Furry Friend Friday With Lilly!

lilly

As if Friday’s weren’t exciting enough, today we’re here with Lilly to brighten up your day even more!  This adorable, 7 year-old girl is up for adoption at the Lowell Humane Society, and even though she loves her friends at the shelter she’s ready to find a family of her own!

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

Hmm where should I start? I love playing outside, that’s probably my favorite thing to do.  What?  Did you think that because I’m 7 years old I’d be a couch potato?  I’m still very active and love playing fetch and going for walks!  Now that the weather is warming up, I love laying in the grass and soaking up some sun too.  If I had to choose my all-time favorite thing to do though, it would be to be around my people, I’m a true love bug and really warm up to people once I get to know them!

Since you love to play, do you have a favorite toy?

It’s so hard to choose!  I love all toys but I’d have to say I’m most partial to things I can play fetch with, like balls and frisbees.  Kong toys are also fun, and who doesn’t love those plush squeaky ones?  The only thing is that I tend to chew on my toys, so they have to be sturdy if they’re going to last long around me!

Is there anything that scares you?

I do tend to get nervous around loud noises.  I know I look tough, but I’m a real softie on the inside.  I can also be a little shy around new people, I just like to take my time to get to know new faces but as soon as I warm up to them, I’ll be begging them for belly rubs!

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

Well I really want to find the perfect forever home, and I’ve been here at the shelter for over 2 months now so it’s taking a little longer than I would have hoped.  I do have some specific requirements, such as being the only pet.  I get a little nervous around other dogs and don’t really like small animals like cats.  I would also do best in an adult-only home just because of my size.  Other than that I would really appreciate a quiet home without loud noises that scare me and a home where I can get plenty of exercise.  I know that’s a lot to ask for, but I promise I’m worth it!  Plus I’m fully trained and housebroken, so my family wouldn’t have to deal with puppy antics, I’m way too mature for that.

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

Well I know I’m no expert, but I think that as a pet part of my job is to protect my family, and I hope that they would protect me if I needed it!  Pet insurance seems like a good way to make sure your pets are protected if they ever needed vet care that would otherwise be extremely expensive.

Lilly is a very smart girl, and we couldn’t have said it better ourselves!  Pets are family, and they do their best to protect us so as owners it’s our job to return the favor!  Call one of our agents today for a free pet insurance quote and take the first step in protecting your furry friend!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Furry Friend Friday With Bella!

bella

Happy Furry Friend Friday!  Meet Bella, this little girl is is far too cute to be sitting in a shelter, she’s ready to find her forever family.  She’s a 1 year-old pup up for adoption at the Scituate Animal Shelter so stop by and pay her a visit, she’d love to be your new best friend!

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

I love being outside playing, I can run and run and run!  I’m a very active girl, seeing as I’m still considered a puppy, so if you love to play we’d make a great team!  I love playing with other dogs too, but sometimes I can play a little too rough for some of them, especially if they’re smaller than me.  I’m very friendly when it comes to people too, and all I want is to find someone to go on long walks with and to throw me a ball every now and then, is that so much to ask for?

Do you have a favorite treat?

Funny that you mention that, I actually am on a special diet, and no it’s not because I’m watching my weight, I’m 40 pounds of all muscle!  I’m a pit bull terrier and shar pei mix, and I have shar pei skin which is extra sensitive and is allergic to grains.  Basically I’m on a grain-free diet, it’s not a big deal, I just can’t have any old treat so when I want a snack I get pieces of my special kibble.

Is there anything that scares you?

Nope, nothing I can think of!  I’ve been a very lucky girl and haven’t encountered anything too scary in my days, I just get nervous sometimes that I won’t find my forever family, but I never lose hope!

Bella, what do you think would  be the perfect family for you?

I think I’m a very lovable girl if I do say so myself, and I would be happy to go anywhere, I’m not picky!  My only request is to go with a family that would be able to give me regular exercise so I can burn off all of my energy!  It would probably be best if I were the only pet in the home as well and if I were with children ages 8 and older, not because I don’t like little kids, but because I’m still one myself and sometimes forget my own size and strength.  I wouldn’t want to knock someone down because  I got too excited and wanted to play.

Why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

I mean I know I’m still young and have a lot to learn, but from what I’ve seen so far pet insurance seems like it can only help out in a tough situation.  Isn’t it better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your furry friends?  After all, we think of you as family so we hope you think the same of us!

Bella’s right, anyone that has owned and loved their pet does consider them family, so they should be protected like it!  Pet insurance is an affordable way to make sure if your pet needs emergency vet care, they have access to it, without breaking the bank!  Call one of our agents today for a free pet insurance quote and take the first step in protecting your furry friend!

 

 

 

 

 

Furry Friend Friday With Rory!

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 Woodrow!

woodrow

We’re back with another Furry Friend Friday interview!  Today I got to chat with Woodrow, a 1 year-old pit bull mix up for adoption at the Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society in Springfield.  This cutie is very friendly but has been looking for his forever home for a while now, so if you’re looking for a new best friend be sure to stop by and pay Woodrow a visit!

Hi Woodrow!  I’m glad you were able to sit down with me, what do you usually do for fun during the day?

Well I love being around people and getting petted, it’s my absolute favorite thing!  I also have a lot of energy, so I love playing outside in the yard.  I’m really lucky because I get to spend some time in foster care, and don’t even have to stay in the shelter (not that it’s bad, it’s just too much for me)!  I get to play outside in the back yard, and the neighbors even have a dog that I get to play with!

What about toys?  Do you have any favorites?

