Dog with separation anxiety and ‘scaredy cat’ are this week’s featured pets.


Odin

By SARA VANDEN BERGE


Odin, a two-year-old male American Pit Bull Terrier, is one of this week’s featured pets up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society.


“He is a very sweet boy that was brought in as a stray,” ECHS executive director Serena Wright told Beneath the Surface News. “He is a big baby who loves attention and will let out a big ol’ cry to get it.”

Odin loves to snuggle on the couch for hours and walks well on a leash.


He has not shown any aggression toward other animals since he has been at the shelter, but a meet-and-greet is recommended for families with other dogs.

He does well with kids, cats and livestock and is very well behaved, but does suffer from separation anxiety.


“He can be destructive when he’s left alone,” Serena said. “He will need some time, patience and lots of love to help with his anxiety.”


Odin is neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, heart worm negative and on prevention.

Prim

Prim is a two-year-old male domestic shorthair.


“He was a little shy at first, but has warmed up to the shelter’s staff and loves to greet people when they come up to his kennel,” Serena said.


He is good with other cats, but doesn't like sudden movements and will hide when he’s scared.

His previous owner said he is a wonderful cat that is very friendly and sweet.


Prim is neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped and litter box trained.


If you would like to meet Odin, Prim or the other 93 dogs and 69 cats that need homes, stop by the animal shelter located at 891 East Road in Stephenville.
