Don’t you love basset hounds? Meet Duke, a 9 year old basset hound available for adoption at the Humane Society’s Pets Fur People in Tyler. Duke weighs about 60 pounds and is a sweet low ride. This big guy would be best suited in a household that would allow him to be a big couch potato. Duke is very sweet and calm and loves everybody. He would make a wonderful family dog. Duke has been neutered, is current on starting vaccinations including rabies and has been microchipped for identification purposes. In addition, Duke will go home with a starter kit of food, bedding, a collar and leash and a certificate for 1/2 price on basic obedience from Tyler Obedience Training Club. For information on adopting Duke, call 903-597-2471 or check the Humane Society’s Pets Fur People website – petsfurpeople.org. Due to COVID-19, Pets Fur People is closed to the public and is doing adoptions by appointment only.
Adoption hours are 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday — closed for lunch 1 to 2 p.m. The Humane Society’s Pets Fur People is the only brick-and-mortar no-kill shelter in East Texas. They offer dog boarding and routine vaccinations except for rabies to the public for dogs and cats. Follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Please be a responsible pet owner — spay or neuter your pets. Donations are appreciated at petsfurpeople.org.
