Two of a Kind: Dog(s) of the Week

Hello!  I’m Lady and I’m a shepherd/retriever mix.  In my opinion, there are two main rules.Number one: Dogs are way cooler than cats.  Number two: Girls rule and boys drool. Seriously, have you ever met a male dog that didn’t drool?

Obviously the human writing these articles didn’t get that memo.  She is making me share the featured spot with a BOY.  How rude! His name is Shep and he is also a shepherd mix. 

She said she wanted to feature a bigger dog that would make a great family pet and could not decide between the two of us. Blah Blah Blah. Sense a little bit of resentment? Well, Shep and I do have a history  . ..   No, not that kind! 

We were both rescued from a high-kill shelter in North Carolina by Small Miracles.
I’m certainly more beautiful than him. I am also a very loving and affectionate dog. I do have to admit, however, that Shep also has a great temperament and is just as friendly.

If you are looking for the perfect companion to complete your family, we may just be the dog for you! We will greet you at the door with our wagging tails and silly dog grins. We will love playing with your kids outside and when they get tired, we make the perfect over-sized fluffy pillows to relax with. Please stop by Small Miracles today to me us! (But make sure to see me first!)

Why Not Be Happy? Cat of the Week

Hello my friend!  My name is Felicity! I love my name because it means happiness and I am one happy girl. I’m patient, quiet, and kind. It’s rare to find be in a bad mood because I am just happy to be here and happy to be healthy again.

The streets are a rough life for anyone and cats are no different.
I don’t quite remember how it happened, but by the time I came to Small Miracles, I had open wounds on my back foot. The wound was so severe that a few of my back toes had to be amputated. I could be sad or bitter about my rough past and losing a few toes, but what’s the point in that?
Being bitter does not get you anywhere; and certainly not a home.

So, I made the decision to always be happy! Even when they took my stitches out, I sat calmly in the volunteers arms without making a fuss. Now that I’m all better, it’s time to find a new loving, fur-ever home! Won’t you please come visit me?
You know I’ll be happy to see you!

A Little Off: Dog of the Week

Good day!  My name is Sebastian; after all, a little rat terrier like me needs a big name.  Like our last dog of the week, Omar, I’m another true rescue.  While I’m not as old as my pal Omar, I do have a disability so that makes me extra special.

When I was a younger lad, I developed quite a back problem and as a result, I had my back fused.  I’m no longer in any pain, but I do walk a bit sideways, not quite like our Maryland blue crab though.  Even though I walk funny, I still love going on walks!  Once on a leash I’ll wiggle and walk all around which does make it just about impossible to get a good picture of me.
I would love a quieter home where I would make a great companion and lap dog.  A nice quiet home would be a dream come true!  Do I mind cats you might wonder?  Well, it is a bit embarrassing being about half the size of a cat but I could learn to share.
Please stop by Small Miracles today to meet me!  While you are here, also visit Omar who is “half price” due to his age.
