Meet Ernie! He is our US 105 Pet of the Week.

Ernie is waiting for a new home down at the Temple Animal Shelter! He is leash trained, housebroken and is very friendly.

Ernie is looking for a family to join for the spring. He's a Dachsund who loves to run around and play, but he's just as happy to lay still and have ya rub his belly. Ernie is a smaller dog who loves attention and meeting new people.

Stop by the Animal Shelter in Temple at 620 Mama Dog Circle near the corner of Avenue H and 31st Street. You can call the shelter and ask them if you can bring the pets a treat at 254-298-5732. Of course, you cal always see a photo of all the pets at the City of Temple Website.

Listen each Friday afternoon for Walter Hetzel, Director of Animal Services for the City of Temple, and the US 105 Pet of the Week.
