Austin Pets Alive! Pet of the Week: George

Looking for a new cat to take home? Meet George!

George

George is the perfect cat! He loves to play, explore, and get tons of affection from people. He’ll flop over in your arms to be held like a baby, and he adores snuggling in your lap. He’s so intriguingly handsome too, from the top of his black and white, fur toupee to the end of his fluffy, soft tail.

George is very outgoing and so playful; he has an amusing way of hitting toys long distances and then chasing after them. His scratching behavior is refined and proper, and, though he can be a little fidgety with nail trimming, he’s cooperative about his kitty mani-pedis overall. George loves other cats and given his high level of activity and affection, he would also do well with children and cat-friendly dogs.

George would be an engaging addition to most any home. Surround him with attentive and loving people and he’ll be one happy cat. George is the whole kitty package…meet this super guy today!

APA! Pet of the Week: Bock

Looking for a new dog to take home? Meet Bock!

Bock

Good looks? Good manners? Good fetching skills? Check, check, check!

Sleek bullet Bock has the focus and determination to fetch for hours. He loves to carry his ball around in his mouth, and sometimes if you’re not fast enough with the next one, he’ll ARWOOF around the ball. He’s almost got the drop command mastered, so the fun never has to end.

Don’t worry, Bock has a softer side too. As soon as you call him over, he’s all wiggles and back scratches. He loves to snuggle after a full day of fetch, so get comfortable!

Bock loves learning. He’s happy to hang up his ball for a little bit while he’s learning the finer points of obedience. He already knows sit and down and drop (most of the time). And his leash walking skills are on point. He loves treats so much, he’s happy to trot alongside his person while being rewarded with treats for his awesome eye contact.

Don’t miss out on the gorgeous dog. Bock is all retriever and will reward long days of fetching with companionship.

Sex: Male
Breed: Terrier, American Pitbull, Retriever, Labrador
Age: 3 Years
Weight: 58 pounds
