Jazz

March 2, 2014

Jazz1 Jazz2 Jazz3 Jazz4 Jazz5 Jazz6 Jazz7Jazz is very possibly a Catahoula Leopard Dog or a CLD mix.  She is a beautiful brindle color with white on her chest.  She is a young dog and has a lot of energy.

Catahoulas are high maintenance dogs and not considered a good breed for inexperienced owners.  They are affectionate with their owner but can be suspicious of people they don’t know.  They are a very intelligent dog and can become destructive if not kept busy.  The need a very securely fenced yard as they can become escape artists. (They should not be chained up as this can result in an aggressive dog.)  They should be obedience trained and extensively socialized.  They are not cold tolerant and need to be kept inside during cold weather.  Like other high maintenance breeds, there are owners who really like these dogs and consider these behavior traits as minor.

She will be $80 to adopt which covers her spay and Rabies Vaccination, which are both required by Texas state law. If you would like to come meet her please call 363-6499 to make an appointment.

Jet

March 2, 2014

Jet1 Jet2 Jet3 Jet4 Jet5Jet is a female Labrador Retriever weighing about 60 pounds.  She is a friendly dog and seems to get along with other dogs.  She accepts a leash well and no longer has the chain around her neck.  She knows Sit and possibly other commands.  Jet will require a high level of exercise and a family that interacts with her.  She will need a yard with a six foot fence for those times when she is outside.  She needs to be an inside outside dog who is inside with her family when they are home.  Jet should be Obedience trained.  Not only will it make her easier to handle but most Labs seem to consider it an enjoyable game.

She will be $80 to adopt which covers her spay and rabies vaccine, which are both required by Texas state law. If you would like to come meet her please call 363-6499 to make an appointment.

WE TRANSFERRED THIS LITTLE GUY TO THE AMARILLO SPCA BECAUSE HE WAS OUT OF TIME & WE HAD NO EMPTY KENNELS.  I SAW HIM OVER THERE 3/1 AND HAD TO ASK IF IT WAS HIM.   HE HAD BEEN BATHED AND GROOMED AND WAS ADORABLE LOOKING.  HE HAS ALSO BEEN ADOPTED.  SOME OF THE DOGS ARRIVE AT ANIMAL CONTROL IN POOR SHAPE.  YOU HAVE TO LOOK PAST NEGLECT, NOT ENOUGH FOOD, AND SOMETIMES, ABUSE TO SEE THE DOG THAT IS THERE.

This is Shadow who weighs about 10 pounds.  He may be a Shih Tzu mix.  (MORE LIKELY CAIRN TERRIER MIX)  He is a friendly little guy.  He will need a low level of exercise and a fenced backyard to play in.  He also needs a family willing to take care of him and include him in their life.  Because of his small size he will need to stay mostly inside.

JINGLE BELLE WAS TRANSFERRED TO AMARILLO SPCA 3/4 WHERE SHE IS STILL AVAILABLE.  SHE IS HOWEVER, PROBABLY A CHESAPEAKE BAY RETRIEVER MIX.

Jingle Belle is a Labrador Retriever mix.  She is currently about 50 pounds and probably about 10 to 12 months old.

She is a Chocolate color and has a soft coat.  Her feet are webbed.  The white on her chest indicates she is not completely Lab.   We think she probably has Australian Shepherd  in her.  She is a happy high-energy puppy who will need a high level of exercise and some training.

Belle will need a very securely fenced backyard. She should not be chained up.  She needs to spend time inside with her family and their guests.  Crate training her will give her a place where she feels secure at night.

Belle will be $80 to adopt.  This will pay for her spay.  She will need a Rabies Vaccination which is required by law.  If you are interested in meeting Belle, please call 806-363-6499 to make an appointment.

Dogs in Animal Control

December 2, 2013

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 the Animal Control kennels.  If the dogs are inside, please call the same number to get information.  It will help if you can describe the sex of the dog, size, color and markings as well as any collar the dog is wearing.  Keeping a collar on your dog with a current Rabies tag and an ID tag will help in getting your dog home.  Dogs in Animal Control are only kept for a limited time.

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.
