If these times are not convenient for you, special appointments can be made by calling the adoption coordinator, at 781-534-4902.

Hull Seaside Animal Rescue’s annual Fall yard sale coming up on Saturday, September 22nd from 9am-3pm. Come buy something for yourself and support the cause of helping homeless cats and kittens. The largest cost in running the shelter last year was for veterinary care. Your support helps keep the residents happy and healthy.

Drop Off Times:
Thurs. Sept. 20: 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Pearl3

Meet Pearl! Pearl is a petite 13+ year-old gray and cream tabby who enjoys human attention, on her own terms…our friends at Hull Seaside Animal Rescue call Pearl a sassy senior, and that just adds to her charm. She is an independent girl with a wonderful spirit. Pearl is a volunteer favorite who greets the volunteers at the door and follows them around as they do their work in the shelter.  

Pearl would make a great “roommate” and sidekick. Even though she can be a bit grumpy at times (aren’t we all), she will greet you at the door, follow you around when she’s not napping, provide love, and be a loyal friend. She is looking for a second chance at a home of her own where she can live out her wonderful golden years like the princess she knows she is. 

She will be a perfect fit for someone who would like a buddy to keep them company but who isn’t necessarily looking for a bonafide lap cat.  

Her favorite hobbies include napping, following her people around, finding anything and everything to curl up on and lounge, being brushed when she’s in the mood, and LASER LIGHTS (she LOVES them and she chases that laser light around like she’s a kitten). 

Pearl is a special girl who is sure to bring a little light into your home. If you are interested in adopting, or perhaps fostering, Pearl, you can learn more about her at Hull Seaside Animal Rescue’s open hours on Monday evenings from 6:300 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. and Saturday afternoons from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

If these times don’t work for you, you can also call or email Judy, the Adoption Coordinator, at 781-534-4902 or jjfahey@verizon.net.

Visit www.hsar.org for directions and to learn more about Hull Seaside Animal Rescue. And while you’re there you MUST click on Pearl’s video to get even more of a glimpse of her personality!

Leo 1

Meet Leopold, Leo for short. Leo is a young boy (around 1) with good energy. He’s quite the lover boy when it comes to his peeps! In the hot weather, if you have a pool, he’ll be there all day or a hose will do too! Leo has doing well with his obedience training. Since he was never socialized with other animals, he’s learning he doesn’t need to get so excited when he is near humans! Are you a swimmer? Do you want a loving boy to be your one and only? If you answered yes head to the Quincy Animal Shelter to meet Leo – you might be a match made in heaven! Questions? You can email k9@quincyanimalshelter.org!

JJ

This is a re-post to help little JJ find her forever home! JJ is a tiny 4lb female Yorkie with a lot of personality. She is 6 years old and loves being the center of attention, and if she isn’t the center she will let you know! Our friends at Yorkies, Inc., say JJ loves being held up high and close to you, sleeping on the couch and cuddling in bed. She wants to be wherever you are. She loves to go for walks and being in the car. While she hasn’t shown any interest in playing with toys or the other dogs in her foster house she still has a spunky personality. She would do best with someone home that would love a companion and someone used to the Yorkie personality. She can be skittish and nervous in new situations and doesn’t like quick movements, especially when attempting to pick her up -she has snapped when this happens, but she loves to be held and doted on. JJ still needs to go to the vets and then she will be ready for her new home. If you would like to be considered for JJ please submit an application on the Yorkies, Inc. website HERE. Thank you!

Meet a few of the felines from the Scituate Animal Shelter!

 

Zelda

This adorable tuxedo cat is Zelda! She is an adult cat who is very upset about being at the shelter. She has been feeling both shy and sassy. She needs a patient, loving home that is willing to give her a chance to come out of her shell and be her best self. She would do best in a home with no other pets, and would do well with a very patient human to help her with her transition.

Carmella

 

And also, here is Carmella, a beautiful tortoiseshell adult cat. Carmella is an 8 year old female, she’s quite social and she has a bit of a sassy side. Carmella loves to be around people, but on her terms. She would do best in a home without young children as she does not like to be picked up and can get over stimulated with too much petting. 

 

If you’re interested in meeting Zelda or Carmella please stop by during the Scituate Animal Shelter’s open hours: Tuesday 12-6, Wednesday and Thursday 2-5, and Saturday 10-3. There’s no need to make an appointment, but they do recommend checking the website before your visit as open hours are subject to change.

Killian loves love – he rolls over and purrs and kneads his paws while you pet him.  He wants so badly to be with a human and does not like being left alone so someone around or home a lot would be a good fit.

Meet Lola! 

