Furry Friend Friday With Leroy!


Happy Furry Friend Friday everyone!  It’s a scorcher out there, we hope you’re staying as cool as our friend Leroy!  This little cutie is a 3-year-old papillon mix up for adoption at the Lowell Humane Society, and he’s ready to meet his forever family!  Found as a stray, this guy is ready to finally settle down in his new home!

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

I LOVE going for walks!  Being out and about is my favorite thing to do by far!  I also love playing fetch, I have a lot of energy and that tuckers me right out.

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

Well the shelter here is right near the Merrimack River, so I love walking along the water.  There is always so much going on there, especially now that it’s getting warmer!  I love watching all of the people out on boats, maybe when I finally get adopted my new family will bring me out on the water and I can see what it’s like to go boating!

Is there anything that you’re afraid of?

Not really, I went through a few evaluations when I came here and nothing scared me or made me nervous!  In fact, I did great on all of my evaluations!  I’m approved to go to homes with another small dog, or even a cat maybe!  Not positive about cats but I would be willing to give them a chance.  I would even be good with school-aged children, basically I love everyone and would be perfect for nearly any home!

Do you have a favorite treat?

I go crazy for hot dogs!  They are my absolute favorite snack, but I don’t get them very often since I’m not supposed to have people food.

What about a favorite toy?

You know those plush squeaky toys?  Those drive me crazy!  It’s kind of a love-hate relationship, I love chewing on them and the noise they make, but hate when they rip apart and that stuffing gets stuck in my mouth!

Leroy, why do you think it’s a good idea for all pets to have pet insurance?

Well personally I love to socialize, and where do dogs go to do that?  The dog park.  The only problem with that is that dog parks carry all kinds of diseases!  Imagine hanging out with your friends in a public bathroom?   As clean as I am, it’s still easy to catch something from a dog park.

Leroy is a smart boy, and what he has to say about dog parks is very true!  It’s easy for your pet to catch a disease from another dog, dog’s get sick just like people do!  Dog parks’s are not the only risk either, your dog can get sick or have an accident when you least expect it, that’s why it’s so important to be prepared and protect your furry friend no matter what!  Protect your pet like you would any other member of your family, call us for a pet insurance quote today!

Thanks again to the Lowell Humane Society for letting us feature Leroy this week, and a very special thank you to Crystal, the director of the shelter and one of our customers here at MassDrive!  The Lowell Humane Society still has Peachie up for adoption as well, she was featured in a previous Furry Friend Friday interview which you can read here!




A Very Special Furry Friend Friday!


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.
