Adoptable Pets of the Week
- Breed: Domestic Short Hair
- Gender: Female
- Born in 2010
- Loves people and other kitties
- A bit of a shy girl, mostly at first
Bridgette's eyes look like little golden nuggets framed by her clean, white coat. The little tuft of gray on the top of her head could be her crown! She may look regal, but she's as down to earth as they come. No "cattitude" from this girl.
As much as she enjoys keeping company with other kitties, she's more subdued and shy around new people. She came to Best Friends from a shelter in Missouri that closed, and we believe she may never have experienced life with a family. But she's settling in and with people she knows she is a lovebug.
Bridgette has started playing with a few cat toys. She still enjoys petting, even from strangers. Just don't look for her to burst with enthusiasm right off the bat. In time, Bridgette will likely become an adoring lap cat. All Bridgette wants is the same thing we all want -- a love that lasts a lifetime. If you're looking for that, too, give her a call!
- Breed: Australian Cattle Dog
- Gender: Male
- 1 to 4 years old
- Favorite activities: cuddling and herding
- Smart and athletic
Google is an Australian cattle dog and proud of it! He'll show you his herding skills any chance he gets. He has enviable, laser-sharp focus on the task at hand -- especially when that task is cuddling with you! He's a super affectionate boy who loves giving kisses and being petted all over.
Well, all over except for one place -- his tender neck. Sadly, his previous people kept him on a tight rope in the yard and it cut into his neck. Even though the physical wounds have healed, he still has unhappy memories and shrinks from any neck rubs. Because of this, he'd be happiest in a home with children over the age of 12, so they understand his feelings about that.
With his ability to stay focused, his good energy and his dedication to pleasing his person, Google would make a great agility dog or just a great family companion. How about yours?
