Xanos came into the shelter with a broken leg after being hit by a car. We got him to the vet ASAP and his leg was put in a cast. He has had multiple casts and bandages during his time at the shelter to find what worked for him and he is now cast free! His leg will always be a little crooked because of his injury and he may have a slight limp, but that doesn’t slow him down at all! Xanos will need to be on a joint supplement for the rest of his life to help keep his joints in tip top shape. He will also need regular walks because he’s an active guy. Xanos is about 2 years old and slowly getting back to using the leg that was broken. He has to work up to being allowed to run so that he does not injure himself by overdoing it. Xanos has been a great boy throughout his recovery and has a deep love for peanut butter! He also just wants to be with people and everyone he sees. Because of his energy level, he may be too much for small children, so an age restriction may apply. Xanos also seems a bit too interested in cats, so a home without cats would be best for him and he will require a fenced yard. Do you have the right spot for this cute boy?

Kimmie and Mia

Kimmie and Mia came into the shelter because their owner had to go into a nursing home. The two are 7-year-old gray girls who love each other and find comfort in each other and have never been apart. We want to keep them together because we think it’s best for them. Mia doesn’t care to be picked up too much. Kimmie is the more outgoing of the two and loves to play with toys. Could you help these two sisters not have to split up?
