Bella "no no" Kirkus is our 6 month old Hound/Lab mix. We rescued her from a shelter when she was 5 weeks old. She loves the water!

I don't know if Bella was trying to tell me that her tennis balls needed cleaned or if she was asking me to flush them and get new ones. She is so funny and cute, she looks so innocent.

Elvis is 1 1/2 years old and a hound mix. He was a rescue. He likes to play with his stuffed toys. Elvis does not look like a hound but he sure has the hound howl
Your Pet's Age
Your Pet's Breed
How and when did you get your pet?
Catfish was rescued at 6 weeks from the road. All of my dogs are adopted; I live in the country and many cruel and/or ignorant people dump unwanted dogs here. We fatten them up because they're usually starved, take them to our vet for wellness exams and shots, and then foster them until we can find them good homes. Occasionally one will stay, Catfish won the lottery!
What does your pet like to do for fun?
Catfish chases the birds who try to share his dogfood. He will run through the yard chasing them as they fly away. He has a big dog-family, between my house and my mom's, and loves to chase and outrun everyone else. He runs a lot like a horse! He also likes to play with rocks...not sure about that boy sometimes.
Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
Catfish is slightly brain-damaged, most likely from inbreeding, and is very slow to learn or understand things, but so worth the extra time, patience, and training he requires, because he is one of the most loving dogs I've ever had. He will not kiss anyone, but will hug you by pressing his shoulder firmly against you. Catfish is a very good boy, and we are so blessed to have him in our lives!
