Bailey, Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix

When people start thinking about getting a dog, they make a mental list of traits they want. Is "likes to sit on laps" on your list? How about "gives kisses" or "enjoys walks"?

If you went check, check and check to all of the above, then you should visit the shelter and meet Bailey, a Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix. He could be just the dog you are looking for.

At first glance, you might mistake Bailey, with his beautiful orange-red coat, for a small fox but he is 15 pounds of domesticated dog. He'll jump onto your lap for a cuddle and bound off again later for a walk.

Bruno, dachshund

While 13-year-old Bruno has a slower step than the younger Bailey, he, too, likes to snuggle up to a person and go for walks. We have recently discovered that Bruno does not like the cold, but who can blame this short-haired dachshund.

Bruno hangs out with Bailey at the shelter on Saturday mornings and can also be there at other times to accommodate your schedule.

We are looking for a foster home for a special older dog with some easy-to-handle medical needs. We pay for all medical expenses and food.

If you are interested in fostering this dog or another, please contact us. We match our foster families with dogs that will work for their households.

There will be a rabies clinic for dogs and cats tomorrow from 1 to 3 PM at the Falmouth Animal Control building. All dogs must be on leashes and all cats in carriers. The cost is $10 per animal.

If your pet's current rabies vaccine has not yet expired, bring your paperwork and for the $10 charge, you can get your pet a three-year shot.

At the same time and place, there is also a microchip clinic for dogs. The cost is $10 per dog. One of the first things that an animal control officer does after finding a stray dog is to check for a microchip. Getting your dog microchipped could help you be reunited sooner if your dog ever goes missing.

These clinics are open to all, so tell your friends who live in other towns that they may also bring their pets.

Falmouth residents will be able to license their dogs at the clinic.
