This beautiful boy was named "Springs" by the Shelter, due to his impressive vertical jumping ability. I call him "Pogo." I like to think it humanizes him a bit more, while respecting his history. He's been my foster for six months now. His defect: He chews (destroys property) when unattended. Perhaps this is ongoing puppy-behavior, perhaps he just doesn't like being alone. I'm confident this behavior will diminish over time, with lots of personal attention. Springs may be 1.5 years old now, and 60 lbs. (Springs's estimated age/weight was 1 yr/40 lbs. when I took him. He was NOT underfed! His apparent weight gain while under my care suggests he is still quite young.) Breed: Kelpie! Springs is neutered. When I first took him, Springs showed little interest in people. He has made huge progress, and we are now very attached to each other. Springs walks on a leash with a training collar, and knows SIT, SHAKE HANDS, OFF, and LEAVE IT. He enjoys fetching a ball. When he sleeps inside, Springs has a history of zero accidents. Springs gets along with my six other dogs, and ignores cats. We have no experience with small children. I doubt he would be hostile, but his play can be a bit reckless. I would keep him, problems notwithstanding, if I didn't already have six dogs. This boy is flat-out gorgeous, and a baby doll at heart! Springs needs lots of exercise - a large fenced yard, free of valuable property, would be ideal. When it's his turn, Springs loves to sleep next to me in my bed and is very well behaved.

About Pulaski County Humane Society

About Our Rescue Group...

The Pulaski County Humane Society is a growing number of volunteers who feel that animals are an important part of lives here in Pulaski County. Our animals reside primarily in foster homes, so we are limited in the number of animals we can rescue. We always need more volunteers to help us save more pets.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have monthly Adoptathons on the 3rd Saturday of each month at Somerset Mall in Somerset, Kentucky. We also have a monthly adopt-a-thon on the first Saturday of each month at PetSense in Somerset. You can also make appointments to meet the animals by calling 606-451-2367.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process consists of the adopters meeting the animals, filling out a bit of paper work, paying the adoption fee, and agreeing to a post-placement home visit. The adoption fees are: $95 for dogs/puppies older than 6 months and $125 for puppies under 6 months old.
