Kids need a dog in their life. Having a dog around to play fetch with, take on a walk, sleep with, and love on makes life a whole lot sweeter. Having a dog in Tyler, Texas also teaches your kids responsibility because they have to care for them and ensure they have clean water and food. If your family doesn't have a dog yet, you'll definitely want to head to the Humane Society's Pets Fur People in Tyler and meet up with Angel.

Angle is a 3-year-old gorgeous Blue Heeler and Australian Cattle dog mix. She has a beautiful white coat mixed in with some black spots like many heelers do. Her face is tri-colored, thanks to the unique markings on her right eye, with a black patch that is highlighted with a light tan color.

She can be a bit shy at first but opens up to people, especially older children and she loves the company of other dogs. Being part cattle dog, Angel loves to run and play so let's hope you have a good-sized backyard for her to run and exercise.

This sixty-pound girt will go home with a starter kit of food, a big fluffy dog bed, a collar and leash, and a certificate for half-price basic obedience training from Tyler Obedience Training Club.

For additional information on adopting Angel call 903.597.2471 or check the Humane Society’s Pets Fur People website. Pets Fur People requires a completed adoption application before a meet and greet can be arranged. Check out the animals that are available for adoption. Adoption hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 am until 5 pm - closed for lunch 1-2 pm. The Humane Society’s Pets Fur People is the only brick-and-mortar no-kill shelter in East Texas. Pets Fur People offers routine vaccinations, except for rabies, to the public for dogs and cats. Follow Pets Fur People on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Please be a responsible pet owner - spay or neuter your pets. Donations are appreciated.
