Once you've made the decision to be a dog owner you want to find the dog that is a great fit for you and your lifestyle. A great place to begin that search is through a local animal shelter. A local shelter like the Humane Society's Pets Fur People in Tyler, Texas. Pets Fur People has a wide variety of dogs that are available for adoption.

This week we are introducing you to Tofu. Tofu is our Pet Of The Week. He's a 3-year-old terrier mix that weighs about forty pounds. He has a golden blonde coat and some long lanky legs to him! Not much is known about Tofu's background, but Gayle Helms, Pets Fur People's executive director says he is a bit shy at first and is a calm guy that walks well on a leash.

In addition to being calm, he appears to be great with children and other dogs. Tofu is just like all the other dogs in the shelter, he has a lot of unconditional love to give to you. He would really like to become a permanent fixture in your family.

Tofu 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 Tofu 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.
