Energetic powerhouse and cat that likes to lounge in a hammock are this week’s featured pets.


Mitz

By SARA VANDEN BERGE

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


“She absolutely loves attention,” ECHS executive director Serena Wright told Beneath the Surface News. “She is crate-trained, but tends to be vocal about not wanting to be in it. She is very energetic and would rather be outside running around than cooped up.”

Despite her short stature, Mitz is a little powerhouse who does not understand her own strength.


“She needs some leash work and a lesson in manners and would probably do best in a home with older children and people without mobility issues due to the fact she could knock someone down by jumping on them,” Serena said. “She loves a good toy and soft bed.”

A meet-and-greet is recommended for families with other pets.


Mitz has been at the shelter since June.


She is spayed, microchipped, heart worm negative and on prevention.

Calypso

Calypso is a seven to eight-month-old female domestic shorthair.


“She is very friendly and loves human attention, but takes a while to warm up to other animals,” Serena said.


When she’s not zooming around in her kennel, Calypso likes to lounge in a hammock.


She is also spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and litter box trained.


If you would like to meet Mitz, Calypso or the other 87 dogs and 43 cats that need homes, stop by the shelter located at 891 East Road in Stephenville.
