Gus is a 5-year-old Jack Russell Terrier who will seek out attention and loves getting pet. He would like to find a home with a nice lap to sit on all day. When people at the shelter see him they call his name and he gets so wiggly and happy and he jumps into their arms and gives them kisses.
‘Tis the season! Over the next few weeks, schedules are filled with shopping, holiday parties, relatives, financial pressures, obligations, and plenty of food and spirits. Socializing during the holidays can be stressful and challenging, especially if your friends and family are not as health-conscious as you. The abundance of holiday treats and homemade goodies can be hard to resist. Fortunately, there’s plenty you can do to avoid holiday weight gain, manage your blood sugars, stay healthy, happy and fit, and enjoy celebrating the holidays.
This 7-month-old kitten is sure to steal your heart. Crystal was named for her gorgeous crystal blue eyes. She is a Calico Point Siamese cat with a great personality. This sweet cat is very affectionate and loves human attention. She loves to play with toys and enjoys lap time with her human companions. She enjoys the company of dogs as well as other cats.
Kimber is an active 3-year-old female Beagle mix who is housebroken and can use a doggie door. She gets along great with her foster brothers and loves to play and wrestle. She is crate trained and loves to cuddle and give kisses. Kimber would be good with older kids, probably best for kids 10 and older since she is little food aggressive. She does not bark much except at meal times to tell you she is hungry. She walks well on a leash and likes to explore.
There’s one family member on your Christmas shopping list who will love whatever gift they get. Shopping for pets for the holidays is especially easy in Ahwatukee Foothills.
Today JB the Bernese Mountain Dog is an award winner and a professional model, but at 8 months old he was a bullied puppy whose owners couldn’t keep him around.
Rescued when they were just a week old, these two adorable 9-week-old kittens are active, playful, and affectionate. A brother and sister team, Grayson (gray tabby) and Bebe (black) enjoy chasing each other.
Caramel is a sweet 11-year-old Beagle girl whose owner moved away and left her behind. She is so easygoing and very obedient. She likes to just hang out, take naps and sniff around the yard. Caramel gets along well with other dogs and children. Since she is a bit overweight she would benefit from more exercise and less food. Dieting is hard and Caramel is hungry so if there is more than one dog in the home it would be best to feed her separately.
Fresno was abandoned in a house with at least a dozen other cats. She is a very petite Tabby with a minor disability. Her left knee does not bend, but she does not seem to notice. She still has the ability to walk, run, jump, and even climb up a cat tree to see the world. Fresno will follow you everywhere, rub her head and body against everything, and jump in your lap to give or receive a hug.
Paisley is a sweet 2-year-old female Beagle. She loves to be around people, but other dogs just terrify her. She was attacked by another dog so it will take patience, love and some professional training for her to feel comfortable around other dogs. Until then, Paisley will do great being an only dog in the household. She is housebroken and rarely barks. She does need to be kept on a leash because, like most Beagles, she will take off to follow a scent. Her coat is very soft and she lets everyone hold and pet her.
Mitch is a senior, male, beautiful gray Tabby. He is sweet and friendly, competing with all the younger cats at the shelter. This wise one knows not to miss an opportunity for attention. Mitch comes right out to receive pets and scratches when someone enters the kitty room. He’ll rub up against you and beg for treats, too. He’s doing everything he can to catch the attention of someone, but being a senior it is often difficult to compete with the “kids.”
Halloween is the last day to catch most fall festivals around the East Valley.
Zoey, a beautiful 4-month-old “tuxedo” kitten was abandoned inside a box left in front of a PetSmart. Even though she was dehydrated and exhausted from her experience, she is still very trusting of humans and extremely affectionate. She is good with other cats and was introduced to dogs at her previous foster home. She will need a home where she can slowly transition into her new family.
Oh, the dream of taking your dog to the park, taking him off the leash, and playing fetch without him running away. For some dogs this can be a reality. Unfortunately, for others, the instinctual desires to smell and track will make it difficult to trust their “off-leash” freedom. I tell customers that off-leash obedience is NOT for every dog, so be sure that your dog has mastered the “come” command before attempting any off-lead work.
Wiggles and Wags has paid off loan, tripled staff, adding 17 new kennels ins 17,000-square-feet space.
Zoey May is a sweet 10-year-old Beagle girl whose owners lost their home so now she is homeless. She loves to be petted and hanging out with her foster parents. She loves to go on daily walks, is housebroken, doggie-door trained, and crate trained. Zoey May would be best with kids over 12. She gets along great with other dogs, too.
Zoey, a beautiful 4-month-old “tuxedo” kitten was abandoned inside a box left in front of a PetSmart. Even though she was dehydrated and exhausted from her experience, she is still very trusting of humans and extremely affectionate. She can be a bit timid at first, but quickly warms up to you. She constantly purrs and craves human attention as a lap cat or just to have you in the room with her. She loves to play with toys and take naps next to you. Zoey is good with other cats and was introduced to dogs at her previous foster home. She will need a home where she can slowly transition into her new family. Can you give her a second chance at a new life?
No one wants to think about home improvement chores in the summer, but with the hope of cooler weather drawing nigh, it’s time to start making those ‘to-do’ lists. The fall Maricopa County Home and Landscape Show comes just in time.
Little brown Zoey is definitely all puppy, full of energy and so happy just to be alive. Curious about everyone and everything and just an awesome little girl. She even still has that wonderful puppy breath. She loves going on outings, car rides and chasing after toys, leaves or birds, etc. Zoey is a petite little girl with a big heart full of love and ready to open it up to anyone willing to give her a chance. She is a great little shopper as she demonstrated on a recent trip to Pet Club, checking out everything on the bottom shelf but never once taking anything in her mouth. She is a joy to be around and will bring a smile to your face and everyone she meets. Zoey loves other dogs so a home with another canine to romp with would be nice. Her forever family must be one that is ready to give her guidance and show her right from wrong. She is not completely house trained and needs some work on that, but she is a very smart little girl so she will master this in no time.
Just two years after opening the doors with a dream of staying in business, Wiggles and Wags Pet Resort is expanding to make room for its non-stop business.
Let’s face it. Dogs ARE a part of your family. No matter how you want to look at it, we are less stressed and more comfortable when our pets are with us. With this said, over 70 percent of pet owners now regularly travel with their pets.
Just over a year ago Ahwatukee Foothills resident Stephanie Bird was told her then 10-year-old Boxer, Sasha, had degenerative myelopathy, a disease which would cause the dog to slowly become paralyzed. The vet told her that Sasha had maybe a year to live.
