Pets of the week
Cochise County Animal Control and the Douglas Animal Shelter currently are holding three dogs that are due to be euthanatized on Feb. 1.
All three of these dogs were seized by Cochise County Animal Control in July of 2012. These dogs were seized on an animal cruelty/neglect case.
They were not provided the food, water, and shelter needed to comply with the law. They have been neglected in the past and deserve a loving home.
All three of them have been in local shelters for seven months.
There owner failed to file the proper paperwork with the courts to get them back.
The red in color Stafford Shire Terrier (aka Pit Bull) is approximately one to two years old. His name is "Soldier."
He is neutered and has all his vaccinations. "Soldier," is a tribute to his name.
Soldier was found tied with a choke chain and no water in July 100 plus degree heat.
He has been able to maintain his loving and trusting personality, even through his trials and tribulations. He has been at the Douglas Animal Shelter for seven months.
Soldier gets along very well with other dogs and is good with children. Soldier would be a great watch dog, as he is not afraid to use his voice and talk to you.
He would be a lap dog if you let him. He is kennel trained and may be house trained (no guarantee), but he does not mess in his kennel.
Soldier will also walk on a leash and has a very mellow personality.
The Douglas Animal Shelter was able to get donations for his vaccinations, but no one would give him a forever home, at no fault of his own.
Soldier's adoption fee is $10 and the shelter staff truly believes, in their hearts, that he is a "ready-made dog." Soldier is at the Douglas Animal Shelter at 2017 N Rogers Ave. Phone number (520) 417-7567.
The medium length haired dog is a female, and thought to be a Shepherd/Retriever mix. Her name is "Daisy."
Daisy is approximately two to three years old, she is spayed and current on vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $10.
She has also been at the shelter for seven months along with Soldier. Daisy has a lot of energy and gets along great with other dogs and kids.
Daisy weighs approximately 55 pounds and she is medium sized.
She may also be house trained (no guarantee); she does not mess in her kennel.
Daisy was also provided donations from the public and shelter staff to get her current on vaccinations.
Daisy gets along well with Soldier and they will play for hours together if you let them.
She loves to be loved on and taken for walks.
Daisy will walk on a leash and would do best in an active home and another dog her size to play with. Daisy is also at the Douglas Animal Shelter.
The white in color dog with the tan spots is named "Sugar."
Sugar is approximately one year old, female, Labrador/Stafford Shire Terrier (aka Pit Bull) mix. Sugar has fought hard for a chance at a forever home.
She came down with Parvo on her eighth day of impound. CCSO paid for Sugar's treatment.
The officer that impounded Sugar went to the shelter every day and treated her, even on the Officer's days off.
Sugar would do best in an active home.
She is house trained. Sugar was in foster care for five months. She did not get along with the smaller dog in the foster home, due to personality conflicts. Sugar did get along well with the two larger, dominant dogs in the home.
Sugar would do best with a larger, neutered dominant male dog. Sugar loves children. She is extremely smart and willing to please. She is engaging and obeys some commands such as, no, sit, down, off the porch, outside, and it's bed time. Sugar walks on a leash as well. Sugar travels extremely well. She will curl up on the front seat and keep you company! If Sugar is in the back seat, she lies down and enjoys the ride. Sugar is at the Benson Animal Shelter, phone number (520) 586-3600.
