Pet of the Week Dec. 21, 2021 – The Advocate-Messenger

This week is our special pet Lux, a 2-year-old mixed-bred dog who came to us when his owner was no longer able to take care of him. She hated saying goodbye to him, “Lux is the best dog ever.” We’ve only known Lux for a few days, but he’s definitely a contender for that title!

Lux is a big boy with a thick, luxurious white coat lightly sprinkled with black spots – could he have Dalmation in his DNA? A handsome man can seem majestic at first; But, a laid-back Lux for a youngster of his age and size, he calmly greets everyone he meets.

Lux is very intelligent, quick to learn, and has an understanding of basic commands. At times he can be stubborn too, so his new family will want to keep training to keep this neat pants focused and on his best behavior!

In addition to constant training, Lux will enjoy regular jogging or hiking and additional enrichment with treats or games to keep him occupied. While we don’t have information on his feelings about felines, we do know that Lux gets along with other dogs, loves children, and basically wants to be with his people as much as possible (err, claws?!).

Can we have cute luxe in a warm and cozy holiday home? Right now, his adoption fee is only $53, and Luxe is repaired, fortified, and microchipped, too! Complete an online application: and bring your dog and family between 1pm and 4pm to meet them before Wednesday of this week.

Please note that DBCHS is closed on Thursday and Friday, December 23 and 24, and next Thursday and Friday, December 30 and 31, on holidays. If you cannot get to the shelter during business hours, email to schedule an appointment instead.

It’s the last chance to help us make it a comfortable and happy season for the animals in our care: be a babysitter for Christmas or the long weekend of New Year. We will provide you with all the supplies you need; You save space, socialization, and a lot of TLC.

Pets are much happier and healthier in a home environment than they are in a kennel, no matter how kind and knowledgeable the shelter staff is. Help us take the first steps to making shelter your last resort and sign up today! For more information, email and register here:
Whether you adopt or not, we appreciate your support throughout the year; We can do what we do because of you.
