Meet Fred, a 44-pound Labrador mix with a gorgeous black coat, beautiful eyes and the most adorable face you’ve ever seen. He’s just under 2-years-old and came to the SPCA of Texas on January 23 because the other dog in his home was not fond of him. He is very kind, gentle and really enjoys receiving attention! Because he’s a young pooch, he is energetic and like to play. If you enjoy going for walks, you will be perfect for each other because he enjoys them too. While in the shelter, the staff and volunteers have been continuing his loose-leash training. He’s really hoping to find my forever family so that I have someone I can snuggle and love. His previous owner noted that he is housebroken, but since being in the shelter, he might need a little refresher. He is also working on my crate-training and if you keep a few treats in your pocket, he’s sure to get this crate-training thing down quickly! He has been neutered, microchipped and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. #138250
Meet Marble, a 7-year-old female calico cat with a very unique fur coat. She is mostly tabby orange with a light orange mask around her eyes and the rest of her face is white with a pink nose with tiny black spots. She’s so cute! A few vertical black splotches on her side complete my fashion statement! She is a Domestic Shorthair mix and weigh 8 pounds. She is a quiet lady with a sweet and mellow personality. She has been spayed, tested for FIV/FeLV (she’s negative), microchipped, received dental treatment and age-appropriate vaccinations. You can even set her adoption fee! She’s been rolling along waiting to move to her new home and family where she can give lots of kisses and show-off her loving personality and unique fur markings. #138611