I have a lot that come to mind, I’m a very lucky guy and have a lot of toys to choose from!  I really love squeaky toys and rope toys, I like playing tug of war and love the sounds the squeaky toys make and chasing them around.  Another favorite of mine are Nylabones, they’re like a snack and a toy combined because I can chew on them and they keep me entertained for a while.

Is there anything that you’re afraid of?

Not really, I’m a pretty tough pup!  I was found as a stray and picked up by animal control, and the Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society was nice enough to give me a chance!  I learned a lot from my time on the streets and saw some crazy stuff, but none of it phased me at all!  Even though I’m a big lovebug I don’t scare easy!

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

Well, I think a family that has experience with dogs would be great.  I’m still a young pup and have more to learn, but I’m very smart and pick things up quickly!  I love kids but because I’m so big and have so much energy I would probably be better off in a home with older kids.  I could even go to a home with another dog, as long as I get to meet them first!  No cats though, they’re too much fun to chase!

When it comes to pet insurance, why do you think it’s a good idea for all pet parents to consider?

Well when I was out on the streets, I saw a lot of stuff and I was lucky enough to be found unharmed but there were a lot of dangerous things out there!  Between cars, fleas, ticks, and more, there were a lot of things that could have put me in danger!  That’s just my own experience though, I’m sure other pets can find ways to get into trouble that may wind them up in the vet’s office, and those bills can add up quickly!

Woodrow is a pretty smart pup, and is so right about the everyday dangers that come face to face with our pets!  Pet insurance is a great way to make sure your pets, and your wallet are protected in the event of any accidents, call one of our agents today for a free quote!

Furry Friend Friday With Yaya!

yaya

Here we are again at the end of another work week and you know what that means, Furry Friend Friday!  Meet Yaya, an 8 month old lab/pit bull mix up for adoption at the Sterling Animal Shelter who has been waiting to find a new home since May!

So Yaya, what is your favorite thing to do during the day?

Well I love being with people more than anything! My friends here at the shelter describe me as “very loyal” because I would be happy to just sit at your feet while you work or watch TV just so I can be near you!  Other than hanging out with people, I love being out and about so I can burn off all of the energy I have!  Afterwards, I enjoy a nice long nap.  The staff here all think I am so funny because every time I fall asleep I roll onto my back and sleep with all paws in the air.

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

Usually I get to go out with the volunteers for a walk every day which I love.  We usually just go down the street a ways and if not we get to play outside in the pen behind the shelter.  I must admit that as a Tennessee girl (I was rescued and brought up to the Bay State!) I don’t really care where I’m going as long as I have my people by my side!

What about a favorite treat?

How can I pick one favorite when there are so many options to choose from? I will really eat anything I can get, I’m not picky when it comes to food.

Is there anything you would want your future family to know about you?

Well the only thing is that I would rather go to a home without other dogs or small children.  I love the spotlight and but don’t love when someone tries to steal it from me, I want to be the only apple of your eye!

Yaya, why do you think all pet parents should consider insurance for their furry friend?

Well if you ask me, if you adopt a pet you should be able to take care of it.  The vet’s office can get expensive, and fast so why wouldn’t you want pet insurance to make it more affordable?

Yaya makes a lot of good points!  All pet parents should have the means to properly care for their pet, and that includes their health care.  Protect your furry friend like you would any other member of your family and give us a call at MassDrive for a pet insurance quote today!

 

 

A Very Special Furry Friend Friday!

peachie

Happy Furry Friend Friday!  We’re back today with a very special interview, typically we feature furry friends that are pets of our employees, but today we took a different approach.  We contacted the Lowell Humane Society to see if they had any animals that would be willing to sit down with me, and lucky enough I got to sit down with Peachie!  Peachie is a two and a half year old girl up for adoption at the Lowell Humane Society, she is house trained and very sweet!

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

I love going for walks!  It’s my favorite thing to do and lately I have even been doing some nose work training!  I’ve been smelling different things and am getting better and better each day, and when I go for walks there are so many different things for me to explore.  I also love getting my belly rubbed, I am a real cuddler!

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

Well usually I get to go outside in the play yard or across the street and walk along the Merrimack River, it’s really beautiful but I have been here at the shelter for a while so would like to find my forever home and go on a lot more adventures!  I’m sure there must be a lot of other smells to experience out there and I have a lot of energy!

Do you have a favorite toy?

My favorite toy is my squeaky rabbit, I love the noise it makes every time I chew on it!  I also love marrow bones!  They are my favorite treat but are also kind of like a toy, I can chew on those things for hours.

As a pit bull mix you look very tough, but is there anything that scares you?

Well looks can be deceiving, even though I am a pit bull mix I am still a gentle girl, although I do have some anxiety.  I get along with most people, but sometimes certain people make me very nervous, I would never bite them but sometimes I bark at them.  I would be best off in a home where I am the only pet with adults only, because I have anxiety, other animals and kids sometimes make me nervous.

Peachie why would you recommend getting pet insurance?

Well pet insurance is always good to have just in case anything ever happens to me, or any pet.  Accidents happen and even young dogs such as myself can have issues.  I am healthy as a horse right now, but you never know what can happen in the future.  Think about it, humans have health insurance, why shouldn’t pets?  We have to go to the vets just like humans go to the doctors, so why not pay a little throughout the year instead of having to pay a large fee upfront?

Peachie is a very smart girl, she realizes that pet insurance is extremely important for any pet owner!  If you’re interested in getting a quote for your furry friend, call us at MassDrive!

Peachie is a very cute and unique girl, she would make a wonderful pet for a young, active adult or couple.  Peachie has been looking for her forever home for a while, would you be willing to open your heart  to a new best friend?  If you’re interested in adopting Peachie contact the Lowell Humane Society.
