Hello, my name is Louise! I am a 3-year-old Terrier/Beagle mix. Don't let my skull sweater scare you -- I am a sweet and gentle girl. I am friendly and get along well with other dogs, cats and kids. I know some commands, like "sit," "shake," and "down." (Although I am more consistent about doing them if there are treats involved.) I am housebroken, too! You can come meet me any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL!
Hello, my name is Cougar. I am a fun and friendly 2-year-old cat. I came to the APL with my kitten. I did a great job raising him and now it's time for me to find my forever home! I am a cat with a big personality. I like to get affection, and I'll roll over and curl up near you to get it. But whenever anybody closes my cage and stops petting me, I "boop" them through the bars. You can come meet me any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL!
