Kathy's Cozy Critters

Puppies and kittens are cute but consider adopting an adult dog or cat. I adopted my terrier-mix Tuffy when she was three years old. I didn't have to train her - she's completely housebroken, and has perfect manners in the house. However, outside the house she turns into a crazy wild dog! You can also get a better idea of their personality and what they'll look like as an adult. Tuffy was a perfect match for me. It can be stressful for them though - Tuffy's only had two "accidents". The first accident was when I brought her home, and the second, when I moved to a new house. A little patience can pay off.
