The Kansas Humane Society recently took in 20 dogs from a shelter in Texas that permanently closed. Many of the dogs have already been adopted, but here are five Texas dogs waiting for adoption: Ike, Blaze, Midnight, Paco and Thumper.
Ike the Couch Potato, 5-year-old male Labrador retriever mix.
I was super-shy but my foster mom is proud of me because I have made a ton of progress. I don’t bark, I never have accidents in the house, and when "Mom" is gone, I am free to roam, because I don’t chew or get into things I’m not supposed to. Sudden movements or loud noises startle me, but I’ll be OK after a few minutes. So, if you’re looking for a low-maintenance, easy-going relationship, I’m your guy! I am in foster care, so please call 316-220-8713 if you are interested in learning more about me.
Blaze the Wallflower, 8-year-old male Labrador retriever mix.
Never miss a local story.
I’m a shy yet charming canine searching for a patient owner with a relaxed lifestyle. I recently visited a care facility for Project Companionship, and I rode well in the car. I was shy at first but warmed up and ended up being very open to affection from others. Sometimes, I even got frisky and playful like a puppy. I’m really good walking on a leash too. I would appreciate a quiet environment without too much hustle, bustle and noise. I’m available for adoption at KHS.
Midnight the Wallflower, 7-year-old male Labrador retriever mix.
At my foster home I’m starting to relax, run and enjoy myself. I walk nicely on a leash but as a 7-year-old, I think my best asset is "chilling." I am not rambunctious in the house, and I like being brushed, having my teeth attended to and ears cleaned. Noisy, busy places make me nervous, so I would prefer a quiet home with a crate I can call my own. I am in foster care, so please call 316-220-8713 if you are interested in learning more about me.
Paco the Wallflower, 1-year-old male Chihuahua mix.
I’m a bit shy right now from all the changes of coming to KHS from Texas. Once I warm up to you, I’ll give you puppy kisses and sit on your lap. My foster mom says I’m a loving and kind sweetheart. I am in foster care, so please call 316-220-8713 if you are interested in learning more about me.
Thumper the Wallflower, 7-year-old male Labrador-shepherd mix.
Hi! I’m Thumper and I’m ready for a home of my own. Considering my journey from Texas and all the goings on here and there, I am a bit shy. So I’m looking for gentle guidance to help me come out of my shell. Treat me sweet and kind and I’ll blossom. I’m available for adoption at the Kansas Humane Society.
