Adoptable Dogs

Van Zandt County Humane Society is a "No Kill" Shelter

Our medical procedures begin with heartworm testing for all canines over 10 months and leukemia testing for felines. All pets in our care are up to date on vaccinations and, if over 4 months old, have been spayed or neutered and given their rabies vaccinations, as well as heartworm prevention. A free spay/neuter certificate is offered at one of our participating clinics for all unaltered pets adopted.

State law requires any animal adopted from a shelter or rescue group be altered. If not altered at the time of adoption, a female will need to be spayed when she reaches 6 months and a male when he reaches 8 months. The Society recommends that all animals be altered at 4 months.

 Todd is a Lab Shepherd Mix. Born 11/11/14

Todd, brother to Cora and Bonnie, with a different set of character flaws.  He also is a special needs boy that is extremely fearful and if adopted will need to have limited freedom by his new people.  He needs to learn not to be fearful in his new environment and that can only be achieved with limited freedom and constant interaction with people.  He is not a fear biter but tries to withdraw instead.  He seems to do fine with other dogs but does try to be dominant with his littermates.  He does not have recall because of his fearfulness and will run off but seems to stay around the area if he gets loose. 

 He has never messed in the house so can be housetrained, but he acts claustrophobic when indoors.  He walks well on a lead.  He has never been abused since he has been in the system since 8 wks. of age.  It is just his character and will need a special person who will love him and give him time to adjust.  He cannot just be put out into the yard and be expected to respond well to a person.  That will only accelerate his fear factor.

Above all this he is a sweet boy and gentle natured.

Todd has been neutered, micro-chipped and is on heart worm preventative. He is up to date on his vaccinations.
