Paws up to Summer, the shepherd who forgot it was winter and went for walk. She has been reunited, and is safe and at home. As well as to Buffy, the Lab, who just stepped out briefly.

Missing: an orange male tabby cat lost Thursday in Alderwood-Jameson area. Please call ARF at 659-1122.

Lucky is a young male Shitzu-dachshund, mix just looking for love. He is learning social skills daily and does well with other four-leggeds. Cuddling in your lap or under the blankets are his favorite pastimes.

Isis, also known as Sissy, is an adult female Maine coon mix. She loves to be held and is good with other cats. Meet Sissy in the ARF cattery as she perches on her favorite pillow looking very proper. She is an indoor only cat, very sweet, lovable and likes to cuddle. She is good with small dogs and children and although she has been an only cat, she is fitting in very well with Blackjack and Mrs. Magoo in the ARF cattery.

This is Tucker. He is the latest canine resident of Arf! This little boy is a basenji-Chihuahua mix, who turned one on March 15 of this year. He is good with other playful dogs, cats and children, good on the leash, and ready for a lifetime of love.
