There is nothing better than playing inside with your pet to help pass the time on a cold winter day. Whether it's playing tug of war or chase the laser, this interaction helps you bond with your pet. Animals Best Friends has many animals that would make good family pets and companions. I want to introduce you to four of them.

Peanut just fits his name. He is a nut! Peanut is a 2-year-old terrier mix who really loves to play. He would be so much entertainment that his family wouldn't need TV. Peanut loves his caregivers and enjoys playing with other dogs. Squeaky toys are his absolute favorite!

Rocky is a 4-year-old miniature pinscher. He is a handsome boy who loves to play fetch and go for walks. Rocky gets along well with other dogs, but doesn't care for cats. He has lots of energy and enjoys the attention he gets from his caregivers. Rocky would be a great addition to a family with older children.

Moeshe is a wonderful 8-year-old dilute tortoiseshell cat. She is extremely sweet and likes to be held like a baby. Moeshe came back to ABF when her owner died, so she is looking for a permanent loving home. She would be great to cuddle with on cold winter nights.

Butterscotch is a 5-year-old domestic medium hair with a beautiful orange and white coat. He is an absolute lover and would make a good snuggler! Butterscotch came to ABF when his owner went into a nursing home. He needs a loving family to call his own.

If you're looking for a pet to join your family and think that one of these kids might be a good fit, go to our website at and complete an application. ABF does home visits and two week trials to be sure the family and pet are a good fit.
