Pick of the Litter: Olivia

LaylaOlivia

Each month we feature an adoptable pet chosen as a favorite by a CBHS staff member or volunteer.  This month’s “Pick of the Litter” is Olivia, chosen by CBHS Adoption Counselor, Layla Hagen.

“Olivia is my ‘Pick of the Litter’ because I have loved watching her open up here at the shelter. I chose the name Olivia for her.  When she first came in as a stray, she was so shy and scared. She opened up to me more and more each time I took her out of her kennel.  Now she recognizes me and immediately gives me kisses and lays down for a belly rub.  She definitely has my heart!”

Olivia is available for adoption at the Cedar Bend Humane Society.  You can visit her in our “puppy room” where she likes to greet, and offer kisses to passersby.  Olivia’s adoption profile can be viewed here.  Come give this special girl a second chance and change her life forever!

This month’s “Pick of the Litter” has been chosen by CBHS Adoption Counselor, Jess Foelske

Jess and Dixie

“The pet I am absolutely in love with is Dixie, our American Staffordshire Terrier/Lab mix!  She is such a sweet, affectionate girl that will lick your face right off if given the chance!! Dixie was brought into the shelter in February after being hit by a car.  Her pelvis was broken.  After months of therapy and recuperation, she has made a full recovery. She definitely loves her “people food” and will do almost anything for a tasty treat.   Dixie can be “dog selective,” but she is doing much better around other dogs than when she first came in.   Unfortunately, she is NOT a cat lover either.  Dixie is so intelligent, will sit on command, and instantly catch a treat mid-air! And don’t even get me started about those perfect, puppy dog eyes of hers. I’ve come to love and appreciate Dixie for her outgoing, charismatic personality.  I still find it hard to believe that she is currently our longest dog resident!”

“Why do I love Kona? Well, she is absolutely amazing with any human being, especially kids (her maternal instinct is beautiful). She wants to be by your side and give you kisses every chance she can. She is a great walking buddy, and is extremely smart! Kona would make a great snuggle bug for anyone, especially a family with children. She has been at the shelter for way too long. An amazing dog like her deserves a second, loving chance at life with a deserving family!”

This month’s “Pick of the Litter” has been chosen by CBHS Adoption Counselor, Rhiannon Gors.  Rhiannon chose Lenny, a 4-year-old pit bull.

RiRi

“I picked Lenny because he is honestly one of the sweetest dogs I have ever met.  Pit bulls have such a bad rep, but I know that if anyone spent just 30 seconds with Lenny, they would see how wonderful pit bulls can be.  Lenny is such a happy dog.  Nothing bothers him. Whoever adopts him will be the luckiest family in the world!”
