One of this week’s featured pets up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society is Boo, a two to three-year-old female Lab mix.


“She is very friendly and does well with other dogs, older kids and meeting new people,” ECHS executive director Serena Wright told Beneath the Surface News. “She loves her toys, but can be possessive of them.”

Boo walks well on a leash and loves to ride in cars.


“She does have a tendency to jump on people and doesn't understand how big she is,” Serena said. “She is mostly housebroken, but will have an accident if left to hold it too long.”


Boo is very energetic and would be best suited for an active home or one willing to take her on adventures.

She has some separation anxiety when left alone, but crates well.

Boo is spayed, microchipped, heart worm negative and on prevention.


She has been at the shelter since May 24.


Pearl is a nine to 10-month-old female domestic shorthair.

“She was surrendered because her owner had too many cats,” Serena said. “She does well with other cats, but I’m not sure about dogs.


“Her former owner said she is also good with children.”


Poor Pearl has been terrified since arriving at the shelter and is very shy.

“She usually warms up to women better than men and enjoys back rubs, but does not like her head scratched.


“Her new owner will need to be patient until she warms up.”


Pearl is spayed, microchipped and litter box trained.

She has been at the shelter since June 16.

If you would like to meet Boo, Pearl or the other 96 dogs and 59 cats that need homes, stop by the shelter located at 891 East Road in Stephenville.
