Pets of the week for March 6, 2018

LOUIE1 / 2
RAZOR2 / 2

LOUIE is a 1-year-old brown shar-pei mix available for adoption through Animal Allies in Duluth. Louie is friendly and has a lot of energy. He would love an active home with plenty of opportunity for play — chew toys and playing fetch are his favorite. Louie is loyal, smart and knows the commands for sit, come, lay down, shake and high five.

An adoption fee is required for all adoptions. Animal Allies uses the "Meet your Match" adoption program designed by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The program evaluates an animal's behavior and interests and matches them to an adopter's preferences so you take home a pet you really click with. Call (218) 722-5341 or visit for more information.

RAZOR is an adult male Lab/chow mix available for adoption from Contented Critters Shelter in Makinen. Razor's owner died in 2013, and Razor has been at the shelter ever since. He's a great dog, but he just doesn't do well with other animals. He's a hunter and a rodent destroyer. He loves kids and people and is very playful.

If you would like more information or would like to meet Razor, contact Contented Critters Shelter in Makinen by calling (218) 638-2153, visit or or email
