Roger is a 2-year-old Beagle mix that has a great time wrestling with other dogs. He walks well on a leash, likes to meet everyone that passes by him, and is good with other dogs. We always advise to bring your dogs from home for an introduction. Roger would love to go home to an active and fun person or family. An apartment dwelling would not be ideal for a beagle due to their infamous howl when unfamiliar signs or sounds occur.
Roger and many other great dogs and cats are available for adoption from Operation Kindness, situated at 3201 Earhart Drive, one street south of Keller Springs and two blocks west of Midway Road, in Carrollton. The no-kill shelter is open six days a week: Monday, 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.; closed Tuesday; Wednesday, 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.; Thursday, noon to 8 p.m.; Friday, noon to 5 p.m.; Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. The cost is $110 for cats, $135 for kittens, $150 for dogs over 1 year, and $175 for puppies. The adoption cost includes the spay/neuter surgery, microchipping, vaccinations, heartworm test for dogs, leukemia and FIV test for cats, and more. Those who adopt two pets at the same time receive a $20 discount.
