Allow me to introduce everyone’s favorite playmate, Buddy! His name suites him perfectly because he is a buddy to everyone he meets. Buddy is about 18 months old, so he is still a playful, happy-go-lucky pup. He’s a Labrador Retriever mix with a handsome chocolate fur coat with a white blaze down his chest. Like his fellow Labs, Buddy is a social boy who loves meeting new people, and even other dogs, kids and even cats. He’s extremely smart, and he is already obedience trained, housetrained and he’s brushing up on his leash walking skills too. He is fully grown at 40 pounds so he is the perfect size for many households. Buddy is heartworm positive, but his treatments are FREE to his new family at a Metroplex-area VCA Animal Hospital after he’s adopted. This will provide the best total care for heartworm positive dogs like Buddy in treatment, as they’ll have access to emergency care and overnight stays if necessary. He’s also a V.I.P. (Very Important Pet) because I’ve been waiting for my new, loving family for more than 30 days, and I have a special adoption price of $50! #12493474
Meow! Hello friends, her name is Sophie, and she’s a pretty, little Domestic Shorthair kitty who is eight years old. She may be considered a senior citizen around here, but we think she’s in her prime! She was brought to the SPCA of Texas on April 12 because her owners said they didn`t have time to care for her anymore. But really, she’s no trouble at all. Sophie is already housetrained, litter trained, and she gets along well with kids and adults. She’s a quiet, reserved girl, but she does like attention when you want a buddy by your side. She’s a couch potato and she loves to take cat naps, so maybe you can cuddle up during these warm summer days. Sophie hopes you come see her soon! She’s also a V.I.P. (Very Important Pet) because she’s been waiting for her new, loving family for more than 30 days, and she has a special adoption price of $50! #12869028
