BruceBruce is a 2-year-old beagle mix. He has a short, white coat with a black-and-brown mask on half of his face and a sprinkling of black freckles on his ears. Bruce is a happy guy who smiles a lot and stands on his back feet to clap his front paws together when he’s excited. He’s good with other dogs and just loves people.

Westmoreland at I-30 on the northeast corner. The shelter is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m.; closed Mondays. The cost to adopt is $85 for dogs and $55 for cats and includes spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and more. All dogs are negative for heartworms, and cats have been tested for FeLV and FIV. For more information, visit or call 214-671-0249.
