Jake is a 3-year-old Yorkie mix. He is a rescue dog and loves to play with his sisters: Kailee, a Great Dane mix; and Bean, a Collie mix. Jake loves to pretend to be a statue and wait for the squirrels in the yard so he can chase them. He has a heart of gold and always lets us know when another animal that needs help wanders into our yard. He has many “cat friends.” Jake lives with his owner, Susan Levin, in Dade City.
Patches is a 14-year-old mixed breed and is also known as Fat Boy, Walking Hairball and Mr. Independent. Patches came to his owner as a stray cat when he was about 8 weeks old. If you are into cute, cuddly lap cats, forget about this big boy. His mama has to beg for affection, attention and thank yous. Patches is about as independent as a cat can be and likes to think it is his house and you are allowed to live there. He loves to eat, lounge and get in your face when you are reading your favorite book. Patches is not “purr”fect, but he is loved by his proud owner, Carol Kocalis, of Land O’ Lakes.
