SAN ANGELO, Texas (Concho Valley Homepage) — Concho Valley PAWS posted on their Facebook page that nine dogs are currently at risk of being “destroyed” if not found homes by 5 p.m. Friday, February 10, 2023.
Editors note: A ninth dog has been added to the list on the City of San Angelos’s Facebook page
The San Angelo Animal Shelter is currently at capacity with 180 dogs on the premise with more on the way.
Listed below is a description of each at-risk dog from Concho Valley PAWS:
Leavey is a neutered male husky. High energy! Needs training and PAWS will provide new owners with professional training. He is 2 years and plays well in playgroup but requires 6 ft. fencing. No cats!
Charming is a 2-year-old male All-American Mix and prefers to be an only dog. He may do well with a submissive female in the home. He needs leash training. He does well with older children. He is still shy and a bit fearful so younger children may scare him. No cats!
Zeus is around 5 years old. He is a male lab mix that loves humans but not other animals. He does well on a leash and in a kennel. He’s neutered and ready to go home TODAY! No Cats!
Gilgo has been fostered!
Gilgo has anxiety issues and needs patience. He is GREAT with other dogs but does not trust humans and fear prevents him from showing well to adopters. He has the potential to be someone’s best friend. He needs a kind and patient soul to invest time and effort and we know he’s worth it! We are unsure if he will get along with cats.
Yowza has been fostered!
Yowza is a female lab mix. She is one year old and has spent her life in the shelter and hasn’t even had a chance. She deserves to know what it’s like to be a part of a loving family! She’s high energy and needs training – she’s been confined her entire life. She does great with other dogs in the playgroup! PAWS will provide new owners with professional training. We are unsure if she will get along with cats.
Gummy Bear came to the shelter from a hoarding situation. He is shy and standoffish. He is fearful of men. He does great with other dogs – he lived in a home with 20 small dogs. But humans he does not trust. He is a male All-American breed approximately 3 years old.
Chewie is dog-selective and kennel reactive. He could benefit from living in a foster home where we could better get to know who he really is without the stress of the shelter environment. He is a large 60lb male dog and is approximately 2 years old.
Tac has been Adopted!
Tac is a super fun boy with zero manners. Prior to living in the shelter, he had no opportunity for proper socialization or training. He has the potential to be a fantastic dog. He is loving and playful and has joy in life. PAWS will provide professional training for his new owner or foster.
Cheyenne is the ninth dog at risk and is listed as a Terrier, American Pit Bull / Mix. She is four years and six months old. Cheyenne is a natural cuddle bug. She is super sweet and affectionate to humans but was not properly socialized as a young dog so she does not like other dogs or cats. Cheyenne is a very laid-back and calm girl. She enjoys walking on a leash and just soaks up loving attention. She will make someone an excellent companion. She is absolutely worth saving!
