CiCi, the Zen Master

Feeling a little harried after all the holiday festivities? Do yourself a favor for 2011 by adding a calming influence to your life. CiCi recently gave birth, and her puppy found a home. But this beautiful dog still has the mothering instinct, because her calm and gracious demeanor soothes everyone around her. Celebrate the new year by giving this gentle dog the loving home she deserves. CiCi is your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of December 27, 2010.

Christmas Eve

All the stockings were hung by the kennels with care in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

Bailey waits for Santa

Bailey didn't get her Christmas wish - a new home - so she's already getting ready for Santa's visit tonight. Santa has already told her what a good girl she's been this year, so Bailey's hoping Santa makes her dreams come true very soon.

It's Christmas Eve!

Joyce Ross and the entire Rockwall Animal Services team wish you a very merry Christmas. As a reminder, the shelter - and Find-a-Friend Fridays at the Rockwall Petco - are closed today for the holiday weekend. A special shout-out goes to Juan Hernandez, who's working Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to take care of the shelter pets.

Clyde is ready for the holidays

Does Clyde look familiar? He and his sister Bonnie walked alongside the Rockwall Animal Services float during the Christmas parade. Bonnie was adopted two weeks ago, leaving Clyde alone at the Rockwall Animal Adoption Center. Since he's friendly, handsome and intelligent, you simply won't find a more perfect holiday companion. He's your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of December 20, 2010.

Have you seen your Rita?

A rather large lap dog

Don't be fooled by that smiling face. Ringo may be a large dog - he's a mix of Australian shepherd and German shepherd - but he thinks he's a lap dog. This friendly two-year-old likes nothing better than to snuggle up for some well-deserved attention. He'll let you know when he's had enough, which won't be anytime soon. Ringo is your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of December 13, 2010.

Pongo starts the week off right

What a way to start the week! The shelter was open for about two minutes this morning before Pongo - last week's Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet of the Week - was adopted.

Pongo can fly!

All of the other reindeer may have prevented Rudolph from joining their games, but Pongo has an open invitation. That's because this friendly pointer mix can romp with the best of them. Don't tell the reindeer, but Pongo is a lot smarter than them as well. He may not have a red nose, but Pongo is sure to make your holiday season bright. He's your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of December 6, 2010.
