There isn't anything cuter in the world than a puppy. Their playfulness is unmatched and the love they have to give is neverending.

A perk about owning a puppy is getting to smell that aromatic 'puppy breath'! The licks and 'kisses' that they give are a bonus.

This week the Humane Society's Pets Fur People in Tyler has sent us a cute 6-month-old male Siberian Husky mix that goes by the name River to feature as our Pet Of The Week.

Without a doubt, this cute black and white ball of joy with some ice-blue eyes is going to go home to a loving family and it better be yours before someone else adopts him.

River weighs about 45 pounds, at just 6 months old, so he's going to be a big dog. He is very active, as any puppy should be, and will require a lot of playtime and of course training time too.

He can be trained and will be a quick learner and a great addition to your family.

River will go home with a starter kit of food, a collar, and a leash. For information on adopting River call 903 597-2471 or check the Humane Society’s Pets Fur People website. Pets Fur People requires a completed adoption application before arranging a meet and greet.

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.
