SPCA Pets of the Week
Meet Bella, a beautiful 5-year-old Sharpei mix with the biggest smile around. This sweet girl gets along well with other dogs and has never met a stranger. This super-sweet girl is also incredibly smart. Bella is already house trained, crate trained and obedience trained. She loves to be with her family and especially loves to snuggle. Sometime you might even catch Bella sneaking in a quick kiss right on your cheek. This precious girl was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on March 9 because her family no longer had time to give her the attention she deserves. What do you say? Come give this sweetheart a lifetime of love and affection. #103098

Meet Shadow, a lovely 1-year-old, 48-pound, male Labrador/Chow Chow mix, with an absolutely gorgeous espresso-colored coat. Shadow is a social butterfly with a tremendous smile and has a great big kiss ready for each and every person he meets. In fact, one of his favorite ways to greet people is to nuzzle his face against their neck and smack a warm kiss right on their chin or cheek. Doesn’t that sound delightful? Once he has given you that proper, loving “hello,” Shadow would love to go on a walk. He is very polite on the leash and responds well to correction if he gets a little too excited about going to the dog park. Once he is off leash, Shadow enjoys skipping and prancing about. Shadow is a great family pet and would love to have a kiddo playmate to spend his days with! However, Shadow would prefer to be the only dog in the household. This sweet boy is actually deaf and would prefer not to have to share your love and attention. Living with a deaf pup is no different than living with any other pup! Shadow still has four legs with which to jog by your side, a wagging tail to let you know he’s happy, and a wet nose and warm tongue to shower you with kisses! With love and dedication, you and Shadow will learn to use sign language, movement, and even vibration to communicate with one another. Shadow was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on Feb. 19 because his previous owners could not keep up with his jubilant personality. Shadow is a fun-loving guy who enjoys a good time. So what are you waiting for? Come meet Shadow today! #103424
Meet Kitty Girl, a gorgeous 7-year-old Domestic Shorthair with a beautiful orange tabby coat. Kitty Girl came to the SPCA of Texas on Jan. 15, after her family had to move away. Though she misses them terribly, Kitty Girl knows that she will find her forever family soon. This sweet girl can be a little bit shy when she first meets her human companions, but she is a real lover once she gets to know you. Unlike most kitty cats, Kitty Girl loves to have her belly rubbed, and she especially loves to play with feather wands. Kitty Girl even gets along with other cats and dogs. If that’s not enough to prove how perfect she really is, this smart girl is already litter trained and can’t wait to spend the rest of her life with you. What do you say? Come meet Kitty Girl today. #111059
