The Edge Pet of The Week 2/15


ID# A1825585 – Nella is a 1 year-old, Tan, American Pit Bull Terrier mix. Super sweet and affectionate is the best way to describe this lovely little girl. She is an incredible joy to be around with her very mellow and laid back personality. In her ideal home, she would be a one and only dog or live with a dog who is also easy going. Nelly loves cuddling, belly rubs, playing with toys and snacking on rawhides. If you would like to meet this sweetheart, visit her at the Eastside shelter by getting in the virtual line.

ID# A1824506 – Red is a 6 year old, Brown, German Shepherd mix. Are you looking for a wonderful companion? Red is it! Red is pretty good on leash, and sure does enjoy his walks. He is mellow and easy going and would make a great family pet. Red would also very much appreciate daily walks, petting and enjoys his brushing. Red seems to like other dogs but a meet and greet with another dog in the home would be best. If Red is a dog that you would like to meet, visit our Eastside shelter and get into our virtual line.
