As soon as Russell gives you one of his trademark big grins and snuggly hugs, you’ll be sold. This 18-month-old black and white Labrador Retriever mix is as sweet as they come, and his personality definitely reflects the Lab side. He’s packed with energy and eager to please, and nothing makes him happier than getting a belly rub for good behavior. Russell seems to be accepting of other dogs, so he would probably be content to have furry brothers and sisters. Because he is quite young and very active, a large fenced-in yard would be ideal, so he can regularly stretch those super long legs.
If you’re a cat lover, Amelia will make your day and life. She’s about 2 years old and no longer living in the rambunctious kitten stage and has settled into a quiet, laid-back way of life. She’s now content to sit by a window and watch the fascinating things happening on the other side of the glass. This sweet-tempered Tabby is as pretty as she is calm and easy-going, displaying a beautiful orange blend throughout her brown coat of very soft hair.
