General description

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Animals with specific needs
  • A dog
  • A cat
Dennis is a two-year-old mixed hound (possibly red-tick plus beagle?). He loves walks, meeting and playing with other dogs, and hanging out with humans. He needs to be fed twice a day and taken for 3 or 4 walks. He can also be let out into the fenced backyard to do his thing. For more on his adventures follow @dennisthepupper on Instagram.

Sonny the cat is low maintenance - just feed him twice a day and scoop his litter every few days. He is an indoor-outdoor cat and likes to spend much of the day outside. When he's home, he is quite friendly.
