Doughy is available for adoption

The Elmore County Humane Society announced on Sunday that Doughy is available for adoption.

Doughy is a two-year old male. He is a mixed breed dog that looks like he could be a Pit/Akita but certainly could be other mixes. Doughy is a medium sized dog weighing a modest 65 pounds. He was found as a stray and turned into the shelter and never reclaimed.

The Shelter says that Doughy has a great personality.

"He is an absolute sweetheart, shy at first but then a huge love bug and wants nothing but attention," the shelter wrote. "He knows sit and down and has pretty good recall. Will play fetch but also easily distracted and LOVES car rides. He seems great with other dogs, actually scared of cats. Doughy came to us heartworm positive and completed his treatment last week - just one of so many we have to treat because of not being on heartworm prevention."

Doughy and more wonderful companion animals like him are available for adoption at the Elmore County Humane Society.

The adoption fees are $100 for dogs and $50 for cats under one-year-old. Cats over one-year-old can be adopted by approved adopters for a fee of their choosing. This adoption fee completely covers the mandatory spay or neuter, basic immunizations, de-worming, microchip, heartworm check for dogs, rabies vaccination if old enough, free health exam with your participating veterinarian.

If you are interested in meeting Doughy or any of the many other pets looking for their forever home, the first step is filling out the Adoption Application. You can do that here: .

Once approved, the staff at the Elmore County Humane Society will coordinate with you to set up an appointment to meet & adopt.

The Elmore County Humane Society is located at:
