Tux is a mixed breed dog with a little bit of Pit Bull in him, but not much. He’s about a year old, and is very friendly. “He’s a sweet boy and gets along with everyone.” Animal Shelter Officer Barbi Blanch said. His cheerful laid-back attitude is evident as he sits patiently at Officer Blanch’s feet, waiting to go for a walk. Tux was found in the road, off the Church Street loop, about two and a half weeks ago.
Officer Blanch recommends him to families with older kids due to his energetic and fun-loving personality. Although he doesn’t like going inside kennels, he is extremely loyal. Officer Blanch described an instance where “he got loose, ran around the yard, and sat back at the front door.” Tux would be perfect for a family with a large yard and freedom to roam.
The Sulphur Springs Animal Shelter currently is home to 34 animals. They accept mostly cats and dogs, and just about anything but livestock. For more information on how to adopt a pet, visit their Website or Facebook page.
