Meet Joshua, a friendly 16-month-old, 56 pound, red and white Shepherd mix. According to his previous owner, he is “full of energy” and “loves to play and be friendly.” He’s always eager to go walking and he is easy to walk. He will also sit on command and loves treats! He will sometimes jump, but if you pet him he will sit calmly and enjoy the love. You will also find his coat irresistible to touch because it is so very soft. His previous owner indicated that he is housebroken except for an occasional accident. After living in the shelter, it may take him a couple of weeks to remember all of the housetraining in his new adoptive home. With patience and positive reinforcement, he knows that he can adjust well to new housetraining rules. Joshua was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on April 18 because his previous owner did not have enough time during the day to care for him. He has been spayed, microchipped and has received his age-appropriate vaccinations. He has also been dewormed and has received Flea/Tick preventatives. Please come and meet Joshua. You might find an extraordinary best friend to take home! #139100
Meet Snickers, an adorable, friendly 18-month-old, shapely 13 pound calico girl. She’s wearing a white bib and has a little pink nose! Her breed is Domestic Shorthair mix. Her owner surrendered her to the SPCA of Texas on April 30 because they did not have time to give her the attention they wanted her to have. Now, she can be the newest member of your family. Snickers has been spayed, tested for FIV/FeLV (she’s negative), microchipped and has received age-appropriate vaccinations. She’s wishing for a home with regular playtimes, yummy food and lots of cuddles! Could that be you? Today is a good time to meet her. You’ll see just how sweet she is! #140802
