Pets of the week for Dec. 1

Humane Society for Greater Nashua

CAESAR

I’m Caesar, a happy, active, 5-year-old pit bull mix who will be a great companion. I’ve been at the shelter since June, and while I love my caregivers here, all I really want this Christmas is a family of my own. I’m a big guy, but I consider myself a lap dog who loves giving hugs and kisses. Since I’m a big dog, I would prefer a home with adults only or older children so we can play together. I love walks and am very well behaved on leash, but do need to be the only pet in my new home. Do you have room in your heart and home for a big, lovable guy like me?

GRETCHEN

I’m an independent, happy, 7-year-old cat in need of a new family. I do like my space and just a little attention, so I promise I won’t take much of your time. I’m very happy just being in the same room with my people or sleeping the day away. I do love my cat bed here, which is by a window where I can watch the visitors coming into the shelter, and I hope there is a nice window and bed for me in my new home. I lived with two dogs before, and I would be willing to do so again. Am I a purrfect match for you? Come and meet me to find out!

DUTCHESS

“Dutch,” a unique brindle Plott hound, is 4 years old. She’s 60 pounds of sweetness, melting hearts with soul-searching chocolate brown eyes. Dutch hates kennel life. She was abandoned after giving birth. She was later adopted to a “forever” family who moved, but didn’t love her enough to include her. Dutch’s pleading brown eyes question shelter volunteers, “What have I done to be ‘jailed’ away from those I loved?” Dutch would enjoy an active lifestyle with other compatible canine friends. She’s a vigorous playmate, so dogs over 30 pounds and kids older than 12 are preferred. As a hunting breed, she likes to chase, so no small critters for her! Dutch loves belly rubs, car rides, hiking and stuffed toys. Her Christmas wish is to find a true “forever” family, never to be abandoned again.

Hours are by appointment only. For more information, visit www.arnne.org, email info@arnne.org or call 233-4801. Meet our adoptable pets at our monthly Pet Adoption Day at the Pelham Congregational Church, 3 Main St. The next one is 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Dec. 21.

It’s me, Gretchen! I’m an independent, happy, 7-year-old cat waiting patiently for my forever family. I do enjoy my own, quiet space, as well as a little attention, so I promise I won’t take up very much of your time! I’m very happy being in the same room with my people and even lazing the day away.
