Here is my cutie!! :)
867978B6-A79A-45AD-A6A4-AB529EDCDEF4.jpeg


Name: Frisco

Tricks: Sit, Stay, roll over, shake, down, heel, catch, hold and catch (balance a treat on his nose then say “hold” and he will hold it until you say “catch” then he will flip it up and catch it!), weave, jump, over, and fetch.

Where I got him: I rescued him from a dump site, someone just dropped him off.

Personality: he is very playful, he loves swimming and running!!

How old is he?: approximately 1.5 years old.

Breed: pure breed mutt!! (I love calling him this, because I have no clue what kind he is. He is a mutt.)

This is my dog, and I hope you choose him as the pet of the month!! Thank you all for taking the time to read this. :)

This is “Tugboat”. He’s an English Bulldog. Age: 6 years. Tricks: Snores like a freight train and catches dog biscuits in mid air. Also sits on command. Tugboat was being kept in a hot Texas backyard where he would surely die of heat stroke. He had hot spots in his coat and was just mistreated. We offered the owners $1,000 to rescue him and they accepted. As suspected, Tugboat had heart worms. We had him treated and put him on a special diet. Vet was unsure he would make it. That was 4 years ago and he proved to be one tough dog. He is now a healthy, crazy member of our family and we love him so much!

I am probably entering late but I figured I’d throw my favorite boy in.

30FBCE0B-5504-41CB-82F6-1F9020C42BD7.jpeg

(Entering the adult tabby)

Name: Tigre

Age: 2 & 1/2 years

Color: Brown mackerel tabby with white socks, nose & thin white diamond between eyes.

Tricks: Fetch! Sticks & balls. His fav is a soft pink pom-pom (he’s confident in his masculinity)

Unique: Former feral that became a rescue. He inspired me to adopt 3 other cats, care for the rest of the feral colony, and to create a blog which funded the ferals for some time but now only creates donations for a local SPCA.

History: Kitten from a feral pair that promptly disappeared (reappeared with other littermates over half a year later - after winter). Basically his parents left him on my porch. Although Tigre was rescued, he had no health issues or reasons to be abandoned. He is my son now.

Personality: My sweetest, gentlest boy. He took a lot of time to adjust fully, has a few feral quirks, & prefers to roam on his own sometimes still. Although the largest, he is always so tolerant & genial (was great with kittens, pictures above). Tigre lays on my chest at night until I start drifting off then retreats under the bed like the tiny protector he knows he is. He’s such a loyal and loving boy who is wise beyond his years.

This is my puppy, Zoe. I got her from a rescue organization two and a half years ago and I couldn't love her more. She's my near constant companion. She goes to work with me every day and comes to most family events. She loves finding hide-y holes to to sleep in and soaking up the sun.

age: 5 or 6

size: 11.5 lbs

breed: mutt (my guess is chihuahua pomeranian mix)

PhoenixKingZ asked:“Is there a potm contest monthly?”

Potm will run every 2nd month. It will alternate with the newly revived fish of the month contest.

If you win potm, you cannot reenter that same pet in a future contest. Also, if you win potm, you cannot enter a different pet in the next potm but can enter a different pet in the contest after that.

If you do not win this potm contest, you are welcome to reenter the same pet in a future potm contest.

The tank of the month starts around the first of each and every month. Next one starts in a little over a week around june 1st.
