Pets of the Week: The Twins & Smooch
Wila and Selma or "The Twins" are two gorgeous 10-month-old Tuxedo sisters who are bonded and must go to a home together. One look at how they sleep, curled up tightly together in the same bed, and you'd never want to separate them anyway. They've graduated from the kitten stage but are still outgoing and playful. The Twins also enjoy being held, carried, and receiving belly rubs. Like most siblings, one is more outgoing than the other and Wila, who can be recognized by the tiny patch of white between her eyes, is the more adventurous of the two. Together, they are friendly and social in a home environment and adore anyone who wields a feather wand toy. Wila and Selma would be perfect for first-time adopters, someone who works long hours as they keep each other entertained or a family with younger children since they are very non-aggressive.

Smooch is a nine month old Terrier-Pug mix with a loving personality. He bonds with people quickly and loves to tag-along with his favorites. Smooch is a small-sized dog who would be happy in an apartment or home, gets along with cats, other dogs (once he has a little time for introductions) and children, making this adorable puppy a great choice for families.
To meet The Twins or Smooch, visit the Sante D'or Adoption Center Fridays-Sundays noon to 5pm or for an appointment email firstname.lastname@example.org.
