This week's Pets of the Week at Baltimore Humane Society are Itsy and Slim Jim. Here's what they each have to say:
Hello. My name is Itsy and I was originally adopted from BHS as a tiny puppy, but as I got bigger, my family realized I was too much for them to handle. I am back at BHS hoping to find my forever home with a new family who understands that I am still growing and have a lot of energy. Since I am still young, it would benefit me to go to training classes and it would be great fun for me and my new family. I enjoy being around people and playing with toys, but sometimes I can get over-excited and be a bit nippy so I’d do best with children who are at least 8 years old. My previous owner said that I like to chase cats for fun, but if you have a cat let us know so I can be cat tested here at BHS. We would also do a dog intro if you do have another dog to make sure everyone gets along. If you are looking to adopt a fun loving, young and energetic dog like me then please visit BHS soon.
Slim Jim's my name. That's because when I came into the shelter I was barley 4 pounds. (I'm a hefty 10 pounds now!) I was extremely underweight and dehydrated. I was found in a nice man’s garage and my hair was all oily. Once the nice staff here gave me a bath, gave me yummy food, and some fluids... I was a new cat! Since I was found in a garage the staff thinks that I may have had some chemicals on me. About half of my body has chemical burns, but I am healing very well. The only bad thing is that my hair might not grow back in those areas. But that's okay, my personality makes up for it!! I've had a tough little life so far. But it all gets better from here. On a positive note, I love to play with toys and make little chirping noises while I play. I'm staff members Krystal's favorite kitten!! She spoils me. I love to be held like a baby and loved on. I also love to rub my face all over people's faces. Cute, huh? I really like dogs and other kitties. I want all the attention I can get either from people or other animals. Please consider adopting a sweet little guy like myself. See ya soon!
The adoption fee is $165 for Itsy, and $105 for Slim Jim. Plus get a $5 off Hills Science Diet pet food coupon!
