Barely Used Pets (dog)

Here is our Beagle girl Maddie. She is 4 years old, spayed, up to date on her vaccinations and has been flea-treated and wormed. She is house- and crate-trained. Maddie loves her cage and bed. She is good with other dogs, but uncomfortable around small children. She is a very quiet beagle and doesn’t mind getting a pedicure. If you are looking for a nice companion, this girl is for you.

PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Sugar Bean is the shelter’s longest stay. She has been with us for 7 years. Don’t know why because she’s full of personality and is so beautiful. She is an 8-1/2 year-old female domestic short-haired cat. Sugar Bean says, “It’s time you come meet me. I’m up to date on my vaccinations, I’m already spayed and I can’t wait to meet you.”
