This week’s Zack and Jim’s Waco 100’s, Pet of the Week is Milan!
Milan is an adorable, compact, sweet hambone! He’s a lively fellow, and he loves to be patted and hugged and he wouldn’t mind a bit of spoiling from his new family!
He is friendly, affectionate boy. He’s adventurous, and enjoys long walks or jogs, but he’s also fine with snuggling on the sofa, maybe sharing a snack or two or a Starbucks Puppuccino would certainly fill the bill!
Did anyone mention food? Yes, well Milan has a penchant for treats and he will defiantly snarf them down when offered! He is a stout guy, and while he’s charming, he doesn’t always understand his strength, so he’ll need an owner who can handle his muscle.
Milan’s been with kids, and he’s ready to be any “little’s” best friend. He’d certainly appreciate having built-in playmates.
Milan has been at the shelter since 9/17/18, and he is presently number 2 on the urgent list. He is a 3-year-old, male, American Staffy/English bull Terrier mix. He weighs about 55 lbs.
The Waco shelter and the Humane Society of Central Texas are once again putting out a plea to help save their long-time residents. Yesterday, they received 12 dogs before the shelter opened, and ended the evening with 30 more intakes, plus other dogs are in theholding area, waiting to be processed.
Currently, they are at full capacity and the top urgents are at risk for being euthanized. Several weeks ago, they had to put down more than a dozen, healthy, adoptable dogs because of lack of space. They do not want to have to consider this as an option again.
The Humane Society and Waco Shelter strive to maintain their no-kill status and want to continue to keep their high-ranking standing. To help find these urgents homes quickly, they are offering dogs who are already spayed and neutered free to an approved adopter. The top ten urgent dogs are also free to an approved adopter.
These dogs need the community to step up and help them save lives. Take the short drive to 2032 Circle Rd. in Waco, Texas, and meet your newest family member. Hours are 11-6.
