Hi, animal lovers. From previous weeks, Minty and Dylan are still waiting for their forever homes, but sweet Harper has been adopted. This week meet Knox, a young and fun pup who recently landed at the SPCA of Texas after being transferred from another shelter.

Could this lively, happy and well-behaved pup be the newest addition to your pack? Let’s find out.

Breed: Shepherd mix

Age: 7 months

Weight: 32 pounds

Personality: Knox likes to roll around in the grass and play like any young pup would. He is very shy when he first meets people, but he has spent time in a foster home, where he learned to gain some confidence. He adores belly rubs and stretching out his long legs. He also has a great bark and howl, and he loves to talk. In his foster home, he played with another dog; in fact, they were best friends. He would love to go to a home with another furry friend.

Vital stats: Knox has been neutered and microchipped, and he has been given all age-appropriate vaccinations.

Come meet Knox today (#135320) at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas at 2400 Lone Star Dr., near I-30 and Hampton Road. The center is open seven days a week, noon-6 pm.
