Meet Poppy, a 10-month-old, 46 pound, male Canaan Dog mix. He came to the SPCA of Texas on August 20 because his previous owner’s dog did not enjoy the company of other dogs. Naturally, he was disheartened, but he’s a brave boy and knows he’ll soon find his forever home. Around the shelter, he’s known for his sleek golden fur and dazzling good looks, if he does say so himself. He has the sweetest brown eyes, which always win him extra treats and petting. He’s in love with toys of any kind, but prefers ones he can chew on! He is a very social dog and loves making new friends with both canines and humans alike. He even has a playgroup with his friend, Snicker! As you might have guessed, he’s sweet, lovable and will melt your heart with his kisses. He’s learning how to walk more efficiently using a harness and he’s learning fast. He is a smart dog, and knows sit, stay and down on command! Poppy has been neutered, microchipped and received age-appropriate vaccinations. He knows that he is the total package. The only thing he’s missing to complete the puzzle is you! He hopes you have a great day at the shelter and that you make some room for him on the car ride home! #142610
Meet Mika, a 2-year-old, Domestic Shorthair mix cat. Her fur is white as snow, and she has striking ice-blue eyes. She’s quite the beauty, if she does say so herself. She was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on August 17 because her previous owner did not have enough time to spend with her. Now, she’s ready to find a new family to call her own. Not only is she gorgeous, she is a big sweetheart, too. She loves to be petted- she will rub her face on your hands and lean into you while you scratch her all over. Just make sure she sees you before you do so you don’t startle her- she must admit that she is deaf, so she can’t hear you coming. If you tap on something nearby, she can feel the vibrations and will know you are around. She’s been told that her meow can sound a bit goofy at times since she can’t hear herself or other kitties, but she thinks that just adds to her charm! She also loves playing with toys- especially ones she can chase and pounce on. Even though she is a very special and intriguing young lady, she doesn’t like to share her spotlight with other kitties- so she needs to go home with a family where she will be the only cat and get all of your love to herself. Mika has been spayed, microchipped and has received age-appropriate vaccinations, as well as flea/tick preventatives. What more could you ask for?! Come meet her today, and I’m sure you’ll fall in love with her lovely looks and quirky personality. You won’t want to leave without her! #128729
