<strong>Blair, a 2-year-old mixed breed, is still available for adoption. She is affectionate and playful. She loves other dogs and needs that companionship to feel comfortable. Blair can be timid around new people and shows some signs of anxiety when adjusting to new surroundings. The shelter will only adopt Blair to a home with a higher stockade type fence. It takes a little time and commitment to gain her trust, but once you've got it, she'll be stuck to you like glue. Blair is crate trained and likes to be fed in her crate morning/night. While her crate does act as a safe spot for her, she doesn't like to be crated for long periods of time. Blair is also housebroken and knows basic commands. She has a respectful fear of cats and is safe to co-exist with them as long as they don't bully her. With the right cat, she is even a gentle play partner. Because Blair can be fearful around new people, loud noises and fast movements, she would be best suited for a family with no young children. Blair walks on a leash, loves to fetch and plays with plush toys. Adoption fees are waived while the shelter is open on a limited basis due to COVID-19 and construction. Call 405-216-7615 to set up an appointment to meet Blair. The Edmond Animal Welfare shelter is at 2424 Old Timbers Road. [PHOTO PROVIDED]</strong>

He's handsome as they come, and his sweet demeanor and fat face will make you melt. Ranger loves squeaky plush toys and most of all loves pets and affection. Ranger generally has a calm and gentle temperament, but of course he is excitable and playful when the time is right. He enjoys meeting new people and bonds quickly, a constant shadow who would no doubt be a loyal sentry for his family. Ranger is a rough and rowdy player where other dogs are concerned and does best with equally playful types that won't get upset with his wrestling, bumper car style. He is not approved to live with small animals. He would thrive best in a home with taller wooden fencing.
