ALEXIS, N.C. – Tri-County Animal Rescue has this 1-year-old Wire Haired Terrier named Cooper and a 10-year-old Maltese boy named Cotton as our Pets of the Week. Cooper weighs about 8 pounds and Cotton is about 6 pounds. They are sweet and loving and need a forever home. Both boys are neutered, current on vaccines and micro-chipped. Please come meet little Cooper and Cotton this Saturday.
The Maltese dog breed is gentle and fearless. They greet everyone as a friend. They are known for their glamorous white coat which gives them a look of haughty nobility, but looks can be deceiving. This is a sprightly, vigorous dog who excels not only as a companion but also as a therapy dog and competitor in such dog sports as agility, obedience, rally, and tracking. But most of all, they love to be with their people.
BIG DOG Pet of the Week
Tri-County Animal Rescue Big Dog Pet of the Week is this Australian Shepherd/Labrador Retriever mix named Wally. Wally is 1.5-years-old and weighs about 55-65 pounds. He has lots of energy so a fenced yard is a must! Wally loves to play and can go for hours. He is the sweetest dog that loves kisses. Wally thinks he is a small dog and will curl up on your lap if possible. He has a short Aussie tail that wags non-stop. Wally is neutered, current on vaccines and micro-chipped. He will be looking for you this weekend!
This is an athletic dog of medium/large size and bone; it is lithe, agile and slightly longer than it is tall. Its gait is free and easy, and it must be able to change direction or speed instantly. It has a beautiful coat with medium texture and length, straight to wavy. Frequent brushing, warm baths and thorough blow drying will help keep the hair under control. The expression is keen, intelligent and eager.
The Australian shepherd has a great deal of stamina and is loving, bold, alert, confident, independent, smart and responsive. If it doesn't get a chance to exercise and challenge its strongly developed mental and physical activities, it is apt to become frustrated and difficult to live with. With proper exercise and training, it is a loyal, utterly devoted and obedient companion. It is reserved with strangers and has a protective nature. It may try to herd children and small animals by nipping.
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.
