Clyde is about 4 years old. Clyde has been fully vetted and had a broken hind leg repaired. He is a terrier mix. He is very animated and funny to observe and walks well on a leash. Clyde still needs a little bit of work on house training. He would love to be the only dog, as he wants all of the attention. He gets along with other dogs. We haven't had an opportunity to see if he gets along with cats. He is very playful and full of energy. He loves to hang out in the yards and watch for unsuspecting squirrels. Clyde must have a fenced in yard to play in. He comes with a free wellness exam from Pleasant Grove Animal Hospital.

Clyde is not at the shelter any longer. He is in Passion for Pooches Dog Rescue. For more information about Clyde, call 903-276-4770.

Our local animal shelter always has so many dogs available for adoption. There are also puppies, cats and kittens available for adoption. The others are waiting for their chance to get on the adoption floor so please consider adding a furry friend to your family. There are many different breeds and sizes of dogs at the shelter. Check out the video below that shows all of the dogs on the adoption floor. Small, medium or large...whatever size you are looking for you can find at our local animal shelter. The fee to adopt a dog from the shelter is only $40 and just $20 for a cat. All animals adopted from the shelter must be spayed or neutered--its the law. Spays cost from $89 to $104 and neuters are $76 to $92. The price varies depending on the weight of the animal.

Every Tuesday we have a dog in our Power 95.9 Studios from the local animal shelter in hopes of finding it a new home. It is always a dog because we (Wes and Mimi) are allergic to cats.

Our local shelter usually has over 100 dogs and over 30 cats available for adoption every day. There are many more animals located in the holding areas "downstairs" that are either waiting for their owners to reclaim them or hoping for a spot on the adoption floor to open. There were only a few adoptions last week which means there were a lot of animals that had to be euthanized. To see more of the adoptable animals visit the shelter at 203 Harrison in Texarkana, Arkansas or check out their website at

Did you know that one unspayed dog and her offspring, can reproduce over 65,000 dogs in just six years. You do not have to wait until your pet is 6 months old to get them fixed. Pediatric spay and neuter is available in Texarkana. Check with the great folks at Pleasant Grove Animal Hospital!

Pleasant Grove Animal Hospital has a Pet Health Care Library. Check out their website because they also provide the links to websites that provide some great information on a variety of topics related to veterinary medicine and pet health care.
