Another week has passed, and we have a new group of Waifs of the Week: Andretti, Vivienne and Bailey! These sweet babies have waited for this special moment where they are one step closer to finding their forever families! Let’s give them a round of a-paws!


Hi there! Thanks so much for reading about me! My name is Andretti, and I’m a gorgeous four-year-old fella looking for my forever home. I came to Wayside after I was found wandering alone as a stray. I’m thankful to be somewhere that’s warm and safe. I know it won’t be long until I meet the people I’ll spend forever with.

My friends here have described me as affectionate and curious. I love people! I can be a little shy when I first meet someone, but with a little patience, I’ll warm up quickly.

I would love to meet your kiddos and other pups before going home. Bring them by, and let’s get to know each other!

Love, Andretti


Thanks for reading about me! My name is Vivienne, and I’ve heard people say I’m one of the prettiest girls at Wayside, with my vivid orange, black and white calico coat. It really brings out my gorgeous green eyes.

I’m an affectionate kitty who enjoys being pet, especially on my head, cheeks and chin. Ahhh … that feels amaaaaazing! I will let you know how much I’m enjoying it with my soft purr and some gentle headbutts.

I like to play, too. One of my favorite toys is a laser pointer. It’s so exciting to chase the red dot. I’ve been known to indulge in a little catnip on occasion, too. That’s fun!

When I had my Felineality test here at Wayside, they told me I’m a Sidekick. That means I’m moderately brave in new situations, and my mission in life is to stick by my favorite person or people, making them look and feel good. I’d love to do that for you!

Love, Vivienne


Hi, Everyone!

I’m Bailey the Beagle!!!  I’m a sweet, friendly gal, six years young which, if you ask me, is the perfect age!  I mean, puppies are great and all, but they’re a lot of work!!  See, I already have lots of the work done for you!!  Even though I’m not a puppy anymore, I’m still very active.  I like to run (I’m training for the Waif Runners’ program here at Wayside.) and I looooove to play in the dog park and get in the pool!!!

I also know a few commands like “sit” and “stay”, but I’d really like to continue my training and learn some more with my new family.  I sure love treats so if you throw a few my way I’ll be sure to learn more new things quickly!   I’m crate trained, too!  I’m a very social girl; I like meeting new people and I usually like other dogs too!  I get to play with other dogs in Play Groups here at Wayside, and I think that’s really fun!  Not as fun as the pool, mind you, but still really fun!!!

What do you think?  Are you ready to come meet me?!?!?  I hope so, cause as cool as Wayside is, I’d really like to find my people and have a home of my own.

Hugs and Kisses, Bailey
