Greetings from Jepetto, a 3-month-old, male, shepherd-retriever-mix puppy. His short, easy-to-maintain coat is golden, and he sports a white bib, as well as white tips on his toes. His bright, golden eyes, show alertness and will melt your heart. His demeanor is calm, friendly and well behaved.  Jepetto loves his head and under his chin rubbed, and he is responsive to the gentle, loving touch.  This pup will be a great addition to a good forever home.



Hi, my name is Louise. I am a 10-month-old bi-color female, junior kitten. My coat is a medium-length, silky, charcoal and white. I have a beautiful face and interesting makings. I am looking for someone to love me, and in return I have much love to give. I am quiet, gentle and affectionate. I would love to keep you company, cuddling on the couch. I also love to watch all that is going on outside the window. Please come visit me and three other strikingly beautiful junior kittens, of varying ages, that accompanied me to the shelter (I was the only one ready for my close-up); one female tortoiseshell with amber, gold and coal patterns and two tabbies, one male and one female, with russet, snow and cocoa markings .
