Adopt-a-pet (March 24)

Recently the Kansas Humane Society took in 20 dogs from a shelter in Texas that permanently closed. Many of the dogs have been adopted, including some listed here last week. We’re spotlighting these three Texas dogs still waiting for adoption.

•  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. If you’re looking for a low-maintenance, easy-going relationship, I’m your guy! I am in foster care, so call 316-220-8713 if you are interested in learning more about me.

•  Blaze the Wallflower, 8-year-old male Labrador retriever mix.

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.

•  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.
