All the animals in the shelter deserve to be loved despite their age. Of course, cute puppies get all the attention, but it's the older dogs that will bring so much joy to your life because they've lived a little life themselves.

This week's Pet Of The Week is five-year-old Cheyenne. Cheyenne is a hound mix that is currently available for adoption from Pets Fur People in Tyler.

Cheyenne is a bit of a bigger dog, coming in a 75 pounds, she's almost six years old and has been living at Pets Fur People for a little over two months now. She entered the shelter in early July. According to Pets Fur People's executive director Gayle Helms, Cheyenne is shy until she trusts you, and then she's a ball of energy once the trust has been established.

After trust, get ready for a sweet and playful girl that has so much love to share with a new owner if just given the chance. Gayle believes that Cheyenne would thrive as a member of a family with older children.

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

For additional information on adopting Cheyenne call 903.597.2471 or check the Humane Society’s Pets Fur People website. Pets Fur People requires a completed adoption application before a meet and greet can be arranged. Check out the animals that are available for adoption. Adoption hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 am until 5 pm - closed for lunch 1-2 pm. The Humane Society’s Pets Fur People is the only brick-and-mortar no-kill shelter in East Texas. Pets Fur People offers routine vaccinations, except for rabies, to the public for dogs and cats. Follow Pets Fur People on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Please be a responsible pet owner - spay or neuter your pets. Donations are appreciated.
