PAWS Pet of the Week: Lexi's Looking For Love!

By millere80 Published: March 28, 2011

Can you provide a wonderful home for this loving little girl? Lexi is a beautiful, sleek short haired all black female who is a terrific mom. She has 2 babies and was a wonderful surrogate mom to a kitten who lost its mother.

Now that Lexi's babies are ready to fly the nest, she is ready for a furever home of her own. An extremely loving and affectionate cat, Lexi adores people. She has started to play and enjoy post-kitten life once again. Still in somewhat protective baby mode, Lexi is extremely cautious of other cats and dogs right now. With time, she will overcome this. Or, she can celebrate life as a single cat with a special purrrrrson or a family to adore only her!

Dog adoption: Scooby, the German Shorthaired Pointer/Labrador Retriever

By jim Published: March 10, 2011

Scooby is a 5-yr-old German Shorthaired Pointer/Labrador Retriever. Scooby has had a difficult life and is looking for his permanent home. He is loyal, highly intelligent, loves hiking, and sometimes forgets he's not a lap dog.

Scooby knows sit, stay, leave it, come, watch, down, drop it, back up, take it, has leash manners, and has continued to thrive with positive reinforcement training. He has become calm natured, very loving, soulful and really bonds with his people. He is a pleasant buddy to hang out with it. He loves being challenged to learn new things and toys...Did we mention he LOVES interactive toys! Interactive toys have helped learn how to problem solve and he is so proud of himself when he’s able to conquer a challenge.

Scooby’s highly intelligent and has developed a large vocabulary. He can tell the difference between many objects. For example, if you set up several different items he knows which is which and will seek out the one you ask him to touch or target. Can’t you just picture the fun you will have teaching him new words and showing off how smart he is!

Being outdoors and tracking scents is another one of his favorite things. He comes by it naturally. though the surgeries will keep him from formally competing, you and he will have hours of fun and bonding doing it casually. When he was medically released to take walks from his surgery, his foster family immediately recognized how he would follow scents. Wanting to give him all the enrichment they could, they purchased fox scent and he loves tracking it. He also tracks the scents their kitties leave around the farm.

To learn more about Scooby, contact Deanna at Deanna@mhaf.com or 440-829-4366. Middleburg Heights Animal Foundation www.mhaf.com.

PAWS Pet of the Week: Meet Twister!

A cute white and gray girl, between 1-2 years of age, Twister was abandoned at a vet's office. We don't know what happened in her past but we do know that she has such a promising future. A very sweet little girl, Twister loves kisses and cuddling on laps.

Although Twister takes time to warm up, once she trusts you, she's yours. She really enjoys attention, is fine with one cat or dog, but would be best in a quieter home with someone to adore her.
