| Hello! My name is Russell and believe it or not, I’m a Catahoula Leopard hound mix. What kind of dog is that
you ask? Well it’s a mix of hunting and herding dog talents. Well, I failed at some of my breed talents because they found out I was deaf. What good is a hunting dog that can’t hear – and that is how I ended up at the
shelter. I thought I was a total failure, but I was totally wrong, I didn’t know there was such a thing as a “house dog” and that is what I now am! I have many good qualities; I get along great with other dogs, don’t mind cats
at all, I’m housebroken, pretty quiet, love attention, sweet, and smart enough for you to teach me simple hand signals for the things you want of me. I’m only a year and a half old; I have my whole life ahead of me and really hope it will quickly be in a loving
home and no longer at the shelter. You see I was once adopted by a very kind man, I went home with him and within the afternoon I learned how to use the doggy door and I learned how wonderful it was to have all the
comforts of a real home, ahhhh I could never imagined how wonderful a life like this felt like. But sadly, it was over so quickly, the other house dog didn’t like me, I would just be laying there minding my own business and
he would come by and attack me for no good reason. The kind man decided it wasn’t fair to me to be treated like this and with a heavy heart returned me to the shelter – and my heart was broken. I so much want a
loving home. I understand the man had the other dog for many years and it wouldn’t be right for that dog to have to lose the home he knew, but somewhere there must be another special home just perfect for me! I
know for sure I will need a fence to keep me safe from all the dangers in the world that I can’t hear. I love meeting new people so please come see me at the shelter.
PET ANGEL PROGRAM
Is your house already full of pets, or maybe you aren't home enough to care for a pet? We have a way for you to help a shelter dog or cat find a forever home.
Elk Country Animal Shelter offers the "Pet Angel Program." It allows one person, a group of friends, or a service club, to sponsor a shelter dog or cat.
For $200 you can sponsor a dog or $150 sponsors a cat. This covers the adoption fee and provides toys, beds, a nice size bag of food, treats and a new collar and leash. And as always, the pet will be spayed or neutered, have all vaccinations and a microchip. There is a nice placard that has your name on it, that will be placed over the kennel or cat cage. You will receive a thank you, but most of all you will have helped a dog or cat who really needed a helping hand.
Think about it, won't you?