“My pretty face doesn’t belong in a shelter!” Meet Lola, a 3 year old little staffie girl currently residing with her friends at the Quincy Animal Shelter. She unfortunately was not given the chance to be a loving mom to her newborn puppies because her former owner discarded her shortly after she gave birth. Lola was delivered to Quincy as a stray and the wonderful staff and volunteers have helped her become a healthy weight while also teaching her to trust them. She is a very sweet little girl who couldn’t be more content hanging outside with her friends there at the shelter while chewing on a ball. She has a sweet personality and deserves a home where she can experience nothing but love and bond with her new owners. If you have any questions about Lola please email k9@quincyanimalshelter.org.

Basil2

Meet Basil! Basil is auditioning to be the love of your life! He’s a handsome, sleek and shiny 3 yr old boy who somehow got lost and ended up living the rough life of a street cat. He’s a gentle soul, and so grateful someone found his and brought him to our friends at Standish Humane Society.

Basil is very sweet, quiet and laid back. He can be a bit shy when he meets a new person, but if you stroke or brush his soft fur, he will warm right up to you. Basil would be the ideal pet for a family who lives a quiet lifestyle. He loves being petted and he’s a good lap warmer. He doesn’t engage much in the rough and tumble play some cats love – he really prefers sitting on a sofa watching television with you or snuggling up in a good lap.

When Basil had his check-up at Standish, the vet discovered a heart murmur. The cardiologist who evaluated his echocardiogram and general health said that he doesn’t need to be on any medication right now, and might never be. The cardiologist did say that Basil should have some baseline blood tests and a chest x-ray for future reference, and Standish has agreed to pay for that. Also, if Basil ever needs medical attention for his heart murmur, Standish will assist in paying the medical costs to keep Basil’s heart in the best condition possible. Basil would love to meet you! We know he will bring you much love and joy!

Lady

 

If Lady looks familiar to you, it’s because it wasn’t that long ago that we featured her as our pet of the week. In fact, our friends at Scituate Animal Shelter reported to us that she had been adopted, but unfortunately she was returned to the shelter because of her separation anxiety. She’d really do best in a home where she is not left alone very long. Lady is a smart, athletic 3-year-old German Shepherd mix who LOVES people. She knows a number of commands, including down, stay, come, and shake, and she would excel in any dog sport. 

Because of her energy and intelligence, this sweet Lady needs a family that will keep her busy and challenged. Any children she may share a home with should be at least 12 years old.

Lady can be reactive on leash, so she would do well as the only pet in the household. However, since she does enjoy the company of some dogs, she may also thrive in a home with an experienced dog owner who knows to separate her from other dogs in these situations. She loves to go on walks, she loves car rides and she loves to sit in people’s laps even though she’s a large dog! 

If you’re interested in meeting Lady, please stop by during Scituate Animal Shelter’s open hours: Tuesday 12-6, Wednesday and Thursday 2-5, and Saturday 10-3. There’s no need to make an appointment, but they do recommend checking the website before your visit as open hours are subject to change.

Daisey

Meet Daisy! This sweet, beautiful little female Yorkie is 7 years old and weighs 6 lbs and has the most expressive eyes! Our friends at Yorkies, Inc. say she loves everyone and does well with other small dogs. She is trained to use a pee pad or will go outside if taken out regularly. She loves attention from people and likes to dance on her hind legs. She travels well in her carseat or crate in a car but isn’t a fan of being crated at home. She likes to get up on the sofa to snuggle while you watch TV. She has been fully vetted and is healthy. If interested in adopting please submit an application: http://www.yorkiesinc.com/adopt/adoptpolicies.html 

Daisy came in with Ava below and would do well with her if looking for a bonded pair.

Hi, Lucky!

lucky

Lucky is a handsome male cat, all black with a white chest – dressed in his tux and ready to go home with you! Our friends at the Quincy Animal Shelter have been taking great care of Lucky, but it’s time for Lucky to be with his forever family. This 12-year-old gentleman is a polydactyl which is Greek for “many digits”, i.e. he has extra toes! Come by and meet him, and perhaps you’ll be the lucky person to take him home!

Meet Timothea!

timothea

This sweet girl was found in a resident’s window well during one of the cold spells in January. Thankfully the very kind family took her in until our friends at Milton Animal Control’s Animal Shelter could care for her. Her age is estimated at 15 or more years old. She has some vision and hearing loss and was emaciated when she was found, so it is a miracle she survived. We would love to help our friends at the Milton Animal Shelter find a warm spot for her to live out her final days, months, or hopefully years! She loves attention and petting and if she sees or hears you enter the room, she will be quite vocal until you pet her.


If you would like to give Timothea that special home, please call the Milton Animal Shelter in Milton at 617.698. 0413. P.S. Check out those paws!

Meet Dolly!

