Aqucha is one happy hound. He’s a 5-month-old tricolored shepherd mix with a super smile and winning personality. Aqucha is playful, energetic and full of fun. He will make a great canine companion for a person or family with an active lifestyle and a fondness for larger dogs.
Aqucha and many other dogs, puppies, cats and kittens are available for adoption from Dallas Animal Services, 1818 N. Westmoreland at I-30, just minutes west of Downtown Dallas. The shelter is open Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-6:30 p.m. and Sundays noon-5 p.m. The regular adoption cost is $85 for dogs and $55 for cats, but discounts are offered for older animals and those in the shelter longer than 45 days, and to senior citizens and those who adopt two animals at the same time. All dogs are tested for heartworms, and cats have been tested for FeLV. For more info, visit DallasAnimalServices.org, or call 214-671-0249.
