UPDATE: 1/5/11 Max has been adopted and Tippy had to be put down due to an illness she was just not able to recover from.
At the Effingham County Animal Shelter there are great dogs there that are waiting for their new fur-ever home. After the assessment that was done recently by Dena Stapleton, this is what she had to say about them and what kind of dog they are.
Max is a hound/aussie mix. He is an adorable blue eyed fur-baby that is looking to put his baby blues to work on you. Once you see him you will fall in love with him. He does need some obedience training to learn his basic commands and to learn leash manners. He does pull a bit on the leash but not extremely bad. He seems to get along with other dogs and is passive in general. He may be a little skittish in his kennel but opens up once you get him out. He loves to play and really goes crazy for treats. Won’t you bring him some when you come by to see him?
Tippy is a senior pit bull. She has a cataract in her left eye, but it does not hinder her from doing anything. Even though she may be older, she still loves to play. She does wall very well on a leash but does not know any commands. Her previous owner did not teach any to her. Since she is a senior, she is very calm and loves to cuddle up to you while you’re sitting on the floor. She just needs a wonderful home to live out her golden years in the comfort of a home.
“Max was a delight to be around, and those eyes were mesmerizing. He was a good dog all around, just needs a little polishing. Tippy was such a sweetie, it’s just a shame someone would cut off all of her ears except to leave just the tips. Thus her name”, said Dena Stapleton.
Effingham County Animal Services adopts dogs and cats from their facility. Dog and puppies are $45. Cats and kittens are $35. If the dog or cat has not been spayed or neutered, it will be the adopters’ responsibility. This responsibility will be checked up upon and must be validated by the adopters’ veterinarian. If it is not done within 30 days from the adoption date, the adopter faces a fine.
