I am at the Great Plains Merriam Location! Come meet me today! My name is Dru! I have lots to tell you about me. First off, I have a wonderful two legged best friend named Barb. We go together like peanut butter and jelly. I’m the peanut butter and Barb is the jelly because I love love love peanut butter. Barb is the bun to my hot dog because I love love love turkey hot dogs – you get the idea. We are tight. She calls me a treasure and says I deserve a family who will honor, love and respect my presence in their lives. Is that cool or what? So, you ask why Barb is absolutely in love with me. Let me count the ways with you. 1) I love to give kisses. 2) I love to just lie in the grass and watch the world pass by after I have been played with or gone on a long walk 3) I love squeaky stuffed toys 4) I love attention 5) I am extremely intelligent 6) I love playing games that use my mind 7) I am willing to learn new things 8) I love to bury things in a pile of blankets, in a box, wherever 9) I love belly rubs 10)I entertain myself by playing with a tennis ball or stuffed toy I met Barb at another shelter where she was a volunteer and we just clicked. I wasn’t too thrilled about being homeless and was very sad. Barb and I met and we both fell in love with one another. Barb would come to visit me every day and I always looked forward to her visits. The other shelter was becoming too crowded so Barb made arrangements for me to come to Great Plains SPCA and I now have my very own suite (you must come visit me – suite life is sweet!). The best part is Barb still visits me every day. I am an active, full of energy type of dog and need daily exercise. No one would ever describe me as being a couch potato. I just want to run and play. Barb told me I needed to learn some doggie manners. I didn’t know what she was talking about but I soon found out. Dogs are not to pull when being walked on a leash (wow – that is hard because there is so much I want to check out). I am still learning and now I am walked with a Haltie Halter and doing so much better. I even attended a 6 week training class. Remember, I told you I love to run and play? That is a good thing but I love it a bit too much that a chain link fence doesn’t stop me from running – I just climb it to keep on running – call me Forest Gump. Silly me. Therefore, my forever family would either have to have a high wood fence that I can’t climb or be able to take me on lots of walks. I don’t want to get lost ever again. I love using my brain and would enjoy taking more doggie classes with you. I simply absorb attention and would prefer to be the only four legged pet. The way I see it; more attention for me. So, if you are looking for a high energy, sweet, strong, fun, intelligent dog companion – look no further. As I said before, suite life is sweet but nothing would be sweeter than a home and family of my own. Please come for me soon….all my love….Dru

Hi Rose here! Pittiful Pittie anyone? You can come meet me at the GPSPCA Merriam campus! I am such a goofball. I am still a puppy and I do need some training. I am great with other dogs and I am in playgroups! I love to chew on rawhides, treats and toys. I am very treat motivated and I am very smart. I can’t wait to learn new things and be part of someone’s family. Do you have room in your heart for me? Come meet me today!

I have a gorgeous grey coat with splotches of white and soft thick fur. Very striking if I do say so myself! My former owner says I was very congenial with family and liked to snuggle and purred a lot too. I wasn’t very good with strangers or visitors who come to the house. I’m what’s called a “doorbell kitty” as when that doorbell rings, I go and hide. I’ll bet you can understand as you probably want to go hide from some people that come to the door too, huh?
We might have to get acquainted with each other a bit more slowly than with some other cats. Please be patient. Just speak softly, allow me to sniff your hand when we first meet and don’t look directly ito my eyes at first. That can make a cat afraid as if we’re having a stare-down with a much bigger and imposing looking creature. Would you be willing to do that with me when we meet? Thank you!
I like dogs but not all cats. Not all of us have compatible personalities and there is a right and wrong way to introduce cats to each other. If you want two, ask the people here how to introduce me to your pet or to recommend another cat here that I like. I am also very playful and enjoy my toys. If you need toys, check out the selection here at Metro-paw-litan Pet Supply where they have great gear at great prices, and all purchases support the care of the animals at the shelter.
Can’t wait to meet you! Hope you’re as excited to meet me.
