Tri-County Animal Rescue

ALEXIS, N.C. – Tri-County Animal Rescue has this beautiful Yorkshire Terrier mix named Sammie as our Pet of the Week.  Sammie is 4-years-old and weighs about 10 pounds.  He will not get any bigger.  Sammie is a sweet little soul with lots of love to share. He is good with other dogs so he would make a great companion for another pet.  He loves all people and just wants to be held.  Sammie has a beautiful coat and will require regular grooming.  He is neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm negative and micro-chipped.  Please come meet this little man this Saturday.

BIG DOG Pet of the Week
Tri-County Animal Rescue BIG DOG Pet of the Week is this beautiful Old English Sheepdog (OES) named Zoe.  She is 4-years-old and weighs about 80 pounds.  Zoe loves people BUT she needs an alpha type person as her owner.  She is a great dog but needs an owner with a history of herding type dogs.  Zoe needs purpose in life so a working farm would be ideal for her as long as she is with her owner.  She can be moody when asked to do something that she doesn’t wish to do…like move off the bed.  Zoe is spayed, current on vaccines, heartworm negative and micro-chipped.  Come see Zoe this weekend!

The Old English Sheepdog is a large, athletic dog breed with an unmistakable shaggy coat. The Old English Sheepdog was historically a drover, helping farmers drive cattle and sheep to the market. Today, the good-natured Old English Sheepdog enjoys the comfort of home life and still competes in conformation, obedience, agility, and herding trials. He’s an adaptable, intelligent dog with an easygoing disposition.

He's certainly a large dog at 60 to 100 pounds, but his profuse coat of blue-gray and white makes him appear even larger. Known for his wonderful temperament, he's powerful, sturdy, and hardworking. Those who know and love him are familiar with his sense of humor. He can be playful and comical, although he is also the guardian and protector of his family. You can't talk about the OES without talking about hair, a lot of hair. This coat needs more care than most. It's long and prone to matting if not regularly brushed. Many owners clip the hair short — but if he is to be a show dog, the OES cannot be trimmed short.

Anyone considering this breed must think long and hard about grooming and related care. The OES is highly adaptable. To some people's surprise, he does well in an apartment if he is exercised regularly. In spite of his working heritage, he is not a good candidate for a backyard dog. He wants to be, and should be, with his family, and he can suffer from separation anxiety if left alone too long. He is trainable and responds well to a firm owner who is kind and consistent.

Please come out to our adoption event this weekend.  If you are looking for an addition to your family, please come out and meet our pets this weekend.  We have many available pets at the Gastonia PetSmart located at 3698 East Franklin Boulevard this Saturday noon to 6 p.m.
