Pet of the Week Dec. 21, 2021

Published 11:59 pm Monday, December 20, 2021

This week our featured pet is Lux, a two-year-old mixed breed dog who came to us when his owner could no longer care for him. She hated to say goodbye to him, saying, “Lux is the best dog ever.” We’ve only known Lux for a few days, but he’s definitely a contender for that top title!

Lux is a big boy with a thick, luxurious white coat lightly sprinkled with black spots – could he have Dalmation in his DNA? The handsome guy can seem imposing at first; but, Lux is laid-back for a pup of his age and size, greeting everyone he meets calmly.

Lux is super-smart and a quick learner with an understanding of basic commands. Sometimes he can be stubborn, too, so his new family will want to continue training to keep this smarty-pants focused and on his best behavior!

In addition to continued training, Lux would enjoy regular runs or hikes and extra enrichment with treats or toys to keep him busy. Although we don’t have info on his feelings about felines, we know Lux gets along with other dogs, loves kids, and basically wants to be with his people as much as possible (err, pawsible?!).

Can we get sweet Lux into a warm and cozy Home for the Holidays? Right now, his adoption fee is only $53, and Lux is fixed, vaccinated, and microchipped, too! PLEASE NOTE that DBCHS is closed to the public December 21-December 26, and next Thursday and Friday, December 30 and 31, so call 859.238.1117 or email karikuh@dbchs.org to set up an appointment to meet Lux and our other adoptable dogs.

It’s the last chance to help us make it a relaxing and happy pawliday season for animals in our care: be a foster for Christmas or the New Year long weekends. We’ll provide all the supplies you need; you provide space, socialization, and a lot of TLC.

Pets are so much happier and healthier in a home setting than they are in a kennel, no matter how kind and knowledgeable shelter staff may be. Help us take the first steps to make the shelter be the last resort and sign up to foster today! Email dbchs@bellsouth.net for more information and register here: https://bit.ly/3bNErhD.
Whether you foster or not, we appreciate your support year-round; we can do what we do because of you.

From all of us at DBCHS to you and yours: have a warm and wonderful holiday!
