Doggie Dog is an 8-year-old black Labrador retriever mix. October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and to celebrate, Operation Kindness is giving away 40 pounds of Iams Dog Food with every adoption of a dog weighing 40 pounds or more. At 73 pounds, Doggie Dog qualifies for this special. Doggie Dog is friendly and loves people. He bonds quickly and is very affectionate. He gets along with some smaller dogs but would need to be the only large dog in your life. Doggie Dog is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and on heartworm preventive.
Dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are available for adoption from Operation Kindness, 3201 Earhart Drive (near Keller Springs Road and Midway Road), Carrollton.