Dolly

***UPDATE: DOLLY has been adopted!!!!! Yay, Dolly!

Dolly is a 10-month-old lab/possibly, Ridgeback mix, a beautiful red/orange/chestnut color. She is sweet and loving with a very playful personality! Dolly gets along wonderfully with both dogs and cats. Because of her age, volunteers at the Friends of Plymouth Pound are still working on her house training. She would absolutely benefit from a fenced yard, too, a minimum of 5 feet is recommended. Dolly is crate trained if only left for short periods. Lovely Dolly can be seen at the Kingston Animal Shelter on Evergreen Steet on Saturdays  but if you’d like more information about Dolly please email Gayle [GFitz0204@aol.com]. You can also download a dog adoption form right from the Friends of Plymouth Pound website: friendsplymouthpound.org

Lady

 

Say hi to Lady! Lady is a smart, athletic 3-year-old German Shepherd mix who LOVES people and other dogs. She knows a number of commands, including down, stay, come, and shake, and she would likely excel in any dog sport. Lady is currently residing with the amazing team at Scituate Animal Shelter

Because of her energy and intelligence, this sweet Lady needs a family that will keep her busy and challenged. Any children she may share a home with should be at least 12 years old.

Lady can be reactive on leash and with food, so she would do well as the only pet in the household. However, since she does enjoy the company of other dogs, she may also thrive in a home with an experienced dog owner who knows to separate her from other dogs in these situations. She loves to go on walks, she loves car rides and she loves to sit in people’s laps even though she’s a large dog! 

If you’re interested in meeting Lady, please stop by during Scituate Animal Shelter’s open hours: Tuesday 12-6, Wednesday and Thursday 2-5, and Saturday 10-3. There’s no need to make an appointment, but they do recommend checking the website before your visit as open hours are subject to change.

720_Ollie032018

Say hi to Ollie, a two-year old cat looking for a special home to call his own. Ollie is currently residing with the folks at Standish Humane Society in Duxbury who tell us that he is very playful, loving, and sweet. Ollie will make a great companion for someone who wants a handsome orange boy cat who has come a long way since his rough start in life and is looking forward to a fresh start in a forever home

Recently on a cold, bitter night, good Samaritans found Ollie outside and they took him in. They gave him a warm place to sleep and fed him. Had they not helped Ollie, he probably would not have survived. They could not keep Ollie, but they brought him to Standish. He was in heaven. He had a warm cozy room, he did not have to fight for his daily food, and he had human playmates they call volunteers.

Ollie can be a little testy when he is tired of playing or being petted, so he needs an understanding home where the people can read his body language. He is in no way mean, he just gets tired sometimes, and he makes it clear that he just wants to rest. 

Our friends at Standish say Ollie needs to be the only cat in his new home. When Standish had Ollie checked by a veterinarian, they discovered he is FIV+. Most cats with the FIV virus live a normal life, and FIV can only be transferred from one cat to another by an exchange of blood. Because Ollie could nip another cat when he’s tired or annoyed, it will be best for him to live in a home without other cats. Ollie hasn’t met many dogs, but he could live with a dog, because FIV cannot be transmitted to anyone other than a cat. You can read about FIV here so you will feel secure adopting an FIV+ cat like Ollie:

https://bestfriends.org/resources/fiv-cats-faqs-feline-immunodeficiency-virus-information

Ollie wants a chance to live a full, long, and happy life with people he loves. He is looking for a very special home where he will be welcome. He would love to get a chance to get to know you and show you what a great addition to your family he would be.

For a chance to meet Ollie, visit Standish Human Society or email standishhumane@comcast.net!

Tempri&Crouton

Meet Tempi and Crouton! These two adorable Long Haired Chihuahua puppies are looking for a home together with the help of our friends from Yorkies, Inc.! They are litter mates born in June and have been together ever since. Tempi is the female tri color black, white and tan and Crouton the male is a cream sable. They both weigh about 2lbs each. They are healthy and completely vetted including neuter/spay all vaccines and micro chipped. They are pee pad trained and are friendly, playful, and not at all barkers. Their breeder has retired and these two were part of her last litter. Because of their size they will not be placed in homes with children or large dogs regardless of their behavior. Our friends at Yorkies, Inc. say they will only separate Crouton and Tempi if the home has another playful small dog. If interested in these two please submit an application via the Yorkies, Inc. website: http://www.yorkiesinc.com/adopt/adoptpolicies.php

Hello, Moo!

