Pet of the week for December 14, 2015

Looking for a new pet? Check out Nashville’s News 2’s “Pet of the Week” segment every Tuesday on News 2 This Morning. Below are this week’s featured pets:

ID: A124020
Name: Cocoa
Breed: pit bull
Gender: Female
Age: 1 yrs. 2 mos.

My name is Cocoa. I am a spayed female, brown brindle Pit Bull Terrier mix. The shelter staff think I am about 1 year and 2 months old. My last family could not have me anymore because they were moving. I am great at hanging out with kids and living with other dogs. I love people and being around them. Going for walks is another one of my favorite things. When  I go on walks I try to make friends with all the people I see.

ID: A124834
Name: Shuggy Bear
Breed: pit bull
Gender: Female
Age: 2 yrs.

My name is SHUGGY BEAR. I am a spayed female, brown brindle Pit Bull Terrier mix. The shelter staff think I am about 2 years and 1 month old. There have not been many dogs as sweet as me. I’m fine with a short sprint but then I’m likely to stop, drop and roll over for a good belly rub. I LOVE belly rubs. And giving kisses. So if you’re not into that sort of thing, we’re probably not the best match. But if you want a great snuggle buddy to keep you warm on the couch this winter, I’m your girl.

ID: A124129
Name: Dutch
Breed: Border collie mix
Gender: Male
Age: 1 yrs. 7 mos.

My name is Dutch. I am a neutered male, brown and white Border Collie and Pit Bull Terrier. The shelter staff think I am about 1 year and 7 months old. I love going outside and running around. I would really like to find a family that spend a lot of time being active. If that is you come on down to the shelter and lets hang out!

ID: A124678
Name: Mr. Pickles
Breed: Domestic Short hair
Gender: Male
Age: 4 yrs.

My name is MR. PICKLES. I am a neutered male, black and white Domestic Shorthair. The shelter staff think I am about 4 years old. With a name like Mr. Pickles you know I have to be cool. I spend a lot of my time right now hanging out with MACC volunteers and cuddling. I love when they use the laser pointers to play. I would say my favorite flavor for treats is chicken. Come on down to the shelter while fees are waived and see if I am the guy for you!

ID: A124959
Name: Sassy
Breed: Domestic Short hair
Gender: Female
Age: 10 yrs.

My name is SASSY.  I am a spayed female, tortie Domestic Shorthair. The shelter staff think I am about 10 years old. I am one of the prettiest cats I’ve ever met. I mostly like to lay around. Even though I am ten I have another ten years ahead of me. I really like playing with toys that have catnip in them. I also love to eat treats!

Anyone interested in adopting one of these pets is urged to contact Metro Animal Care and Control at 615-862-7928.
