Lee Koury So you fi nally decided to adopt a

John and Dee Smith celebrate 65 years

furry best friend. Great! Keep in mind that adopting a best

friend is a lifelong

commitment. Before you place a call to an animal rescue, please consider the following: Time: Time is especially important if

you plan on adopting a younger animal such as a puppy or kitten. If time is an issue for you, then consider adopting a more mature adult best friend. They come potty trained, don’t eat shoes, walk nicely on a leash, know all about trips to Petco and PetsMart, ride well in the car and they usually come with manners. Expense: A pet’s


average, especially smaller animals, is about 15-17 years, and expenses for a pet include annual vet visits and vaccinations, good food, bedding, collars, when you travel, etc.

SUN LAKES SPLASH John and Dee Smith in 2012.

Hi, I’m Lucky Boy. My foster mom thinks I am a gorgeous Affenpinscher with a wonderful little bounce to my step when I walk. I love to travel in the car and walk very well on a leash. I would prefer not to be with young children; I really like quieter older folks like my foster mom. I’m just a tiny little thing, 9 pounds and if you would like to see me up-front and personal, please contact D, Placement Coordinator for Rover’s Rest Stop at 480-600-2828 or by email,
