This sweet dog needs reassurance, a little attention and a new family to love him.

One of this week’s featured pets up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society is Snoop, a two to three-year-old male Pit Bull/Terrier mix.
“He is a little shy around new people, but warms up quickly,” ECHS executive director Serena Wright told Beneath the Surface News. “He does great with kids, but lacks confidence and will look to you for reassurance when he begins to feel uncomfortable.
“He wants attention so bad, but will flinch sometimes with the first few pets until he realizes you aren't going to hurt him. He loves giving kisses and prefers to give them on your chin.”
Snoop has never been around cats, but is good with other dogs. A meet-and-greet is always recommended for families with other animals.
“He loves water and getting sprayed with the water hose,” Serena said.
Snoop walks well on a leash and has been an outside dog his entire life, but does well when he is crated.
“He is learning some basic commands like sit and lay, but is not super treat or toy motivated. He is actually scared of squeaky toys,” Serena said.
Snoop is neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm negative and on prevention.
Orbit is a five to six-month-old female domestic shorthair.
“She was brought in with her siblings and a feral mom,” Serena said. "She is still a little standoffish with people, but has gotten to the point where she will come to the front of the kennel and talk to you if you are talking to her.”
Orbit should warm up quickly when adopted into a home that has more time to spend with her. She enjoys playing with other kittens and would likely do well with another cat.
Orbit is spayed, fully vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and litterbox trained.
She has been at the shelter since May.
