Three dogs whose owner recently died are available for adoption through Dobe & Dog Rescue in Wichita.

The dogs are a mix of Doberman pinscher and Indian cattle dog and are 10 years old. There are two males, Sabaka and Comanche, and one female, Sasha. They have been together since they were puppies, and the rescue would like for them to be adopted together.

The dogs have laid-back personalities but are “energetic and playful and show no signs of aging like arthritis,” said Shelly Gilder, rescue coordinator for the group. They are housebroken, current on vaccinations and get along well with other dogs and with children, she said.

For more information, call 316-993-2652.

Lucky the Busy Bee, a 9-year-old female Jack Russell terrier mix, is available for adoption from Kansas Humane Society.

I love being around people – so much, in fact, that I visited a nursing home the other day. I warmed up to the people there immediately. I can’t wait to come home and spend my time with you. You should visit with me right away.

Also available:

• Papaya the Leader of the Band, 1-year-old male cat, domestic shorthair mix

Hi, I’m Papaya and I’m a fun furball of love. Are you using that string? If not, I’d like to play with it. Is that a shiny object? I’m going to play with that. Afterward, I’d like to lie down next to you. This all sounds like so much fun, you should visit your best friend at KHS right away.

• Uno the Rabbit, 5-month-old female mini rex/American rabbit

Hi, I’m Uno. I’m a really playful rabbit and I would make a great first pet for someone. I like fresh hay and carrots, and I enjoy being held. You should visit with me today at KHS.

If you’re interested in adopting from Kansas Humane Society, visit at 3313 N. Hillside, call 316-524-9196 or go online to www.kshumane.org.
