This approximately 5-year-old, medium-size girl is a Carolina dog mix, possibly a bully or terrier mix. Maisy is a smart, well-behaved dog who loves people and getting attention from them. She’s attractive in her unusually colored, shorthair coat of brown/black brindle and brown with white accents. Maisy is sweet, very attentive and wants to be your very best friend. She will need owner(s) willing to give her love, attention, exercise in a fenced area or on leash and basic obedience training. Maisy deserves a good, loving forever home where she can be a faithful companion and pet.

Hunk o’ love, that’s what this 1 year, 6-month-old cat is. Spike, a big boy, is an American shorthair tabby with a soft coat of pale orange and the trademark tabby stripes in darker orange. This handsome fellow is full of love and affection, loves being petted and will roll over to encourage more. A friendly, calm and gentle, all-around great cat, Spike will make a wonderful addition in a variety of good forever, loving, home settings.
