Lola finally found a loving forever home with the Perry family on Oct. 24 — just one day after she transferred to the Arizona Humane Society.While Arizona Humane Society transfers homeless pets from other areas to its care, including regular transport of puppies from the Navajo Nation, other shelters reciprocate in turn.
This summer, she saw a photo of a tabby kitten rescued by a firefighter: Ace. She instantly knew he was "the one." But incorporating him into the family took a little finesse.
“The first couple weeks were a little interesting getting them used to each other,” she recalled with a laugh.
Dude seemed overly curious about Ace’s crate when she brought the kitty home, so Burroughs kept her dog on a leash for their initial interactions. Then one Saturday night, she decided they had smelled and seen each other enough to just go for it.
Breathe easy. In addition to sweating through their paw pads, dogs pant to cool themselves off. A panting dog can take 300-400 breaths (compared to his regular 30-40) with very little effort.
“They were fine, and now they are best buddies,” she said. “Ace is definitely in charge.”
