Heidi is a two-year-old mix who’s sweet, but has a sad background.

She has been chosen as this week’s featured pet from the Erath County Humane Society.

“She’s been with us for three months and came in as a stray,” said ECHS Executive Director Diane McCoy. “She was found in the country with her pup that had been shot. She wouldn’t come near people for days. We’ve worked with her and got her spayed and vetted and she’s really come around.”

Heidi has all her current vaccines, is dog friendly and loves attention.

“She gets so excited to see us now and she will make a very loyal companion,” McCoy said. “We love this girl!”

The ECHS is still adopting out kittens under the age of one for just $10 until the end of the month.
