Now that spring has sprung, it's the "purrfect" time to adopt a cat and/or dog — and boy have we got a GREAT group of furry angels for you! In this month's installment of our Bow to Wow series, we have four pooches and one fabulous feline from Animal Care and Control in NYC.
We start with "Max," the most adorable 2-year-old Yorkshire-terrier mix, who is smart as a whip and a love bug to boot. Next, meet "Chiquita," a sweet dachshund mix, whose beauty matches her stellar personality!
Now onto another fabulous female (with a spicy demeanor): Say hello to "Sophie," a puppy pug mix. "Sherlock" is another puppy looking for a new home. This 7-month-old brindle mix is beyond precious, and affectionate.
And finally, 1-year-old "Miley" is a feline with the most amazing disposition. She's an orange tiger/domestic shorthair you are sure to love.
These five wonderful animals are guaranteed to melt your heart, and brighten it — just in time for spring!
