Princess Mittens Needs A Foster or Forever Home

Jazzy Needs A Foster or Forever Home

Meet Princess Mittens, a beautiful, outgoing little 2 year old female! She was a stray surrender and looked very pregnant. After over a month, and no babies, we scheduled her spay, concerned something was wrong. And we were right. Princess had fluid in her uterus and Fallopian tubes weighing a whooping 3.5 pounds!! She was not pregnant. Thank goodness all went smooth in surgery and she recovered beautifully. Princess Mittens is very affectionate, very outgoing and quite playful. She would do well alone or with a friendly male cat. She is a bit apprehensive of dogs at first, but we're confident she would do well with a cat-savvy dog. Princess would probably do best if kids in the home were over 8 years old. Princess is up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, FIV/FeLV negative, and spayed. Meet Jazzy, a sweet and affectionate 7 year old female pit bull. Jazzy is a very happy, very smart girl. She bonds with her people very fast. Through no fault of her own she has been surrendered twice since she was a tiny puppy (one divorce and another a move). Jazzy is wonderful with cats and kids of all ages! At one home she got into a fight with an unstable dog and has had PTSD since. She is great with dogs in passing and even visiting she likes to play. She should not however live with another dog. Her PTSD has made her a bit unpredictable with other dogs if they run from behind or act "unnatural" to her and she reacts defensively. Jazzy has some skin allergies and is on Apoquil (1 pill/day) which is about $50 a month. She also needs her ears cleaned out once a week. Other than that she's very healthy, ready to go for a walk, run or even a swim (if not too deep)! Jazzy is up to date on vaccines, dewormed and spayed.
