petThis gentle creature doesn’t yet have a name, so ask for #A785682. He is an adult large shepherd mix with a sweet disposition. Although found as a stray, he has the manners of a dog who once had a person. His black coat has tips of brown and his eyes will melt your heart. See what a great friend he can be at Dallas Animal Services, 1818 N. Westmoreland at I-30 in Dallas.


The Adoption Center is open 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday to Saturday and noon until 5 p.m. on Sunday. All adopted pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Standard adoption fees are $85 for dogs and $55 for cats, but right now they’re offering $30 adoption fees for pets 1 year or older. We also offer discounts on adoption fees for pets who have been at the Adoption Center more than 4 weeks, for pets over 6 years of age, to any senior citizen that adopts a pet, and to anyone adopting more than one pet at a time.
