Have you ever considered adopting ferrets? The Humane Society of Harford County currently has two that recognize their names, respond to verbal and visual commands—and even do tricks!
"We are affectionate, playful and sometimes mischievous companions who will entertain you with our antics," according to the Humane Harford blog. "Although small and quiet, ferrets will surprise and delight you with what they can do and learn."
Don't miss the ferrets, Edward and Houdini, along with the other featured pets of the week posted on Sept. 30—click each link for more details and see updated adoption news in the comment section:
