Our featured Wet Nose this week is a 2-year old Heeler mix named Posey. She's available for adoption at the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter.

Here's what our friends at YVAS have to say about Posey:

Just look at this sweet girl. Our Rosie Posey is looking for her new best friend. She bonds closely with her people and would love a home where she’s got a side of the bed and a spot on the couch. She’s well-mannered and seems to be house broken, even!

Another one of our recently featured Wet Noses is still looking for her person. Sprite the Akita mix is available for adoption.

Here's what Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter has to say about Sprite:

She’s cool, and refreshing, but she’s not a soda pop! Sprite likes to take things easy and would like a home where she can continue to live her best life that way. Sprite is picky of her dog friends, so a dog meet before adoption is highly recommended. She has potential to do well with respectful kids, but we are not sure how she will do with cats. She’s a wonderful, fastidious girl who will do just about anything for a treat. This girl loves the snow more than anything and will romp and roll in it for hours. Her most practiced trick is “sit” and will even sit at every door and wait patiently for you to open it before she goes through.
