Weekly Wag from the Humane Society of Burnett County

Rowdy is a dark brown and white two-year-old Mastiff mix that came to HSBC as a stray.  He is a very loving and gentle guy who takes treats nicely.  Rowdy is also very smart and eager to learn new things, and he already knows how to sit. True to his breed, Rowdy is a lot of dog - weighing in at a mere 101 pounds!  He is still a bit of a youngster, so he will need some space to burn off some energy.  Rowdy would also be a great walking partner and could even learn to carry a backpack of water snacks for your hikes.  

Shep is also looking for a buddy.  Shep is a brown and tan shepherd mix who is a medium-sized 55 pounds or so.  This two-year-old boy is very sweet, aims to please and doesn't seem to mind other dogs too much.  Shep is also good with kids, knows sit, and is eager to learn more.  He likes his treats, but he likes to be with people more! Shep is another active guy and would be great at agility or nosework or any activity that could engage his brain while he exercises.   

Did you know Aug. 17 is Black Cat Appreciation Day? As you may have guessed, HSBC has several residents who fit that description (the last count was nine, but that changes daily).  To get some of these guys and gals loving homes, HSBC is running a Black Cat Appreciation Event.  On Friday, Aug. 17 and Saturday, Aug. 18, you can adopt a feline friend of the darker persuasion for half the regular adoption fee. If you are interested, the shelter requests that you fill out an application as soon as possible.  They would love to send their little black charges home on their special day.
