Oreo is our special dog of the month. Just like April, he is blooming with new tricks. Only a couple years old, this bright Chihuahua mix attends Mt. Pawley Tech training school and has a report card that he is so proud of.

Basic commands are a piece of cake, such as sit, down, and go to bed. He also is learning targeting and does well on recall. He is improving on leash walks. Oreo loves to dress up, and also shares the sun with his first love, Sandy. Mealtime is such a treat. Oreo will spin three times for you when he knows the food bowl is coming. He is good with other canines, and just a little bit curious of the felines.

Get double the love during the month of May. Two cats for the price of one! We have several teenagers that still love to play, and many adults who just like to watch the world go by. Cat carrier and litter box included. Their motors are running, and they are ready to go.
