Max needs a special diet
Max needs an owner who relates to food allergies.

Max, a 6-year-old black Labrador retriever mix, has been at the Wyandotte Animal Pound since Feb. 21, when he was given up by his owners. He had an allergic reaction around his eyes when he ate regular dog food, but is doing much better with the shelter’s special diet and plenty of tender loving care.

Jumping Jaggar needs patient love
Jaggar, a tan and white golden retriever mix, is a big puppy who still has some growing to do. He was a stray who was brought to the pound on Valentine’s Day. He is overlooked because he is high-strung and likes to jump a lot. He will need a lot of patience and love.

Chase is a gentle dog who likes to ‘talk’ to people
Chase, a black and white pit bull mix, has been at the pound since Feb. 13, when he was rescued as a stray. However, he is gentle and in good health, and shelter volunteers feel he must have been a cared-for pet before being found on the street in Riverview. He is a year old, is nonaggressive, and likes to vocalize with people. Volunteers describe him as a “real sweetheart.”

Dog adoption fees are $85 (in cash) and include spaying/neutering, first distemper vaccine and a rabies vaccine and heartworm test if the animal is old enough. The Wyandotte Animal Pound is at 1170 Grove, between 11th and 13th streets. Adoption hours are 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, and Friday; 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday. For more information call (734) 324-4445 or go to www.petfinder.com/shelters/MI363.html.
