Perfectly personifying puppy power, seven-month-old Peter is just about the niftiest pup you will meet, a bit of a flirt, with a weakness for giving kisses and playing with every pet and person he meets. He is a medium-sized American Staffordshire terrier mix, with just a bit more growing left to do, so he will fit right into most homes as long as plenty of play and exercise is provided. He loves other dogs and would thrive in a loving home with other pets to play with. He has an easy care short coat with white and brown patches and the cutest little freckles on his muzzle. He loves to hit the town and explore -- -- uptown, downtown, to parks, and to pet stores. So if you’ve been searching for a social partner to go on long walks with, Peter is the dog you’ve been waiting for.

Kanga has grown by leaps and bounds from the tiny kitten she was when her journey began. Now a beautiful one-year-old, she is ready to settle down and share the next chapter in her story. She is as loving and gentle as her namesake from the classic Pooh tales and always seems to find the best spots to cuddle in. Although she does wonderfully with other pets and with children, she likes to take things slow when settling into new surroundings. She loves to show off her soft brown tabby coat, and will mew and chirp to get your attention. She loves to perch up high to get the best view of potential families that come in to visit. Kanga is a special cat with a wealth of love to give her forever family and is ready to go home today and begin her new life.
