Say hi to Pasta! This sweet girl and her puppies arrived at the animal shelter as strays.
One of this week’s featured pets up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society is Pasta, a two to three-year-old female Hound/Lab mix.
“This sweet girl and her puppies were found as strays,” ECHS executive director Serena Wright told Beneath the Surface News. “She is very treat-motivated, but needs to be taught not to snatch treats from your hand.
“She is always ready to go and would love a family that could take her out to explore new places.”
Pasta is dog friendly, but a meet-and-greet is recommended for families with other dogs.
“She walks fairly well on a leash, but pulls if something catches her attention,” Serena said.
Pasta is spayed, fully vaccinated, heartworm negative and on prevention. She has been at the shelter since March. Bugsy is a one to two-year-old female domestic shorthair Tortie.
“This sweet lady was surrendered because she was no longer wanted,” Serena said. “She was adopted and returned because she is very active at night and wants to play.”
Bugsy is good with dogs, but dislikes other cats.
“She does fine with kids but is wary of new people coming in the home,” Serena said. “She is a very vocal if you walk in a room and don’t give her attention.”
Bugsy is very affectionate and loves getting pets and scratches, but she hates being cooped up in her kennel.
Bugsy is spayed, fully vaccinated, microchipped and litterbox trained. She has been at the shelter since June.
If you would like to meet Pasta, Bugsy or the other 81 dogs and 74 cats that need homes, stop by the shelter at 891 East Road in Stephenville.
