The gentlest dog I ever met came to visit this week. Officer Hetzel from the Temple Animal Shelter brought Girl.  She is a red Boxer mix weighing almost 80 pounds. Girl is very docile and just wants love and approval.

Girl used to be an outside dog, but Officer Hetzel says she appears to be housebroken. She is also leash trained. Girl recently had a litter of puppies so she still needs to be spayed, which Officer Hetzel will help you get for $45 dollars. The discount is available thanks to the Greater Temple Belton Foundation for Animal Care.  Emancipet of Killeen also offers low cost spay and neuter services

Officer Hetzel thinks an older couple would be perfect for Girl since she is not hyper and just wants to be loved.   Stop by and see her at the Temple Animal shelter, 620 Mama Dog Circle.  You can also see more adoptable pets at the City of Temple Website.


You don't have to adopt in Temple. Visit the animal shelter in your city. I know they have lots of dogs and cats who need a home.
