Furry Friend Friday With Rory!

Friday wouldn’t be complete without a Furry Friend Friday interview!  Am I right?  Rory certainly thinks so!  This girl is about 2 years old and is a pit bull/hound mix up for adoption at the Scituate Animal Shelter.  She’s been there for about a month and is looking for a family that likes to have fun that she can call her own.

So Rory, what’s your favorite way to spend the day?

Well I have A LOT of energy, I’m still a young girl after all and I love being outside playing.  We have a fenced in yard here at the shelter and even get to go for walks on the nearby trails!  That’s always fun.  I also love other dogs, they’re so much fun to play with!  I have been told that I play a little rough though, it’s not on purpose I’m just a bigger, athletic girl and I forget my own strength sometimes.  After a day of playing I love to snuggle with my people and relax.

Do you have a favorite toy or treat?

I love all toys and treats, I don’t discriminate!  You should see the toy basket I have here at the shelter, I think I have more toys than anyone else!

Is there anything that scares you?

Do I look like I’m scared of anything?  Only kidding, even big, tough dogs like me can be afraid!  Nothing really comes to mind, the only thing that makes me nervous is the thought that I will never find my forever family, I really hope they show up soon!

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

A family that loves to play!  I would love to go with a family that is active like me, and a fenced in yard would probably be best.  I’m good with other dogs and teenagers, don’t get me wrong, I love little kids but as I said, sometimes I forget my own strength when I’m playing and I wouldn’t want to accidentally knock over a little one!  I am very well mannered and know a lot of commands, I would be a great family pet when someone gives me the chance!

Rory, why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

Well, people get hurt or sick unexpectedly, and pets can too.  If humans didn’t have insurance, the doctor’s office would be very expensive, and it’s the same with pets and the vet.  We may not be able to pay for it ourselves, but if you cover us we’ll pay you back by being your best friend!

Pets are our best friends, and are part of the family, so they should be protected like every family member.  Pet insurance will make sure that your pets can get the health care they need when the time comes, without breaking the bank.  Call one of our agents for a free pet insurance quote and take the first step on the road to protecting your furry friend!

 

 

 

 

Furry Friend Friday With Penny!

penny

Happy Furry Friend Friday everyone!  Meet Penny, this three year-old hound is up for adoption through Greyhound Friends, Inc under their “Hound Friends” section.   This cutie hasn’t had the easiest life so far, she was picked up as a stray in Kentucky and brought to a shelter there before she was transported up to Massachusetts.  She has been with Greyhound Friends for a few months now and is ready for her fur-ever home!  Greyhound Friends is also home to Bolt, who I interviewed a few weeks ago.  Bolt would be the perfect dog for an older couple or family with young children, read more about him here.

So Penny, what is your favorite way to spend the day?

Well, as a hound I have a very strong nose and love to use it!  Getting outside and out and about is one of my favorite things to do, and I love playing with other dogs as well!  I’m a very active girl and have a lot of energy so I need to find a way to burn it off or I’ll go stir-crazy!

Do you have a favorite place to go for a walk?

Well here at the shelter they have an entire fenced in acre where we can all run around! That’s all I’ve known for the most part since I’ve arrived here in Massachusetts and I’m hoping that once I find my family they will take me on a lot of adventures so I can learn my way around and find all the most happening spots.

What about a favorite treat or toy?

I LOVE pieces of chicken!  That’s by far my favorite snack ever and usually I just get a few small pieces but I would eat a whole rotisserie chicken if I had the chance!  In terms of toys, I enjoy playing with frisbees a lot!  I’m very quick and some say I would even make a great agility dog!

Do you have any fears?

Not really, when I was out on my own on the mean streets of Kentucky I got pretty tough.  I had to learn to fend for myself and came across a few scary situations but got through them and now nothing can scare me!

What would be the perfect home for you?

Well since I am so young and active I would enjoy being with a young couple who likes to go on hikes or runs.  I would also love a family with older children that can play with me and goof off, or even a home with another dog to play with.  I’m a very good girl and know all of my commands, am house trained, and quite good looking if you ask me!

Penny why do you think pet insurance is so important for all pet parents?

Well anything can happen in life, which I have seen first hand so it’s better to be prepared for the unexpected!  As pets we can’t help ourselves if we become sick so we rely on our owners to take care of us, and sometimes our vet bills can be very expensive so pet insurance can make sure we are protected while saving you tons of dough!

Penny is right, pets rely on their owners to get them the help they cannot get for themselves.  When you adopt a pet, their health becomes your responsibility, protect them like you would any other family member and call us for a pet insurance quote today!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Furry Friend Friday With Bolt!

Bolt

We’re back with another Furry Friend Friday interview! Today I got to chat with Bolt, a 7 year old beagle up for adoption through Greyhound Friends, Inc under their “Hound Friends” section.  Bolt is a quiet older gentleman that came to Massachusetts all the way from Kentucky!  He’s looking for a quiet forever home where he can enjoy his golden years.

So Bolt, what is your favorite way to spend the day?

Well I’m pretty quiet so I like to lounge around and watch the world go by from a comfy spot inside.  I do like to go out for walks though, but in general I am pretty laid back.  I can be a little shy around new people, but once I get to know someone I love to spend time with them and cuddle, I’m a big love bug!

 That sounds fun, do you have a favorite place to go for a walk when you do go out?

Well the kennels are near a few acres of land so I love going out near the tree line, the woods are my favorite!  As a beagle, I have a very strong sense of smell and can track for miles.  The woods have so many different sights and smells, I love it and I love going with Ruthie, she’s another hound here at the kennel and is my best friend, but I get along with everyone here.

Do you have a favorite treat that you like to snack on?

The original Milkbones are my favorite by far,  can’t go wrong with the classic!

Is there anything you’re afraid of?

Well loud noises make me very nervous.  Traffic is a good example, I can’t stand the sound of those car horns!

Bolt, why would you recommend pet insurance to all pet owners?

Well life has a lot of unexpected twists and turns.  After being in a home for years, I never thought my owner would move to Hawaii and leave me behind, but it’s just another one of life’s unexpected occurrences.  I like to believe everything happens for a reason and now I’m here in Massachusetts waiting to start my new life!  Never in a million years would I have ever dreamed of leaving the south, so who knows what else could happen down the line.  All pet parents should be prepared for anything, especially health-related!

Bolt is right!  Life does have a lot of unexpected twists and turns, and accidents or illnesses aren’t usually something you plan on.  Protect your furry friend and call us at MassDrive for a pet insurance quote today! If you are interested in adopting Bolt, contact Greyhound Friends, Inc.  They are also hosting their annual Open House this weekend, both Saturday and Sunday from 12-4 PM where you will get a chance to meet Bolt as well as many other great dogs up for adoption, and even a few Patriots players!
