Welcome to this week’s Canines & Crosstreks. This week, we’re joined by two senior doggos just looking for a forever home. Please meet Lulu and Bash!
Shelters all over the country are overflowing with dogs but the SPCA of Anne Arundel County has some of the cutest pups!
Today we meet two of them Lulu and Bash! Two more “mature” guests of the SPCA that are looking for a great home because their humans were not able to take them to their next home.
Up first was Lulu–she is a 2-year-old Beagle Mix who is just content with whatever comes her way. She likes people, dogs, cats, and scratches on her back. She is very well-mannered and has a chill temperament. Her humans lost their home and were unable to care for her so they surrendered her in hopes of finding a home that has some love to spare for a loyal companion.
With a similar story, Bash finds himself a guest of the SPCA. His humans were moving to a new place that did not accept animals. Now Bash is an 8-year-old Corgi-Jack Russell Terrier mix, and that is an odd combination for sure. Bash has the body of a Corgi but the head and face of a large Jack Russell. He is very spry for an 8-year-old and gets along with everyone as well. I looked under the table and he was having a blast rolling and rubbing on the carpet. ANd that one ear that pops up all the time!
The best thing about adopting an older dog is that they are not puppies! No crate training. No middle-of-the-night walks. No obedience training. No housetraining. They know the drill and are ready to go. Of course, there will be SOME training to get used to your home and your rules, but a lot of the work with a puppy is already done! Both Bash and Lulu are great on leashes. They had no issue following the few commands we threw their way!
Do you have a place in your home and heart for Bash or Lulu? I mean look at those faces!
And yes, the SPCA of Anne Arundel County is starting to plan for the 2023 version of Lights on the Bay and is looking for sponsors. This may be a perfect opportunity if you’d like to get your name in front of tens of thousands of area residents. More information is here!
