Timbo

One of this week’s featured pets up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society is Timbo, a four to five-year-old male Pit Bull Terrier.


“He is a lovable boy who is a bed hog,” ECHS executive director Serena Wright told Beneath the Surface News. “He does have a tendency to jump on people to give kisses, so he may not do well in a home with small children, and he does nip sometimes when he’s playing.”

Timbo was dog tested at the shelter and did well, but showed some aggression to a dog in a foster home.


A meet-and-greet for potential adopters is recommended.


“He is very strong and needs someone who can handle him,” Serena said. “He knows basic commands like sit, stay and gentle.

“He is really vocal when he wants attention. His foster said he is the best dog they have seen in a long time and would do well in a single-family home.”


Timbo is neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped and heart worm negative.


He has been at the shelter since April 8.

Gracie

Gracie is a four-year-old female domestic shorthair.


“She is good with people, children and other cats, but can be a little anxious,” Serena said.


Gracie likes hair ties and will steal them, so you don’t want to leave them lying around.

She is also spayed, microchipped and litter box trained.


If you would like to meet Timbo, Gracie or the other 86 dogs and 67 cats that need homes, stop by the animal shelter located at 891 East Road in Stephenville.
