11/08/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Like so many of us girls, Aubrey likes to change her ‘hairstyle’, so it was with great amusement that at times one ear is up, the other down, and other times both ears are sort of ‘flap like’….but either way – she’s adorable, fun, friendly and a great companion. She’s sleek and elegant and enjoys sniffing her way to the park where she poses for photos like a pro (this is her one ear up phase). She’s like haute dogcouture in her passion for change – so cute! Making friends shyly with some men who wanted to meet her, she gave a gentle, calm kiss to their hands before we moved on. Wagging her tail at other dogs we pass, she romps in group, often soliciting play. Aubrey can be shy, keeping her tail tucked until she’s comfortable and then it’s game on while we play and have fun. Off leash she finds a squeaky toy and brings it over to me for a game of tug, returning for a second game when I let her win. Our fashionista is looking for a new home and is hoping you’ll stop by to meet her today.

12/22/16 WEB MEMO
Lela’s foster family writes: Meet Lela! Lela is a 46-pound brindle beauty that was surrendered to the shelter after being found dirty and tied to a pole back in early November. Lela is a pit bull mix and the shelter thinks she is approximately two years old. One of the sweetest dogs anyone could hope to meet, Lela is now ready to love again, and she makes no bones about it! Lela loves easy walks, playing at the dog park, and quiet nights at home nestled by your side. Lela is housetrained, lives harmoniously with cats, and will “sit” and “go to bed” when asked to do so. What else should potential adopters know about Lela? Well, perhaps as a result of being abandoned, Lela can get anxious if left alone. But with the help of food puzzles, bully sticks, and a large dog crate where she can feel safe, Lela has been quickly regaining her ability to enjoy time by herself. She would be best in a home where this type of anxiety is understood so that her progress is sure to continue.
