Meet Reese - $14 adoption fee

Greetings friends! My name is Reese and I'm here today to talk to you about investing. Now, I bet you're thinking, "What could a dog possibly know about investments?". Well, I know that if someone wants a great dog they have to invest time, and sometimes even money, to train it. I am already a great dog! I know to go potty when I'm outside. I know how to play very nicely with other dogs and to share toys, I know that I don't need to guard my food from people or other dogs and when my foster mom takes me walking, I do a really good job at quickly moving off the road and up to the fenceline then standing still until the car passes when she tells me to. Another thing I know is that when you invest in something you expect to get a return. I will give you unconditional love every day and for as long as I live! No offense, but you humans aren't very good at that so that makes the love I'm offering you extremely rare. Rare things are usually valuable. You see how this is starting to add up to a win-win? Bonus points because I'm skilled at snuggling. But here's the kicker--i have a fantastic plan to make you rich! If you'd see how happy I get when given a plush squeaky toy, and how fast I can disembowel one, you'd buy stock in the dog toy companies because I promise you I can keep them in business! So what do you say, how about adopting me and we can enrich each other's lives?! I am quiet and well-behaved in the house. I love to play but also enjoy keeping a spot warm for you on the couch. I'm not sure I like cows all that well so hopefully you don't have one of those. They bark funny anyway. To adopt me, contact the good folks at the Highland County Humane Society and tell them you're interested in their esteemed financial advisor, Reesey Peasey (that's what my foster mom calls me), CCIA (that stands for Certified Canine Investment Advisor...I just made that up but it sounds legit, no?) Reese is neutered, and vaccinated for dhlpp, bordetella, and rabies. He has a 4DX heartworm test and microchip with lifetime registration. Reese in on monthly parasite prevenatives. Also included in the adoption are 30 days of Pet First Pet Insurance, and Petco's Free Welcome to the Family Program. This program supports All New Pet Parents and offers Free resources, more than $650 in savings, and 24/7 support.
