One of the many joys of being a pet owner is knowing there's always unconditional love waiting for you at any time. When you have an animal that is your pet, you should return that love and affection as often as you can so they know you care for them. Unfortunately Fluffy didn't receive that love from her previous owner.

Before this seven-year-old Pyrenees mix arrived at Pets Fur People in Tyler, she never received love and affection from her owner. She is looking for that with her next fur-ever family. Now we will say Fluffy is a big dog and weighs one-hundred pounds. Gayle Helms, executive director at the Humane Society's Pets Fur People, believes that Fluffy would thrive in a quiet household and says she's sweet, gentle and wants nothing more than to be a couch potato!

Fluffy rarely barks, is quiet and laid back and likes to be the queen. She's not very fond of other dogs. Fluffy has been spayed, is current on starting vaccinations, including rabies, and has been microchipped for identification purposes. Fluffy will go home with a starter kit of food, a collar and leash and a certificate for half price on basic obedience from Tyler Obedience Training Club.

For additional information on adopting Fluffy call 903.597.2471 or check the Humane Society’s Pets Fur People website.
