Tuesday’s Tails #23: Meet Akira!
From now on, my Tuesday’s Tails posts will be written in honor of Phe, or as we called her…Princess Phe. I would never have started this blog hop if it hadn’t been for her, so this one is for you Phe. Let’s see if we can’t help get some doggies and kitties adopted!
This is the Blog Hop that features shelter animals. Find a cat, dog, rabbit, etc. at your local animal shelter or rescue and feature them on this Blog Hop! Come join the fun and help a furry friend find a forever home! And while you’re at it, don’t forget to visit the other blogs and share their doggies, cats, rabbits, and all the other animals that need forever homes on your social media sites. Please spread the word!
We are featuring Akira because she is a senior, black Labrador Retriever. We feel so sorry for those senior dogs and cats that are surrendered to animal shelters. Maybe because we could never ever imagine surrendering any of our dogs to the animal shelter. While that is how we feel, we know that there are circumstances that we are not totally aware of; so all we can do is feel very sorry for those senior pets that find themselves living at an animal shelter.
Akira reminded us of our Shiloh and we just had to feature her today! She is spayed, around 10 years old and weighs approximately 55 pounds. She looks like she is a sweetheart!
This is what the shelter staff has to say about Akira:
Akira may be an older girl, but she still has plenty of spunk left. She enjoys playing fetch in the yard and going for walks. She has a spirited personality and would make a great companion. She knows her basic commands and only wants to be loved.
Advantages of adopting an older dog:
- out of the chewing stage
- calmer than a younger dog
- great companion and friend
Akira just wants to spend the rest of her days with a loving family that will take care of her. Won’t you please give this sweet old girl a chance? If you think she might be the dog for you, please call the Edmond Animal Shelter at (405) 216-7615 and ask for information about animal ID number A021504.
By the way, we have good news! It looks like Red was adopted. He isn’t on the animal shelter’s website anymore! But on a sad note, Babe and Ira are still waiting for their forever homes
