Pet of the Week: Amelia the Shepherd/Hound Mix Dog [PHOTOS]

All of us at I-92 WLWI love our pets, and know so many loving dogs and cats at the Humane Society of Elmore County would love to have their forever home with a loving family. That’s why we’re stepping up to create awareness with the Pet of the Week campaign.

Here’s our latest Pet of the Week! The shelter shares, “Amelia came to us as a stray very thin and covered in fleas and ticks. She rather looks like a Shepherd/Hound type mix but has the drive and ‘mouthiness’ of a Heeler so perhaps all three, or who knows. She is about one-year old, not a big girl at only about 35 lbs. She is ACTIVE though – loves to run and run and run some more. She loves toys. Big NO to cats, but good with dogs. Because she shows a bit of that Heeler ‘nippiness’ older children only please.”

Adoption fees are $100 for dogs & $50 for cats under one-year-old; cats over one-year-old can be adopted by approved adopters for a fee of their choosing. This adoption fee completely covers the mandatory spay or neuter, basic immunizations, de-worming, microchip, heartworm check for dogs, rabies vaccination if old enough, free health exam with your participating veterinarian.
