Pistachio is an extremely handsome medium-haired brown tabby with white markings. He’s 2 years old and has enormous gold eyes and long whiskers. Pistachio is great with other cats and loves people. He’s very friendly, calm and quiet. June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month, and the perfect time to adopt this gorgeous guy.
Peach is a 5-month-old red-brindle terrier mix that will probably weigh 33-35 pounds when full grown. She’s somewhat shy when meeting new people, but responds to kindness and sweet talk. Peach is great with other dogs and loves to play. She was found as a stray puppy and has been looking for a new home since April 9. She’d love that home to be with you.
Pistachio, Peach and many other dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are available for adoption from the Dallas Animal Services Adoption Center, located at 1818 N.
