Thunder - North Country SPCA
This week, the NCSPCA would like to share some facts about the advantages of spaying/neutering your pets. Here are just a few... 1) Did you know that spaying your female animal before her first heat can help prevent uterine and breast cancers in your pet? Neutered male pets have a much lower rate of testicular cancer. 2) Spaying/neutering reduces unpleasant behaviors in both sexes of animals. Female pets in heat will often yowl for days and urinate in unwanted spaces; un-neutered male pets will spray to mark their territory and often attempt to roam in search of a mate. A spayed/neutered pet will be more focused on family and the home, and aggressive behavior in males will be reduced. 3) Most importantly, by spaying or neutering your pet, you are helping to reduce pet overpopulation and the number of unwanted litters who need homes. For more information, check out the myths and facts on our website, ncscpa.org.
Our featured pet this week is Thunder, one of a number of Treeing Walker Coonhounds seized in an abuse case. Despite his name, Thunder is actually a calm and quiet boy, although he loves attention and will quickly reward you with a wildly wagging tail when it's time to go for a walk or play! Thunder has a gentle disposition and would be a wonderful family dog. He thinks it would be just great to live indoors with a comfy warm bed, lots of kibble, and plenty of scratching behind his long ears. If you are looking for a small dog with a huge personality, Thunder is the canine companion for you. Why not stop by and meet him today?
