Sunny1 Sunny2 Sunny3 Sunny4 Sunny5 Sunny6 Sunny7Sunny appears to be a Great Pyrenees Anatolian Shepherd mix.  She has double dew claws on her back feet.  She has a black mask and a beautiful golden colored coat.  She also has Entropion of her right eye which is a condition where the lower eyelashes turn in and irritate the eye.  Left untreated, this condition can result in loss of vision.  When she is spayed, surgery can also be done on her eye.

Sunny appears to be an adult but is somewhat small for these two breeds.  She probably weighs about 60 pounds.  These dogs are used to protect livestock but some are becoming pets.  An understanding of both breeds is important before choosing one of these dogs as a pet.  They require extensive socialization and training.  They need an experienced and assertive owner who understands how to deal with these beautiful dogs who tend to be self-reliant and dominant.  I own a different breed with some of the same characteristics.  It is a lot of work and a huge commitment.  You have to really like the breed as well as the individual dog for both of you to be happy and successful.

Sunny has been wormed and vaccinated against Bordatella and Parvo/ Distemper.  If you are interested in meeting her, please go to our Adoption page.

Tandy is a beautiful brindle pattern female puppy.  We are not sure what breeds make up her background.  She came in with a littermate who resembled a Black-mouthed Cur and who has been adopted.  Tandy is still looking for her forever home.  She is around 6 months old and has had three vaccinations for Parvo/ Distemper. Tandy weighs about 30 to 35 pounds and still has some growing to do.  She is slightly shy but very sweet.

If you are interested in adopting Tandy, please check our Adoption page.

Chloe IMG_2263

Chloe is a mostly white Australian Shepherd with blue eyes. Chloe is also a special needs dog.  She has sight and hearing problems.  Chloe doesn’t seem to know this of course.  She is a happy, friendly girl who likes to play ball and run around our exercise area.  She also likes playing in water.  She plays in her water dish and also plays in the water from a water hose.  She walks on a leash well and needs only gentle corrections.  Someone in her past has taught her to ”Sit” and “Down” using hand signals.

Chloe needs a family experienced with dogs.  She needs to be an inside outside dog who is considered part of the family.  With her playful nature she would probably do well with another gentle dog that she can follow when she is unsure and who would be a companion.  Chloe is an intelligent dog who might be successful in Obedience or Agility events but with patient training could learn to simply enjoy competing.  She will of course need a securely fenced yard that she cannot get through or under.  Like many other Herding type dogs, Chloe is an excellent digger.

Chloe is now in a foster home as she had run out of time to stay in our kennels.  She had apparently been housebroken in the past.  She is very affectionate and loves tennis balls.  She is currently underweight according to the Vet.  She accepts changes very slowly even such things as a change in food.  It took a couple days to get her to eat but once she did, she is a good eater.  She is currently on a quality food which will hopefully bring her weight up.  She exhibits some food aggression which may be a result of being feed with other dogs at her previous home.  At her foster home, she has her own bowl as do each of the other dogs.

If you are interested in Chloe, please see our Adoption page.

Dogs in Animal Control

December 2, 2013

If you are missing a dog, please check the dogs in Animal Control in the City of Hereford Animal Shelter on the corner of N. Progressive Road and 15th Street.  The dogs in the kennels 1 through 14 which starts in the middle of the row of kennels and goes east are dogs that have been picked up by Animal Control. These dogs are generally only held for 72 hours (3 days) and then usually become available for adoption or because of space limitations may be euthanized.

If your dog is missing, check the Animal Control kennels every day.  If your dog is in one of the Animal Control kennels, please call the non-emergency number for the Hereford Police Department 806-363-7120.  It will help if you know the kennel number and 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.  Having your dog Microchipped means it can be identified even if the collar is missing.  Other tips to help in finding a lost dog:  have current pictures of your dog including one taken from the front and one taken from the side at the level of the dog that shows all of him including his feet and tail, make flyers to hand out and post that include pictures and a written description of the dog and how to reach you if someone finds or sees the dog. Dogs picked up by an Animal Control Officer cannot be released to the owner by any member of the Humane Society.  The owners have to go through Animal Control or the Police.

The 4 kennels on the east side of the row of kennels are quarantine kennels.  Any information about these dogs has to come from Animal Control or the Police.

The 6 kennels on the west end of the row of kennels numbered 1 through 6 are used by the Humane Society.  These dogs are available for adoption.  Occasionally a few dogs in Animal Control who are still there after 72 hours or who have been surrendered by their owners are available for adoption through the Humane Society.  These dogs are only held if space in Animal Control is available.  If you are interested in one of these dogs, please call the Humane Society number as soon as possibly.  When we have cats for adoption, they are kept in a separate room inside the building.  Appointments are necessary to adopt or meet the animals.  Please call 806-363-6499 for more information or to set up an appointment.
