Diamond in the Ruff & Feline Friend

Muggs is a six-year-old gray and white Persian. We believe she is a purebred Persian but we do not have papers to prove that theory. Muggs went to foster care for a bit and she made herself right at home. She acted like she lived there forever and since coming back to the shelter has done the same. She is very people and dog friendly but she is also an independent soul. Muggs would love a forever home where she can bask in the sun in front of a big window. Come meet our beautiful girl today.

Winston is my name and I'm a two-year-old Australian Shepherd/Blue Heeler mix. I'm a black, gray and white medium sized boy. I'm a very quiet dog and I love to be petted. I really like being around people but am unsure about cats and children. I do well on a leash so like to go for long walks. I'm totally housebroken and like all treats. I'm very laid back and don't like to play much. I'd make a great companion for a older couple.
