DBCHS Pets of the week, August 21

Published 6:26 pm Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Our featured pets for this week are Maxine and Bella.



Maxine is a beautiful orange tabby that was found as a stray. She appears to be a young adult and she’s a friendly girl, so she possibly had a home and wandered a bit too far. Maxine enjoys having her ears and chin rubbed and will talk to you with a little purr and meow. Otherwise, she’s a quiet girl and she’d love to have a chance at her forever home. Come meet this pretty feline and see if she’s the purrfect match for your family.

Bella is a sweet black and white mixed breed. She looks like she may be part lab and part Border Collie. Bella weighs about 50 pounds and is 1- to 2-years-old. She was a stray, but her owner has not been found. Bella does pretty well on a leash and wants to please, so she should be a quick learner. Bella has now been spayed and received her other vetting. She is ready to make a fresh start in a loving home. If you’re looking for a kind dog, with lots of potential, plan a visit with pretty Bella.
