Alaqua Animal Refuge ‘furever’ friend of the week

September 19, 2010

Meet Artie, he’s all ears!

This is Artie.  No, he’s not really all ears, but his ears are two of his most striking features.  They are a little bit floppy and don’t quite face in the usual direction, but their haphazard appearance just adds to Artie’s considerable canine charm.  A seven month old Labrador/ shepherd mix, Artie has a fuzzy blond coat with a fashionable touch of brown directly under his chin.  Although he is being very well cared for at Alaqua Animal Refuge, Artie is feeling a tad lonely these days.  You see, all his siblings have recently been adopted.  Now, he too is longing for a loving home with a “furever” friend.  Artie is mild mannered, completely adorable and has personality to spare.  If you’d like to meet Artie, come to the Alaqua ten acre sanctuary and pay him a visit.  He’s all ears, and he is sure to leave you all smiles!
