Pet of the week

February 25, 2005

Cowboy is a male hound mix. He is approximately 1-year-old. He has a short coat with red and black markings and brown eyes. Cowboy trains quickly and appears to get along well with other dogs and cats. This happy, energetic guy lost his family and arrived as a stray. He is ready for a new companion and playmate to take him home.

Pet tip: Choose a neutral location for dog introductions

A separate person should handle each dog. With both dogs on leashes, begin the introductions in an area unfamiliar to each, such as a park or a neighbor's yard. If you frequently walk your resident dog in a nearby park, it might view that area as her territory, too, so choose a less familiar site. Choosing a neutral location is one thing you can do to make the addition of a new dog easier.

For more information or to become a volunteer, visit the Humane Society of Washington County at 13011 Maugansville Road in Hagerstown or call 301-733-2060.
