Cheerio, a Norwich Terrier Mix, is such a handsome and charming little man. This playful pup makes Don Juan look tame: he loves to give kisses and hugs. Cheerio can be shy at first, but once he warms up to you, he loves you. Cheerio likes to sit on your lap, enjoys sleeping in bed with you, loves belly rubs, and is more than OK with you picking him up to give him hugs and kisses. Cheerio’s friendly, easygoing and mellow nature applies to friendly animals, too.
Paisley, a 5-year-old boxer/terrier and American pit bull mix, is very treat-motivated and would love to show off her tricks like sit and lay down. She walks really well on a leash. She loves squeaky toys, whether it’s playing with people or by herself.
Duke, a 4-year-old Terrier/American Pit Bull mix, loves tennis balls and playing fetch. He is very sweet and affectionate. Duke is great with kids of all ages and other dogs, too. He is neutered and up to date on all his shots. His adoption fee is $135.
Siblings Ashley and Peanut are 5-year-old Terrier/Pit Bull females. We would love for them to go home together and are offering an adoption special in hopes that they will. Together their adoption fee is $200 with free leash and collar sets. They both are spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and have 30 days of free pet insurance.
Jackson, a 3-year-old American Pit Bull mix, can be a little shy at first, but when he realizes that you aren’t going anywhere he is a very sweet and wiggly boy. Jackson is energetic and loves to play. His favorite toy is the Frisbee. And when he’s not playing he loves to cuddle and kiss. Jackson may get along with cats, but it’s not recommended that he be housed with other dogs or children younger than junior high age.

Los Angeles • Cat owners have done a good job spaying and neutering their pets. The big issue now when it comes to felines is population control of feral cats, and that's led to a movement by animal welfare groups to trap colonies of these wild cats for sterilization.
Anyone who knows me knows I have a soft spot for animals, mostly dogs, and especially shelter dogs. So when Ed Lakom came into our office recently to share his story about his rescue dog and how they cruise the streets of Ahwatukee together, I just had to tell their story.
