What a special Christmas gift for a family to bring home a pet that is in need of its forever home. A gift of love, what could represent the season more?
The numbers of adoptable pets at Louisville’s Metro Animal Services has came down but more homeless pets still await their forever homes.
Here are this week’s featured adoptable pets.
Bella is a very pretty 1 year old female Vizsla/Beagle mix. She is a social girl who loves people and other dogs to play with. Bella does well on a leash and with a little fine tuning would do great. Bella is spayed and ready to be a part of your family. If you are interested in little Bella then have her Pet ID # A477794 ready when contacting Metro Animal Services about her.
Blair is a 6 year old spayed female Border Collie mix. If you like older dogs then this sweet girl with her gentle eyes would love to be in a home. It is harder for these older doggies to get homes but they appreciate getting those homes more since they usually have to wait longer for them. If you think this sweet girl would make the devoted companion you want then have her Pet ID # A479992 ready when contacting Metro Animal Services about her.
Bo is a Shetland Sheepdog/Sheltie whose coat is in need of a good grooming, then his beauty will shine through. Aficionados of Shetland Sheepdogs/Shelties would love Bo. Can you give him the home he so deserves? If so have Bo’s Pet ID # A481322 ready when contacting Metro Animal Services about him.
Bea is a 3 year old female Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler. She needs a job. She has the herding instinct so if you have a job for this girl or can play with her keeping her active then she would make for a good companion. She is not a couch potato as herding dogs are smart and need some kind of interaction. If you have the time and place for Miss Bea in your heart then have her Pet ID # A478891 handy when contacting Metro Animal Services.
Tank is a neutered 3 year old Pit Bull mix who does get along with other dogs. Tank needs someone who understands the Pit Bull breed’s devotion to their humans when they have not been mistreated. Someone who will not judge all dogs of this breed as bad doggies as they are not. Dogs of pit bull breeding adopted from Metro Animal Services are eligible for free obedience training at Slugger City Bully Buddies . If you can give Tank the home he deserves then have his Pet ID # A424061.
Sherman is a neutered adult Pit Bull doggie. He needs his understanding owner, as all Pit Bulls do. Pit Bulls are well known for their devotion to their humans when they have not been mistreated. Pit Bulls adopted from Metro Animal Services are eligible for free dog obedience training at Slugger City Bully Buddies . If you are a responsible Pit Bull enthusiast willing to give Sherman a chance at happiness please have his Pet ID # A472881 ready when contacting Metro Animal Services.
Maximus is a neutered male Boxer mix who is affectionate. He loves to give you kisses and more kisses. Want a doggie who will adore you then this guy is definitely it. He will need work on the leash as he can be a bit strong but since he is smart that won’t take long with regular work. If you think this big pretty black doggie with those pretty eyes is for you then have his Pet ID # A478335 ready when contacting Metro Animal Services about him.
Leigha is an 8 year old Welsh Corgi mix, spayed, very dignified, and calm lady. If you want a quiet dog to keep you company then Miss Leigha is it. It is harder for older dogs to get adopted but this girl is healthy and has many more years to give her love to you. She gets along with other dogs but would rather be in a home of her very own and is growing weary of waiting. If you think this gal would fit into your home then have her Pet ID # A468701 when contacting Metro Animal Services about her.
Viv is a very pretty 4 year old adult female kittie. She came to the shelter with her litter of kittens but is now spayed. She was a very good mother and raised them up right and they were all adopted but now she deserves her loving forever home. Viv likes being the only cat and does not like being chased around by young children so a older family is best. She still loves to play with you and cat toys. If you think Viv will fit into your life style then have her Pet ID # A459316 when contacting Metro Animal Services about her. Viv represents the many adult cat and kittens waiting at the shelter for homes.
