One of this week’s featured pets up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society is Showman, a two-year-old male Lab Pyrenees mix.


“He is a very sweet boy that walks well on a leash,” ECHS executive director Serena Wright told Beneath the Surface News. “He does pretty well with other dogs, but does have a dominant personality. He gets along with cats, but plays pretty rough with them, and is timid around cattle and chickens.

“He is very people friendly and loves getting attention. He also likes to alert people of threats, but does not do so without a cause.”


Showman is housebroken and does okay in a kennel, but due to his size, shouldn't stay in one for long.

He is also microchipped, heart worm negative and on prevention. Milo is an eight-year-old male Domestic Longhair described as a “laid back older gentleman.”

“He is good with dogs as long as they are introduced slowly,” Serena said. “He enjoys the company of children and likes to be brushed.”


Milo is litter box trained, neutered and microchipped.


If you would like to meet Showman, Milo or the other 64 dogs or 33 cats that need new homes, stop by the animal shelter at 801 East Road in Stephenville.
