This sweet guy has spent his entire puppyhood at the shelter. He desperately needs a loving home.


One of this week’s featured pets up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society is Jester, a two to three-year-old male pit mix with a sad history.

Jester first arrived at the shelter in August 2021, and was finally adopted more than a year later in September 2022.

In April of this year, Jester was brought back to the shelter after being dumped on the side of the road.

“He is a very happy boy that loves his toys,” ECHS executive director Serena Wright told Beneath the Surface News. “He loves attention and loves to cuddle.”

Jester gets along well with other dogs and has never met a stranger.

He is very energetic and uses his body weight when playing, so he would do best in a home without small children.

Jester takes treats very gently and is mostly potty-trained, but might need a refresher course since he has been at the shelter for so long.

He walks well on a leash and enjoys riding in a car and being groomed.

“He has a high prey drive, so no cats or other small animals,” Serena said. “He will need a patient owner with lots of space and time for him.

“He has spent his entire puppyhood here at the shelter, so he has never really gotten to run and play freely.”

Jester is very bright, eager to learn and will make a fantastic companion.

He is also neutered, partially vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm negative and on prevention.

Scanlan is a four to five-month-old male domestic medium hair cat.

“He is very playful, curious and likes attention,” Serena said.


Scanlan is neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and litterbox trained.

If you would like to meet Jester, Scanlan or the other 78 dogs and 57 cats that need homes, stop by the animal shelter at 891 East Road in Stephenville.
