ANDY

Hi, everyone, I’m Andy! Aren’t I a handsome guy? I’m a 7-year-old border collie and golden retriever mix, and I’m hoping to steal your heart. I’m extra smart, and would love to move into a home where I could spend lots of time being your sidekick. I already know lots of tricks, and I would really enjoy learning more, maybe even some agility, too! Since I can be a little bouncy, teenagers and adults would be best for me. I’m lots of fun to be around and know we would just have the best time if you’ll take the first step to come meet me! I might prefer to be the only dog in your house, but don’t worry, I’m confident that I will fill your heart up with love. I really like pleasing my humans, and after a busy day will show you my soft, affectionate side. Won’t you give me a chance today?

LUCKY

If you want a companion that will make you smile daily, then come on in and meet me! I’m a gorgeous, big boy who will bring lots of love to my new family. I have lived with a medium-size dog and my brother cat, so I will consider homes with other cats and dogs. I haven’t been around children, but probably wouldn’t mind living with older kids who will give me time to get used to them. Don’t be alarmed if you come to visit me and see a sign saying don’t stick your fingers in my cage. I don’t like being in my cage even though the people here gave me a special cage to reside in. I am, however, very friendly outside my cage, and just love attention and being patted! Come and meet me to see how wonderful I am!

PUPPIES

“Puppy Pandemonium” is soon coming to New Hampshire! We’re eagerly anticipating the arrival of five 16-week-old red and blue heeler puppies – Australian cattle dogs – en route from a high-kill shelter. Dear little Pongo has four sisters who torment him (Precious, Peaches, Pam and Petunia). Rumors of puppies “gone wild” and nonstop puppy bowl action are spreading like wildfire. The cuteness factor is off the charts. And sweet? Well, let’s just say maple syrup is no match for these babies. Cattle dogs are high-energy, ideally suited for active homes where they will get plenty of exercise, mental stimulation and a “job” to do. A fenced-in yard and activities like agility, herding, running or obedience will allow these dogs to constructively burn off their zealous energy. These pups are very social with other dogs and people. It is critical they receive ongoing socialization, training and proper exercise to become good canine citizens.

Hours are by appointment only. For more information, visit www.arnne.org, email info@arnne.org or call 233-4801. Meet our adoptable pets at our monthly Pet Adoption Day at the Pelham Congregational Church, 3 Main St. The next one is 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Oct. 25.
