Sandy a three year old hound mix that is available for adoption at the Humane Society’s Pets Fur People in Tyler. Sandy was surrendered to Pets Fur People because of the failing health of her owner. She weighs about forty five pounds and has been spayed, is current on starting vaccinations including rabies and has been microchipped for identification purposes. Sandy is a very happy dog, according to Pets Fur People's Executive Director, Gayle Helms. Sandy looks like she is smiling all the time and her tail never stops wagging. Gayle believes Sandy would thrive as a member of an active family with kids and other dogs. She 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.
