Ben is a very handsome male yellow Labrador Retriever with a nice personality. He is a young dog of one to two years. Ben will need a high level of exercise and a securely fenced yard. Labs are usually fairly easy to train but including him in family life will make a difference in how fast he learns. Training during commercials is a great way to do this.

The dogs in Animal Control have not been photographed in almost a week. If you are missing a dog, the dogs in Animal Control are in the outside kennels from about 8am to 4:30pm when the weather is warm enough. Please call the non-emergency number for the Hereford Police Department 363-7120 if your dog is in their kennels.
The Humane Society is looking for a couple of volunteers to help photograph the animals (dogs and cats). If you are over 18 and interested, please call the Humane Society number, 363-6499.

Punkin is an adorable Dachshund and maybe Chihuahua mix. She has beautiful eyes and a cute face. She is a smaller dog and a little shy.
She was surrendered because she wasn’t house broken. She will need a patient owner that knows how to do the house training she needs help with. She probably wouldn’t be good with little children unless they know how to be gentle with her until she feels comfortable with them.
She will be $80 to adopt which includes a certificate for $80 off her spay and rabies vaccine. If you would like to come out and meet her please call 363-6499 to make an appointment. We have adoption hours daily from 5-7-pm and REQUIRE AN APPOINTMENT FIRST!

Bronco is a neutered male Rottweiler. He is current on Vaccinations. He is a large dog, about one hundred pounds. He is a good natured dog and needs a family that understands the Rottweiler breed.
They are a very old European breed that has been used for many purposes through the centuries. They have pulled carts, herded livestock, and protected property. They have been used for police work and as service dogs.
The Rottweiler is described by the AKC as “…basically a calm, confident and courageous dog.” They are intelligent and protective. It is extremely important that they are obedience trained and socialized. They are not a dog for a casual owner. They require daily exercise and interaction with their family.
He will be $80 to adopt. If you would like to come meet him please call 363-6499 to make an appointment. We are open BY APPOINTMENT ONLY so we can have a volunteer here to meet you.

Tobin is a Great Pyrenees mix. He may have some Australian Cattle Dog in him but we are not sure. He is less than a year old and still growing. He is currently about 60 pounds but could be quite a big dog when grown. He has a docked tail because of an injury.
Tobin is a good natured dog but needs to have some obedience training. Dealing with a large dog who doesn’t understand what you want is difficult. Pyrs are sometimes stubborn and independent, and it is recommended that they are kept on a leash when out and about. He will also need a securely fenced yard with a fence that is at least six feet high. They should not be kept chained up.
Another important thing to consider is the cost to keep a Pyr. They are big dogs who can go through a lot of food. It needs to be a reasonably good quality food to help keep him healthy. Because of his size, tick and flea preventative medication as well as heartworm prevention will cost more. Tobin will need to be groomed twice a week most of the year and daily when he is shedding heavily. Pyrs are not particularly heat tolerant which will be a consideration during the hot part of the summer.
Great Pyrenees were bred as livestock guard dogs and they can develop habits such as nipping, excessive barking, and over-protectiveness. It is extremely important that they are thoroughly socialized and included in family life. This of course means training to make sure they are well behaved. The training needs to be firm but kind.
All this may seem like a lot just to adopt a dog but these beautiful dogs in general and Tobin in particular deserve a chance at a good life with owners who enjoy and understand their wonderful qualities.
Tobin has been neutered and is current on his vaccinations. If you are interested in meeting him, please call 806-363-6499 to set up an appointment. Adoptions are from 5 to 7pm by appointment only. The cost to adopt Tobin will be $80.

This is actually Baby. We originally called her Flower until we discovered she answers to Baby. She appears to be part Lab and has webbed feet. She has a tail which curls up on her back at times. She is smaller than most Akitas but could be part Shiba Inu. She is possibly also part German Shepherd or Malinois. Baby is spayed and current on Vaccinations. She is around 50 pounds.
She is an intelligent dog who knows “sit”, “down” and “come”. She does very well with people and is very affectionate. She has recently begun guarding the food from whatever dog she is kenneled with. Feeding her from her own dish away from other dogs has helped. Baby might do better in a home without small children or small dogs.
She will need a home where she gets a long, brisk walk every day and has a securely fenced yard with a 6 foot fence to play in. She would also probably excel at obedience training and the socialization with other dogs without food competition would be beneficial. Especially important is a home where she is considered part of the family and is taught how to be an inside dog as well as an outside dog. Inside is a good place to work on commands where she does not have to be on a leash.
If you would like to come meet her please call 806-363-6499 to make an appointment. Our adoption hours are from 5-7pm daily and we require an appointment. She will be $80 to adopt.
