Are you looking to bring a pet into your home? Local animal shelters are a great place to find a furry companion. So, as part of Furry Tails, I’ll be doing an ongoing feature on adoptable pets from local animal shelters once a week. If you have room in your heart and are looking to bring a lovable ball of fur into your home, maybe one of these guys is meant to be a part of your family!

Animal Friends

Watch video of Stallone here:

This spirited and enthusiastic big guy is looking for a forever family that will give him structure and keep him active! If he sounds right for your family, he’s currently waiting for a loving home at Animal Friends.

Animal Friends says:
“Have you been searching for the next great action hero? Then meet Stallone! This energetic 11-month-old pup is looking for a dog-savvy home that can give him lots of love and attention. He was originally brought in with his litter last February as a transfer from another shelter. Since his original debut at Animal Friends, he is hoping to find a new home that will help him grow up into a wonderful companion.

“Upon his return to Animal Friends, Stallone spent some time in a foster home, learning the ropes with his foster family. He loves meeting new people, especially when they ask him to show off his skills for treats. At this point, Stallone has not learned to share very well, and can become very protective of his favorite toys or food. His new family will need to help work with him in order for him to learn how to share! He is looking for a home with adults or older kids where he can continue to learn good manners.

“Stallone wouldn’t mind living with another dog, but it would be important that his new canine family member enjoy his high-energy antics. He is unable to live with cats. If you are looking for an active and smart addition to your family, please stop on by to meet his action star today!”

Stallone has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

For more information on how you can adopt any of the pets at Animal Friends, visit their website here! They are located at 562 Camp Horne Road, Pittsburgh, Pa. 15237. And can be reached at 412-847-7002.

If you’re looking for a playful friend to add to your family, Delray may be just the handsome guy for you! Frisky but well-mannered, he’s waiting for his forever family at the Animal Rescue League.

The Animal Rescue League says:
“Meet Delray, an American pit bull terrier mix who is a little over 2-years-old. He came to the Animal Rescue League as a stray who was transferred in from another local shelter that ran out of space. He has been looking for a new family since early July. Black pit bulls often sit at shelters longer than other dogs. We’re not sure how people keep walking by this handsome face!

“Delray is a very playful and wiggly boy who is also well-mannered and already knows some commands like ‘sit.’ He LOVES the sand box and playing with toys. Squeaky toys and big balls are his favorites for sure! He is social with other dogs, too. This boy pulls on leash if he wants to see something, but otherwise walks like a dream!

“We think Delray would make an excellent family pet, even for the first-time dog-owner. If you think he may be a great fit for your household, do stop down to meet him soon!”

Delray is neutered, up-to-date on his vaccinations and microchipped.
