Hello, my name is Eve! I am a 5-year-old, 75-pound Lab/Great Dane mix. I am a gentle, calm girl. I walk nicely on a leash and am friendly. Every once in a while I like to run and play, but for the most part I'm very laid-back. I am well-behaved and housebroken. I get along great with other dogs and kids. Come meet me any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL!
Hi, my name is Fuzz Lightyear! I am a 1-year-old long hair cat. I am a sweet guy who is new to the shelter. If I get a little overwhelmed, I just burrow under my blanket and hang out there for a little while. But I am friendly and I like getting attention. I have the cutest little quiet meow. Come meet me any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL!
