Please welcome our Waifs of the Week: Besler, Emma, and Batman!

“Pleased to meet you! My name is Besler and I’m a spunky one-year-old looking for my forever home. Life hasn’t been easy for me so far. I’ve moved around a bit and I’m hoping to find a permanent, stable family. I’m a playful pup and I’m looking for a family who will be able to give me the mental and physical exercise I need to be happy and healthy. I’m a smart guy and I love learning new things. So far, I know “Sit” and “Shake”. I’d love to master new tricks and commands with you. My friends around here tell me that I do pretty well on a leash. I’ve actually joined the running program here at Wayside! I’d love to go exploring with you! I do request that you bring any canines to meet me before going home. Sometimes other dogs can scare me, so I might do well as the only dog as well. I sure can’t wait to find my forever family. I just know they’re out there. Come to Wayside and ask to meet me!”

“Pleased to meet you! My name is Emma, and I’m an adorable, chunky little black and white shorthaired girl with the cutest beauty mark on my nose. I came to Wayside from another shelter that was low on space. I’m so excited to be here, where I can meet you! I’m a sweet, affectionate, friendly girl with a nice purr. I give wonderful headbutts. Hey, it’s like I am petting you! Playing with toys is OK, but I really prefer attention and affection from people. When I had my Felineality test here at Wayside, they told me I am a Sidekick. That means I tend to be moderately brave in new situations, and I enjoy the company of people. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, I will want to be by your side, keeping you company. You will never be lonely with me around!”

“Thanks so much for reading about me! My name is Batman and I’m a four-year-old fella looking for a forever home. I came to Wayside when my last shelter ran out of space. Moving around and being the new pup in town has been scary but everyone here is so nice. I know it won’t be long until I find my own family. I’m a smart, energetic guy and I’m excited to learn all sorts of new things. So far I know “Sit”, “Down” and “Wait”. Sometimes I can be a little jumpy but I’m getting better with manners every single day. I’m a confident guy and I make friends with just about anyone I meet. New friends are the best! I also love toys. Tennis balls are my favorite. I could chase one around for hours. I bet we could learn fetch pretty quickly too! I do request that you bring the whole family, including canines, to meet me before we go home. I just want to make sure we’re a good fit for each other. I sure can’t wait to meet you! Come see me today!”
