Dax has led the life of an apartment dog. He's now looking for a new family to call his own and hopes they have a backyard for him to run and play in.

Dax was surrendered to Pets Fur People in Tyler, Texas because his owners were going through a divorce and apparently neither one of them had the time to care for this 7-year-old guy. They were the only people he knew and they abandoned him at the shelter.

Dax is a Catahoula and Plotthound mix. He weighs about 80 pounds and is a pretty docile and calm guy. He's lived in an apartment for more than 6 years and he's pretty smart too. He has been house-trained and knows some basic commands.

Pets Fur People's executive director Gayle Helms says Dax is a "sweet guy [who] plays well with children, knows some basic commands, and likes to ride in the car." He's apparently a big couch potato too.

He will go home with a starter kit of food, a big fluffy dog bed, a collar and leash, and a certificate for half-price basic obedience training from Tyler Obedience Training Club.

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