Stewi: A handsome and affectionate pup

Is that a good "sit" or what?

Stewi does well with training, and he has an intelligent, "what do you want me to do" attitude. He handles corrections with aplomb. He is very handsome, a friendly and affectionate pup.

Countryside Humane Society says he's a three- to four-month-old Rottweiler/Pit Bull/Chow Chow mix according to the information received, but we can't see the Pit or Chow Chow. We can guess he will be a medium to large-sized dog. (Mom was medium size.)

Stewi has a coat that feels somewhat like a German Shepherd. He will need an owner who will be responsible for his training as he will be a powerful dog. A household with children over age 12 is recommended, due to his strength.

Families interested in adoption should contact Countryside Humane Society, 2706 Chicory Road, or call (262) 554-6699.

Last week's dog, Isis, a mellow Rottweiler, goes to her new home after her spay surgery Thursday. When Isis came to Countryside she was thin and frightened. It took much coaxing for her to learn to trust strangers. She cowered and flinched when people approached and petted her. After several employees saw her potential and worked with her daily, she blossomed into an outgoing, affectionate dog. She has gained weight, been house trained, walks nicely on a leash, gets along with other dogs and, most importantly, greets everyone without fear or reservation. The staff will truly miss our special girl but we know there are far to many Isis's that come through our door. Thursday we will choose another of those special dogs to give extra attention and love to.
