DBCHS Pets of the week, July 31

Published 6:46 pm Tuesday, July 30, 2019

This week our featured pets are Flicker and Axel.

Flicker is a cute 2-year-old black and white kitty. She was a stray and is a friendly girl, but she is a little shy at first with new people. Flicker has cute markings on her face and big golden eyes. She enjoys looking out the window of the kitty condo and napping on a soft pillow. Flicker gets along with other cats. She’s a quiet girl that won’t demand much attention. If you’re looking for a pretty kitty with an independent nature, then Flicker may be your purrfect match.

Axel is a fun-loving 1-year-old shepherd mix. He was an owner surrender due to landlord issues. Axel weighs 40 pounds and has a brown coat with some white markings. Axel is friendly and loves to play with other dogs. He is still young and would benefit from obedience training to improve his leash walking and overall attention to his handler. Axel is a smart and handsome fellow with lots of potential, just looking for the right family to give him a second chance at his forever home.

One reason that we often hear for the surrender of a dog or puppy to the humane society is, “he’s just too wild and he won’t listen to me”. This is not the dog’s fault. It is caused by lack of training and leadership from the owner. Puppies are cute and sweet, but as they grow and their energy levels increase, they need to learn acceptable behaviors. Teaching your dog basic commands, socializing him to new people and places, giving consistent discipline plus plenty of exercise will yield a well-mannered and balanced dog. The result is a happy dog and a happy owner.

To help keep dogs and puppies in their homes and also help our recent adopters get off to a good start, the DBCHS offers a monthly introductory obedience class. Our next class is this Saturday at 12:30 p.m. The class is held inside the service department at the Stuart Powell Ford Dealership on the 127 Danville Bypass. If you would like to attend please pre-register for the class by emailing dbchs@bellsouth.net or you may call the Humane Society at (859) 238-1117. Space is limited so please sign up by Friday at noon. We hope to see you on Saturday!

Low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter surgery is available for pet owners with low and fixed incomes. Call our Happy Paws Clinic today at (859) 691-1137 for an appointment. Please help control pet over-population by having your pet spayed or neutered.
