The Edge Pet of The Week 11/9


ID# A1821817 – Pinkerton is a 2 year-old, Lynx Point, Domestic Shorthair mix. Pinkerton is a cool cat! He is laid back, a social guy and loves to hang out with frienduds. He enjoys a good chat, alone or with others. He does have a low play drive, because toys are not as interesting as exploring and taking time out of the day to have a chatty conversation. Pinkerton is currently hanging out at the Eastside shelter and awaiting to meet a forever friend. Sign up on the virtual line.

ID# A1807956 – Mia is a 6 year old, Brindle Mastiff mix. A word that is often used to describe Mia is SWEET! She is a very friendly and affectionate girl, with lots of love to give. Her favorite thing to do is run around in the playyard and after exploring a bit, she will come around asking for treats and attention. Mia is housebroken and when she is ready to settle for pets, she is nice and mellow. To meet this sweet girl, go to the Westside shelter for an introduction by signing up to the virtual line.
