Furry Friend Friday With Daisy!


We’re back with another cutie to make your Friday afternoon that much better!  Meet Daisy, she’s certainly as cute as a daisy if you ask us!  This little girl is a 2 year-old hound mix up for adoption at the Sterling Animal Shelter and has been there for about a month now, so she’s been waiting a while for the perfect family!

So Daisy, what do you like to do for fun?

I’m just your typical pup, I like the simple things like long walks where I can take in the smells and sounds of the great outdoors, playing ball, and hanging out with my favorite people.  I’m very affectionate and love getting extra attention and belly rubs!

Do you have a favorite toy you like to play with?

I’d have to say my ball, I love chasing it and it’s so bouncy!  Like I said, I’m pretty simple and can be happy doing just about anything.

Is there anything that you’re afraid of?

Nope!  There isn’t much that can make this girl nervous, my previous owners thought that I was a little nervous around men, but I haven’t been afraid of any of the men I’ve met here at the shelter.

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

Well, if I could choose, I would love to go to a home with people that would take me on a lot of walks!  I would say I have a medium activity level, so I’m not very hyper but I still like to be out and about whenever possible.  Other than that, I would say I would do best in an adult-only home, it’s not that I don’t like kids, just because of my size I wouldn’t want to accidentally knock them over or anything.  The other thing is that I would be best as an only pet, I don’t really get along with cats, come on, can you blame me?  When it comes to other dogs I don’t mind them but I would still prefer to be the only pet so I can have all of the attention!

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

Well I know I’m young, and I’ve been lucky enough to be healthy and accident-free so far, but other pets aren’t as lucky.  Some pets can eat the wrong thing, or come down with an ear infection, there are tons of different things that can land your furry friend in the vet’s office, and land you with a huge bill.  Pet insurance sounds like a good way to prevent a giant, unexpected vet bill that will drain your savings account.

For such a young girl, Daisy sure is smart, and adorable of course!  We know she’ll find her forever family soon, but she makes a great point about pet insurance.  No one wants a huge vet bill because their pet accidentally ate a chocolate bar or came down with an illness, so call one of our agents today for a free quote and find out exactly how affordable pet insurance can be!




Furry Friend Friday With Jonah!


We know you missed us last week, but today we’re back and sitting down to chat with Jonah!  This cute little boy is a 2 year-old hound mix up for adoption at Greyhound Friends, Inc in Hopkinton and is waiting to find his new best friend!

So Jonah, I heard that you’ve come a long way to find the perfect family, is that true?

You’re right!  I’m originally from Kentucky, I was found as a stray and brought to a local shelter, but they thought I would have a better chance of being adopted up in Massachusetts, so here I am!

What’s your favorite way to spend the day up in the Bay State?

Well I’ve only been here for a month, but I love it already!  One of my favorite things to do is to play outside with all of my friends here.  I’m great with other dogs and we have a whole acre here that’s fenced in so we can run and play all day long!

Do you have a favorite toy that you like to play with?

Hmm, that’s a tough one but I really love rawhide bones, so I guess that’s like a toy and a treat all in one!  Does it get any better than that?

Is there anything that makes you nervous?

I would say that loud traffic noises make me nervous, being from a rural area like Kentucky, I’m not really used to hearing loud noises like that all the time.  Plus us dogs have extra sensitive hearing, so car horns and sirens sound much louder to us than to you humans.

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

Well, I’d need to go to a family that could handle my activity level, I’m not hyper or anything, but I am still young and would say I have a medium activity level.  I’d love for my new family to bring me for walks and on different adventures!  I get along great with other dogs if you already have one, and I’m great with kids!  I love all kids but would probably do best in a home with children ages 10 and up, just because of my size and activity level.  I’m a great companion and very clean, and I have a really unique widow’s peak which I think makes me extra cute.

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

Well, I’ve met a lot of furry friends during my travels across this country, and a lot of them needed vet care that came as a surprise to them and their families.  It was bad enough for them getting sick or hurt, but then their families had to pay huge bills!  It seems like pet insurance is a good way to make sure pet parent don’t get stuck with huge bills like that if their pets need to go to the vet.

Jonah may be young, but he’s seen a lot, and he’s right!  Vet bills can be extremely expensive, and if they’re unexpected that can really put a damper on your bank account.  Pet insurance is an easy way to ensure your pet gets the care they need 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 Berni!


Happy Friday everyone, we hope you all had a fun and safe Fourth of July!  Yesterday was all about sun, food, fireworks, and fun but today is all about our furry friend!  Meet Berni, this cute girl is only one a half years old and is up for adoption at the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem!  Rescued from Georgia, she is a sweet girl who has never known a home of her own but is definitely ready to find her family!

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

Well I love observing everything going on around me.  I’m very curious and love getting out and about to explore.  I’ve been here at the shelter for about 3 months now and get special privileges because I’m such a good girl!   I get to sit in the different offices in the building and even go on field trips!  I am a very active and social girl.  Whether I am going for a walk, run, or playing with other dogs I am having a blast!  Of course I love to snuggle too once I get tuckered out.

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

Like I said I get to go on field trips sometimes and have been to the Lynn woods a few times.  As a hound mix I love getting to use my sniffer and explore the woods, I am originally from Georgia so I guess that makes me a country girl!  Every time I go out I always make sure to wear my “adopt me” vest so that everyone knows I’m still looking for my family!

What about a favorite treat?

I will do anything for a treat!  I love almost all food and had some pepperoni this morning, don’t mind my breath.  Treats have really helped me with my training too, I know how to sit, stay, give paw, and pick up on things very quickly!  If I know I’ll get a treat for being good, I’ll do anything you ask!

Is there anything that scares you?

Not really, I’m a pretty confident girl and have been through a lot so I think of myself as being pretty tough.  I wasn’t even afraid of all the fireworks last night!

So Berni, why do you think pet insurance is so important for pet parents?

Well like I said, I love treats and will do anything for a good snack, even go through the trash.  I haven’t eaten anything bad yet but you never know what can happen or what I may accidentally get into, I am still a puppy after all!  That’s just me specifically, I’m sure all pets have their unique quirks that might get them into trouble, so it’s better to be safe than sorry!

Berni is right, all pets have their unique quirks and personality traits that make them lovable but can also get them into trouble.  Make sure your furry friend is protected and call us for a pet insurance quote today!
