Kelly is a two-and-a-half-year-old female German Shepherd mix that is currently available for adoption from the Humane Society's Pets Fur People in Tyler.

Kelly had an extremely hard start to life. She was abused, abandoned, and left for dead after someone intentionally injured her. Kelly was dumped off on the side of a busy highway with a severe gaping wound to her neck.

Pets Fur People's executive director Gayle Helms describes her injury as if someone had cut her neck from ear to ear. Kelly spent several months in rehab at the vet's office and shelter and has since made a full recovery.

She is somewhat spoiled though thanks to the attention during her water therapy. Kelly is extremely sweet, peaceful, and loving. She still has quite a bit of puppy vibes in her. She gets excited, loves to play and loves human interaction despite of being grossly misstreated early in her puppy life.

Kelly is quite fond of Milk Bone and bacon-wrapped treats. She is leash-trained but will need some gentle schooling when it comes to housetraining.

She will also go home with a starter kit of food, a collar, and a leash. For information on adopting Kelly call 903 597-2471 or check the Humane Society’s Pets Fur People website. Pets Fur People requires a completed adoption application before arranging a meet and greet.
