Pet of the Week 12/17/14


Our new pets of the week Mazy and Sprocket. Mazy is a Sheltie mix and Sprocket is a Terrier mix. They’ve spent their whole lives together, and were surrendered due to their owner moving from the country to the city.

Mazy is 5 years old and weighs 40 pounds. Some Shelties show shyness and/or nervousness when encountering a new environment or strangers and this seems to be the case right now for Mazy. Sensitivity is a hallmark of this breed and she will do very well with gentle guidance and food rewards. Although she is reserved she is also peaceful and polite. Mazy is dog, cat and kid friendly.

Sprocket is 6 years old and weighs 16 pounds. He is a real sweetheart who is dog, cat and kid friendly. He is a silly little guy who loves attention and is pretty playful. Sprocket has not walked on a lead before so we are working on that with him. Like many terriers, he is energetic, determined, playful and independent.
