The Edge Pet of The Week 7/20


ID# A1755157 – Osa is a 3 year-old, Black Domestic Shorthair mix. Osa is sweet and petite! She would make a great companion! She would love a lap to curl up in and would welcome pets all day long. She is shy upon first meeting, but in no time at all, Osa will warm to you and show you her affectionate side. Osa would very much enjoy a quiet home to call her own and she will fill it with lots of love. Osa is currently living in an office where she is being given lots of attention, if you would like to meet her, set up an appointment at the Eastside shelter. 

ID# A18117067 –Balboa is a 4 year old, Brown Chihuahua mix. Balboa is an itty bitty one with lots of spunk. The key to Balboa’s friendship are treats! He is shy in the beginning but once he feels assured, he will sit on your lap and become your bestfriend. Balboa knows “sit”, he likes to play fetch. He is a feisty guy but only because he wants to be taken seriously and hopes that his strong personality is something that someone will appreciate and will make the effort to get to know. If you want to be the one to give this little pup a home, set up an appointment to meet him at the Eastside shelter.
