SPCA Pet Adoption, November 16, 2017
From previous features: Leopard, Mojo, Wilbur and Oreo are still waiting for their forever homes.
Here is this week’s dog from McKinney: Lady
Meet Lady, a 6-year-old, black and brown merle Catahoula mix weighing 41-pounds. She was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on October 14 to search for a new family. She is pretty shy at first, but once she gets to know you, she is a total love! She’ll sit in your lap, nuzzle up and shower you with kisses. She adores head scratches, and will push her head into your hand to ask for more. She’s not a fan of loud noises, strangers or too much activity, so she would do best in a home without children under 10. She can be picky about her dog friends, so if you have another dog at home, please bring them to meet her to make sure they get along. She walks well on her leash, is housetrained and is great at playing fetch. She’s a well-mannered girl looking for a calm home where she can cuddle up and share her love. If you’re looking for a sweet girl to hang out with, she’s the one for you! Lady has been spayed, microchipped and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. Come meet this lovely Lady today! #111503
Still waiting for a home: Leopard
Meet Leopard, a sweet-as-pie 2 ½-year-old Labrador Retriever mix weighing 45-pounds. She came to the SPCA of Texas on August 23 when she was surrendered to an Animal Cruelty Investigator because her previous owner could not properly care for her. She hasn’t had the easiest life so far, but she sure is living it up now! She is very friendly, playful and affectionate to everyone she meets. She loves to play, especially with people! Her favorite game is tag – you’re it! She’ll spin around in circles as you chase her and will tag you with a kiss. Her joyful energy and bubbly personality bring smiles to all, just one visit with her is sure to make your day. She gets along with other dogs, so if you have any other canines at home, bring them to meet her to see if they make a good match. She’d most likely do well with kids of all ages – as long as they’re willing to give her lots of attention! She is heartworm positive, but thanks to generous donors, her treatments will be FREE at any Metroplex-area VCA Animal Hospital once she’s adopted. Come meet this perfect pet today and make sure you’re ready to play!
Still waiting for a home: Mojo
Still waiting for a home: Wilbur
Meet Wilbur, a fun-loving, 4-year-old, male Cane Corso mix weighing 72-pounds. This hunky guy is a real handsome fellow, with a silvery blue coat and a winning smile – just one look at him, and you won’t be able to resist giving him attention. He came to the SPCA of Texas in May when he was rescued by an Animal Cruelty Investigator. He was adopted, but later returned due to unrealistic expectations at no fault of his own. Now, he’s hoping to find the perfect family to take him home. He is very energetic, loves being outside, going for walks and playing with toys. He takes his playing pretty seriously, so he may do best in a home without small children or pets so he doesn’t accidentally hurt someone with his big, goofy self. Since being in the shelter, he has been working on learning some new skills like walking well on a leash, having good doggie manners and performing commands for treats. Because of his unknown past and high energy, he’ll need a patient family who will be willing to help him become the best dog he can be – he knows he can do it! If you’re looking for a running buddy, hiking partner or friend to play fetch with, he’s the guy for you!! If you have another large dog at home, you can bring them to meet him and see if they make a good match. Wilbur has been neutered, microchipped and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. Come meet him today, and he’ll be sure to show you a great time! #154325
Still Waiting for a Home: Oreo
Meet Oreo, a 6-year-old, mostly black Shepherd mix weighing 61-pounds. He came to the SPCA of Texas on July 7 through a compliance rescue case. When the SPCA of Texas' Animal Cruelty Investigators found him, he was scared and in terrible shape. He has beautiful blue and brown eyes and tiny flecks of grey and white on his face, giving him a cookies and cream coloring. While his skin issues have been treated, he is still missing fur and naked in a lot of places, but he’s working on growing his hair back. Don't laugh, according to Chinese crested dogs, this is totally a thing! He can be a bit barky at the shelter, but it is just his way of asking for attention, as he is learning that people equal great things like treats, squeaky voices and taking him outside to play! He can be a little shy when it comes to handling, but he warms up quickly. He loves other dogs, so he would make a lovely companion for dogs and humans alike for someone that is willing to offer him time and patience. Oreo has been neutered, microchipped and is current on all age-appropriate vaccinations. He is heartworm positive, but thanks to generous donors, his treatments will be FREE at any Metroplex-area VCA Animal Hospital. Come meet him today! #155730
