As a pup still, Elijah has a lot of growing up and learning to do and he'd love to do it under your guidance.

This handsome five-month-old Labrador Retriever mix puppy is a big cuddle bug at the moment. He's got lots of love, puppy energy and puppy breath kisses left to give! Elijah weighs about thirty pounds at the moment, but he's expected to be a big guy when he gets older. With puppy energy, he's also a pretty laid-back guy that will thrive in a family with children according to Pets Fur People's executive director Gayle Helms.

Elijah is currently available for adoption and he has started vaccinations, including rabies, and has been microchipped for identification purposes. Elijah will go home with a starter kit of food, a collar and leash and a certificate for half price on basic obedience training from Tyler Obedience Training Club.

For additional information on adopting Charlie call 903.597.2471 or check the Humane Society’s Pets Fur People website.

Adoption hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. - closed for lunch 1 - 2 p.m. The Humane Society’s Pets Fur People is the only brick-and-mortar no-kill shelter in East Texas.
