Furry Friend Friday With Arlo!

Arlo

What’s the best way to start off the weekend? With a Furry Friend Friday interview of course!  We’re back with your weekly dose of cuteness, and today the furry friend we got to speak with is Arlo!  He’s a feisty, 6 month-old terrier mix up for adoption at the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem and is patiently waiting for his forever family.

So Arlo, how does a handsome guy like you find himself in a shelter?

Well believe it or not, someone left me tied to a pole!  Can you believe someone would just leave me like that?  Luckily I was found by some nice people and brought to the shelter as a stray.  I was never claimed so now I’m ready to find my new best friend!

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

Running, running, and more running!  I may be small, but these little legs can move!  I’m still a puppy so I have a ton of energy, and I’m very curious so I love to investigate my surroundings.  I also love playing with toys, although I don’t really have a favorite one.

Is there anything that scares you?

Nope, I’m very outgoing and can’t  think of anything that scares me.  I’m kind of known as a tough guy around the shelter, they say I can be fresh but I’m not mean at all, I’ve never bitten anyone I just get mouthy when I want some attention.  I think I’m the boss and want all of your attention for myself!

Is there anything that makes you extra unique?

Even though I’m a terrier, I have very soft fur and my friends at the shelter say I can look like all different kinds of dog breeds depending on my haircut!  I used to have a cut that made me look like a schnauzer, but I think this look is much more “me”.

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

Well first off, I’d say no young kids.  Like I said, some consider me to be fresh, and I also love attention so I don’t want any kids taking that away from me!  I don’t like being bossed around, so I would also need a dog savvy owner that would know how to discipline me.  I’d also love to be with a family that was as active as me, I have so much energy and would love to burn it off at the beach or on a hike!

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

Pets get sick just like people do, I’ve seen it with my own two eyes!  It seems like it would just make sense to have insurance to protect your pet so that if they get hurt or sick they can get the care they need without breaking the bank.

Arlo may be young, but he’s a fast learner!  He knows the value of pet insurance, and how important it can be when it comes to protecting your furry friend!  Call one of our agents today for a free quote and take the first step on the road to protecting your furry friend!

 

 

Furry Friend Friday With Kyle!

kyle furry friend friday

Happy Furry Friend Friday everyone!  We’re back at it and today Kyle was gracious enough to take some time to chat with me.  Kyle is a one year old terrier mix up for adoption at the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, MA.  If you’re looking for your new best friend, look no further!  Kyle has been waiting for his forever home for a while now and is ready to meet his match.

So Kyle I hear that you are not originally from Massachusetts, where were you before you came to the Northeast Animal Shelter?

Well believe it or not I was in a kill shelter in California!  I’m glad I dodged that one, let me tell you!  I was lucky enough to be found by a rescue organization that works with the shelter here in Salem, and they scooped me up and transported me to the East Coast.

Wow what a scary situation, now that you’re safe what is your favorite way to spend the day here?

I love getting to leave my cage!  As long as I’m not in my cage I’m having fun, and I have a lot of energy to burn once I’m not cooped up in there.  I love to go outside and play fetch, that is my favorite game for sure.  After a nice long game, I like to curl up in the closest lap I can find!  I’m only 8 pounds so I’m the perfect lap dog!  My friends that work at the shelter take me outside with them sometimes and rub me while we get some fresh air, I love doing that especially now that the beautiful weather is here.

Do you have a favorite toy here?

Well as I said fetch is my favorite game, so I would have to say my ball is my favorite toy.  If you’ll throw it, I’ll chase it all day!

Is there anything you’re afraid of?

Well the kill shelter in California was a very scary experience, and even though everyone here in Salem is very nice I hate being in my cage.  I get so nervous when I have to go back in, it’s hard not knowing when I’ll get to go out again or play with my friends!  Sometimes I put up a fuss when I have to get back in, but I’m young so how can you blame me?  As long as I’m not in my cage I’m fine, but if my new family wants to crate train me it wouldn’t be as scary.

Since you’re not a fan of your cage you must be pretty excited when you get to go out for walks, do you have a favorite route that you take?

I’m just happy to be out and about and love to go anywhere!  We have a really nice grassy area near the shelter, and I love going over there to sniff and roll around in the grass, especially when it’s sunny!

 Kyle I know you’re young, but why would you want your new family to consider pet insurance for you?

Even though I’m young and healthy, anything can happen!  I’m very careful of course but anything can happen, accidents are accidents for a reason  and even though I don’t plan on getting sick or hurt, I’d want to be protected if something ever happened.

Kyle makes a good point, accidents are accidents for a reason, which is why it is always a good idea to consider pet insurance regardless of your pets age! All of our furry friends deserve the best care possible, so give us a call for a pet insurance quote today!  If you’re interested in meeting Kyle, contact the Northeast Animal Shelter, he would be the perfect companion for an active young couple or family with teenagers!
