Big Guy, known affectionately as B.G., is a handsome, friendly 89-pound lump of love. He’s about 8 years old and was found as a stray. Because of his age and size, he’s on a special diet and needs raised water and food bowls. B.G. is a great dog who loves to go for car rides and walks. He’s good with most other large dogs, but not small dogs or cats. He’s clean in his kennel so he might be housebroken, too. Big Guy has been at Operation Kindness for 18 months and would love to spend the rest of his life in a home rather than a shelter.
Dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are available for adoption from Operation Kindness, 3201 Earhart Drive (near Keller Springs Road and Midway Road), Carrollton. The no-kill shelter is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (until 8 p.m. Thursday) and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Cost to adopt is $110 for cats and kittens and $135 for dogs and puppies. The cost includes spay or neuter surgery, microchipping, vaccinations and other tests. Those 65 and above and those who adopt two pets at the same time get a $20 discount. For more information call 972-418-PAWS, or visit www.operationkindness.org.
