Tyson may need to enroll in some of the classes that we offer at Animal Friends University. A natural people-pleaser, Tyson is eager to learn what you want him to and would love the time spent with you; his new lifetime companion.
It is recommended that Tyson be adopted by an active family with older children who has dog ownership experience.
If you are looking for a loyal exercise partner who has a big heart and plenty of love to go around, stop by and meet Tyson soon. Oh did we mention he is house trained? Stop by and meet him at Animal Friends in Pittsburgh today.
Any Coonhound fans out there? If so, you have to come in and meet Ace, a 4 year old Treeing Walker Coonhound. Ace greets everyone he meets with a happy “Woof!” and a goofy grin! His previous owners were moving and could not take him with them. However, they did mention that he seems to be housebroken, crate trained, and that he doesn’t chew! This awesome man previously lived with kids, and he would love to go home with a tiny human that he could call a friend. He loves everyone he meets except for cats – he hasn’t learned yet not to chase them. Because he is a young guy, he is energetic and will need a family willing to provide him with sufficient and appropriate exercise. He would love to hike, walk or jog with his new family. His two favorite things are treats and people! When he is presented with both humans and food, he runs after people with his raw hide hanging out of his mouth! Can you open your home to this wonderful boy? Stop in at Animal Friends in Pittsburgh – he cannot wait to meet you!
Celebrate your pooch with a Pup- Pie!
Don’t be ashamed, you want to spoil your pets rotten, right? It’s ok admit it, you’re not alone, we all do. Why shouldn’t we celebrate the best companion in our life? I recently did just that with my adopted Boston Terrier “Jasper”. Jasper was adopted on July 1st from the Western PA Humane Society, and on his papers I was able to figure out his birthdate. So to celebrate his 1st Birthday I wanted to give him something a little extra special. I headed over to my local pet store (Healthy Pet Products in Pittsburgh, PA) and picked out a Pup-Pie from the Lazy Dog Cookie Company. There are many “pies” to choose from, but I choose the “Happy Birthday” pie (it even comes with a little Happy Birthday Marker to place on top of the Pie) As a concerned pet owner over what I feed my dog, I knew this treat would be all natural ingredients as Healthy Pet Products only carries this type of food and treats. Sorry, but you won’t catch me buying pet treats made in China to feed my guy. Anyway, it was great Jasper LOVED it, and I had a blast making his special day all that much more fun for the BOTH of us. I also grabbed some “Pup-Squeaks” for him and yup, he gobbled those right up too. After posting the pic of him celebrating with his Pup-Pie on facebook I had tons of requests as to where I got that Birthday Pie treat. So I thought I’d share my story with you guys and fill you in on where you can get one to spoil your special companion with! Go ahead, spoil ’em rotten, they deserve it. If you do, take a pic and send it in to me here at email@example.com
Jet is handsome 3-year-old Havana rabbit. His foster family tells us that he is very calm and social and even lets people pick him up! He loves to snack and will gently take food from your hand. He lived with two dogs in foster care, and they made him a little anxious (understandably so!) but we don’t think an inter-species friendly pet is entirely out of the cards for this friendly guy. Ask an Adoption Counselor if he’d be a match for you! Just call Animal Friends today!
A wise poet once said, “Time spent with cats is never wasted.” Well, you’ll never waste time with Kabuki, a very mellow, non-demanding, gray and white domestic shorthair. This cat is low-maintenance and has a “go with the flow” attitude. Kabuki means a dramatic dance in Japanese, but trust us, he’s not about to start a melodramatic dance on you. He can be timid at first, but one way to get him to warm up to you is to offer him a nice scratch on his fuzzy head. So, if your taste in cat traits leans toward calm, cool, and even a bit meditative, then Kabuki is ready for you. Just come visit this cool cat at Animal Friends in Pittsburgh today!