 

moo

Say hello to Moo!! Moo is a friendly 8-month-old Pit Bull mix puppy who is eager to learn new things. He’s currently residing at the Scituate Animal Shelter and he’d love to meet you! Moo loves to play fetch and is extremely food-motivated. Moo needs a home where he can get a lot of exercise and training – he loves to chase tennis balls and chew them up! He is very strong and doesn’t know his own strength, so he would do best in a home with adults or older teens (16+). He should not live with cats or other small animals because he would chase them! In his very short life Moo has been bounced around quite a bit. He was adopted from another shelter for 3 whole days by folks who didn’t really understand what owning a dog meant. We’re making it our mission to help Moo find his forever home with his forever humans! Can you please help spread the word about Moo?

If you’re interested in meeting Moo, please stop by the Scituate Animal Shelter during their open hours: Tuesday 12-6, Wednesday and Thursday 2-5, and Saturday 10-3. There’s no need to make an appointment, but we do recommend checking our website before your visit as open hours are subject to change.

Say hello to Grayson!

gray

****UPDATE: Grayson has been adopted!!!! 2/26/18

This adorable bunny is under a year old and very shy and scared at the moment. He had been living outside ‘on the streets’ for a very long time and was rescued and brought to our friends at the Scituate Animal Shelter (thankfully) the night before the recent blizzard.  

Our friends at the shelter are working on litter box training for Grayson. Grayson is a young Jersey Wooly mix that’s brown and white in color. 

The adoption fee is $100 which includes his spay, nail trim and exam. If you’re interested in adopting Grayson, please email us a photo of where you would plan to keep him. Please note, the shelter recommends a baby-gated area with a washable floor versus a traditional cage. This allows rabbits room to hop around so that they can best learn to use a litter box.  

Please send inquiries and photos to ashleydavis@scituteanimalshelter.org.

Say hello to Angie!

angie

 

Angie is a big girl with great personality. She likes to hang out with volunteers at Hull Seaside Animal Rescue and other cats. She lived for a short time with a foster family who loved her so much. Angie would make a great addition to a family with or without other cats. As long as Angie has space to explore and a human to hang out with, she will be happy.

Angie has not lived with children so would be a good fit for a couple or individual adopter. She is in a room with other cats and does fine with them, but would love to be the center of attention in her forever home.

 

If you have questions about Angie, you can call Hull Seaside Animal Rescue’s Adoption Coordinator, Judy, at 781-534-4902.

Phoebe

***UPDATE 2/2/18 – Phoebe has been adopted!! Happy new life, Phoebe!!

Meet Phoebe! Phoebe is a 9-year-old female cat and white as the driven snow. A year ago she spent the holidays with her own person, and they loved each other dearly. Phoebe’s human trained her to be a lap cat, and she did her job well. But then things changed when Phoebe’s human went into a nursing home and she was brought to Standish Humane Society in April of 2017 to find a new home. Phoebe and her human loved the holiday season, and she really missed being in her loving arms this Christmas.

At Standish, Phoebe is one of the first cats any adopter sees when visiting. When potential adopters see her and hear her sweet little meow beckoning them to play with her, they fall in love. Whenever a volunteer comes into her room, her little pat on the volunteer’s hand means that she want to be petted. She loves laps, loves to be stroked, and she absolutely loves the volunteers at Standish Humane Society.

You might wonder why a cat so beautiful in both looks and personality has been at Standish so long without being adopted. It is not because no one has been interested. They start asking about adopting her, but then Phoebe’s world is broken all over again. Phoebe has diabetes and requires insulin shots twice a day. When adopters hear that, they quickly move on to look at other cats.

Her diabetes is not really a problem because she is so good about getting her shots. She’s so well behaved, and she takes her shots without complaint. It takes only a few seconds twice a day. Phoebe’s new forever family would not even have to pay for her diabetes care. The amazing folks at Standish Humane Society will take care of the expenses for her insulin and the veterinary bills related to her diabetes for the rest of her life.

Phoebe does not get along with other cats so best to be in a home as the one and only.

You can call Standish Humane Society at 781.834.4663 or visit their website to apply to adopt Phoebe: http://standishhumane.org/adoptions.html

Pearl

This girl will absolutely make you smile! She’s 2 1/2 years old, about 40 lbs and a mixed breed. Pearl is currently residing with the Milton Animal League Animal Shelter as she waits for her forever home. Pearl has some pretty unique features. She has one blue eye and and brown eye. She was also born with a lower jaw that is a lot shorter than her upper jaw. This means it takes her a little longer to eat her meals, and picking up toys can be a challenge. But that’s ok! Pearl is up for the challenge. Her small jaw also means her tongue hangs out of her mouth in a totally adorable and photo-worthy way – Pearl needs her own instagram account she is just so darn cute! Pearl is very energetic and LOVES to play. She’s a super-sweet and unique girl who will make a great addition to someone’s family! If you’d like to learn more, or meet Pearl, call 617.698.0413.
