Betty is a 1 year old Pit Bull terrier. Unfortunately, Betty's previous owners did not put a lot of time into training her. She is very energetic and needs some obedience training, but she is smart, she listens well, and she is eager to please. With discipline and strong leadership, she is highly trainable. Since the shelter staff has been working with her,  she now knows how to sit, stay, and laydown on command. Betty is a work in progress, and in the right home, one with consistency and commitment,  she will make an excellent companion. Betty is spunky, playful, friendly and full of love!

Ivy is a 2-year-old orange tabby cat.  Since most orange tabbies are male, Ivy is a fairly rare cat. When she arrived at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center, she had six kittens who were all quickly adopted, but Ivy is still waiting for her forever  home.  Independent and sassy, Ivy needs an owner who understands that she enjoys her alone time just as much as she craves attention. Ivy would do well in a home where she is the only pet because she deserves to be the center of attention.  She is a fun and feisty kitty who will bring entertainment into the lives of her new family.

Tugboat is a male terrier mix who is just over a year old.  If you are looking for a little dog with big personality, Tugboat is your dog!   True to his breed, he is fun, independent, and active.  Terriers were bred to dig out burrowed animals, so they can be very focused and intense.  In addition, terriers tend to have an abundance of energy and to be incredibly athletic.   For this reason, a busy terrier is a happy terrier!  Tugboat would thrive in an environment where he can participate in hiking, jogging, and long walks.  He may do well with another dog, but he is particular about his canine friends, so a dog introduction would be required.  He loves every person that he meets, and he is extremely affectionate and loving.
