Cuter than cute, sweet and adorable just begins to describe Radar. Just look at those ears, that face! What’s not to love? He’s listed as a 2-month-old, tan and white American Staffordshire terrier mix puppy — but there are hints that there’s more terrier in him. Radar is a funloving, playful boy who loves to cuddle and clown. He will do best with owner(s) who will give him their love, attention, care, obedience training, routine exercise — play may be included, in a fenced area or on leash — all appropriate for his age, and of course, a good forever home. Come spend a little with time with this wonderful pup and see what a great little guy he is. Radar’s ID is No. 1288.



This handsome approximately 8-month-old tabby boy wears a beautiful American shorthair coat of snow white, pastel orange and slightly darker apricot stripes. His facial features include huge, glistening light-green eyes and a rosebud nose. Sherbert is a really nice fellow with a playful, friendly, calm and gentle nature. He will be a welcome addition in a variety of good forever, loving, home settings. Once there, he will blossom into a wonderful pet and companion. Sherbert’s ID is No. 1228. Pay him a visit and see for yourself what great cat he is. He’s available at the shelter.
