Meet Teddy, a stunning white and red Blue Heeler mix. He is 2-years-old and weighs 37 pounds. Did you happen to notice his eyes? They are so blue that they are almost clear. You can practically see right through them into his heart. Teddy is a friendly and sweet fellow that just wants a family to love. He came to the SPCA of Texas on September 29 because the original dog in his home did not like him. That’s ok; Teddy knows he will find his new family soon! He is a happy-go-lucky guy and he always seem to have a smile on his face. While he is playful and loves to run fast, he also really enjoys being a couch potato with you. Let’s face it – if he’s with his people, he’s happy. Teddy adores attention from people and is friendly with everyone – humans and dogs. He enjoys going for walks and car rides, too, so if you need a traveling companion, he’s your guy. He is completely housebroken, but might need a gentle refresher after being in the shelter environment. Are you ready for more good news? He is also crate-trained! He has been neutered, microchipped and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. So what do you say, are you ready for your own sweet Teddy bear? Come by the shelter and meet him today! #143335
Meet Vicky, a sweet, 8-year-old, Domestic Shorthair mix wearing a unique tortoiseshell fur coat. She weighs 14 shapely pounds. Her family surrendered me to the SPCA of Texas on August 20 because they developed an allergy to her. That’s ok; she knows the perfect family is waiting to take her home. Her dream is to find a comfy home to live in for her retirement years. Could that be with you? She has been spayed, tested for FIV/FeLV (she’s negative), microchipped, had a dental cleaning and received all of her age-appropriate vaccinations. She has the total package! She is a quiet, reserved cat, but loves when you pet her and speak to her softly… your reward will be a lovely purr song. Her hobbies are watching the feather wand as it waves by, batting at a little crinkle toy and people-watching! Vicky will be a wonderful friend and companion for you! Meet her today! #142582
