Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Cathy McCormick, a volunteer with , introduces us to Dobby the dog and Rocky the cat:
Dobby is a handsome 10-month old Rottweiler/Mountain Dog mix who weighs about 60 pounds. Dobby was found wandering with a large gaping gash across his chest. Due to his wound, he developed tetanus (lockjaw). Fortunately, he was able to recover from the tetanus and is adapting to his new surroundings where he lives with and gets along with another dog. He seems to have a normal interest in other dogs. He has been friendly with people, but has not had any exposure to cats or very young children. Dobby is adapting to crate training and has learned to sit and stay, to leave his crate, wait for his food and wait to go outside. He is learning to walk with a walking collar, which has made walks very pleasant with no pulling. He seems to be a quick learner and seems as if he may excel with learning tricks or agility skills. He is energetic and his new owner should have experience with larger dogs to be able to ensure the continued development of his manners. Dobby is neutered and up to date on his shots.
Rocky is just more than a year old and loves to give head butts. He is a real sweet black cat with golden eyes. Given a little time, Rocky will jump up and be a lap kitty. He was rescued from a high-kill shelter. He likes his foster parents’ dogs, but it may take a little time for him to get along with other cats. Rocky is neutered and current on age appropriate vaccinations, dewormed and tested negative for feline AIDS and feline leukemia.

Rose Darin, a volunteer at the , introduces us to Moose the dog and Eliza the cat:
Moose is a very handsome adult brindle Mastiff/Shepherd mix. He ended up at the pound with his best friend, Holly, as a stray. He is a large dog, but he's very gentle and affectionate. He is a very smart dog, too, who already knows basic commands. He walks very well on leash. He tested well with the cats and with other dogs. Moose is also a very playful boy. He loves to fetch. He is neutered, current on shots and tested negative for heartworm.
Eliza is a very gentle girl who would flourish in a quiet and loving home. She lost her home when her owner passed away very suddenly. Despite that heartbreak, Eliza is still a sweet and affectionate cat to all who meet her. She gets along with other cats and with cat-friendly dogs. She is spayed, current on shots, litter box trained and tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV.

Vickie Taylor, vice president of WAG Animal Rescue, introduces us to Blade the dog and Nona the cat:
Blade is a very sweet loving little Italian Greyhound who loves to give kisses. He is about 3 years old and weighs only 15 pounds. Blade is brown with a white chest and white toes. He is just so cute. Blade even prances when he walks. He gets along great with dogs and cats. He loves to cuddle and be with you all the time. He is normally very lazy except he does like to run outside. Blade does need a fenced backyard. He is crate trained and knows how to sit. He is not recommended for young children because he is so tiny.
Nona is a sweet little 11-week-old kitten. She is a social girl who enjoys being around people and playing toys. Nona has been combo tested negative and her vaccines have been started.
