Kurt, a 3-year-old male mixed breed, put everyone at FAMD under his spell the moment he walked in. Kurt is a lover who excitedly plays with toys and balls, and knows basic commands such as sit, shake and down. He’s so excited to make friends that he pulls a bit on his leash. Shelter evaluators think he’ll do best in an active home with children over 8 years old.
Arizona, a 1-year-old female domestic shorthair, likes her “blankie.” She’s very timid and likes to burrow down and hide in it. Given time and love, she should grow more confident and adventurous.
Portia, a 6-year-old female Himalayan, is a breed rarely at FAMD. She is bright and alert, but likes to go slow and steady. If she’s afraid or pushed too far, she’ll let you know. Low voices and slow handling are the way to go with Portia.
