Christy’s Pet Project

ChristysPetProject_618x50

Christy’s Pet Project” is a weekly sponsored feature at noon each Friday during my show.  It will feature a “Star Pet” from one of many St. Louis area rescue groups, giving them a better chance at placing pets in forever homes.  Not only do I want to find homes for all pets, I want to encourage every pet owner to spay and neuter and join the fight in unnecessary breeding and unintended litters.  I’ve fostered and rescued several animals myself and have personally experienced the struggle for exposure and funding for small rescues.  The goal:  Forever homes for every pet!

This week’s featured pet for adoption:

Dempsey is a snuggly puppy that needs a good home!

DempseyThis affectionate, snuggly boy is Dempsey, a 4.5 month old Beagle/Lab/Basset puppy mixer saved by Hope Rescues of Godfrey, IL.  Dempsey is a chunker!  He’s very social with other animals, 90% house trained, 100% if you are not even 5 minutes late to let him out!  Sit on the ground and let him greet you with an instant crawl into your lap and wait about 2 seconds.  After that, you’re in LOVE!  He’s a lover and needs a forever home that is willing to provide him with the affection and attention he craves.  Dempsey has the cutest features of his mix – big fat, speckled Basset Hound paws, floppy Beagle ears, and a handsome Lab face!  Hope Rescues expects him to possibly grow to about 55lbs when full grown but on the short side, like a Basset Hound.  He is a good natured puppy and we think he will be a gentle adult.  Dempsey’s adoption fee includes neuter, vetting, shots, microchip.
