Meet Precious, an adorable 1-year-old, 52 pound red and black Boxer mix. You can see how she got her name! She’s not only cute as can be (did you see the adorable wrinkles on her forehead?), but she’s one of the sweetest dogs around! Precious came to the SPCA of Texas on May 19 because her family didn’t have time for a pet. They did want you to know that she is very loving and she enjoys playing with other dogs. Did you know that you can bring your dog to the shelter for a meet and greet with her? That way they can get to know each other ahead of time. She absolutely loves getting attention and will soak it up. A head pat here, an ear scratch there – she loves it all! Precious really enjoys going for walks and a game of fetch or tug. While at the shelter, she has really liked going for walks in the garden and exploring. She’s seen bunnies and butterflies in the garden and finds them fascinating. Her previous owner noted that she is completely housebroken. But after being in the shelter, she might need a little refresher. Volunteers have noted that she really likes treats. Who doesn’t, right? When you hand them to her, she takes them very gently. And when you show her attention, you’ll see her back end wiggle like crazy. Because she finds them a little too interesting, it’s best that she doesn’t go to a home with cats. They are just too much fun to chase. Precious has been spayed, microchipped and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. Will you come visit her today? She can’t wait to meet you. You will be best friends! #141157
Meet Martin, a 3-month-old Domestic Shorthair mix weighing a tiny 3 pounds of soft fur sweetness. His fur coat is a very handsome black with 4 white socks, a white patch in the middle of his back and a white apron! His black mask is darling and makes him so cute! On May 6 my owners surrendered him to the SPCA of Texas because they felt he needed more time for play and socialization. He’ll miss them, but because he’s an energetic kitty, he knows his new family will take care of that! Could this be you? Martin loves playing with the scratch board, climbing, batting at the feather wand and sleeping. He has been neutered, tested for FIV/FeLV, (he’s negative), microchipped and has received age-appropriate vaccinations. He’ll be watching for you when you come to meet him. Come and see Martin, the cutest black and white kitty ever! You can be BFFFs- Best Furry Friends Forever. #140872
