Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

The Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL) pet of the week is Buddy, a 9-month-old Beagle/Spaniel mix. He is an owner surrender through no fault of his own. Buddy is high energy, intelligent, loving, and a total love bug. He does well on a leash and is crate trained. Buddy seems to be house-trained, but if not, it won’t take long for him to get the hang of it. He is dog friendly and hasn’t been cat tested, but we can do that for you if you wish. Buddy loves attention from people and would be a great hiking friend. He is neutered, microchipped and current on all vaccinations including, rabies, Bordetella, Bivalent Flu, and Da2PPL. Buddy has been dewormed, heart worm tested negative and is on flea and heart worm prevention.

Barely Used Pets (dog)

My name is Karson. I was a stray in Champaign County and I was picked up by the dog warden. I am a Lab Mix boy and I weigh 48 pounds. I am so glad I am safe and have a belly full of food every day here at Barely Used Pets! I am meeting so many other dogs on the playground. I am about 1 year old, neutered, heartworm free and they say I appear to be house trained. I walk on a leash, but I kind of like to pull so you might want to work with me a little on leash stuff. They are working with me now on it. I get along with the other dogs and didn’t pay any attention to Lollipop, the resident cat. I love people. My adoption fee is $150 and that includes my dog license. Won’t you please come out and see me and maybe we can do a little leash walking. I just need a chance to be happy and safe with my new forever family.
