One of this week’s featured pets up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society is Oslo, a two-year-old male German Shepherd/Husky mix.


“Oslo is very friendly, energetic and loves to run,” ECHS executive director Serena Wright told Beneath the Surface News. “He is pretty good on a leash, but he does pull and he’s very strong.”

Oslo is also “talkative,” especially when he’s alone, so he probably wouldn't do well living in an apartment setting.


Oslo is neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. He is heartworm positive and potential adopters should speak to their veterinarian about treatment options.

He has been living at the shelter since June 13.


The shelter’s intake has been closed now for about two weeks after receiving a record number of dogs.


Serena said another transport of animals is leaving Erath County on Wednesday and she hopes it will free up enough crates to begin accepting more animals.

There are now 77 dogs and 61 cats living at the shelter.


One of those includes Adira, a 10-week-old female domestic shorthair kitten.


“Adira was very spicy when she came in, but she is really shy and sweet and will need someone with patience,” Serena said.

Adira is litter box trained, but is too young to be microchipped.


She has had her kitten shots and will be required to be spayed by the adopter when she is older.
