This week's featured pet is a little guy named Hobo, a terrier mix who Erath County Humane Society Executive Director Diane McCoy estimates is about three years old.

“He was a stray, all dirty and matted, but now that he’s cleaned up and fed, he’s great with other dogs and people. He’s very playful and he’s crate trained, so he should be easy to house train. He’s pretty quiet and I think he’ll make someone a great lap dog for petting and watching TV," she said. “I think he’d just be great with kids and make a very good walking buddy.”

Hobo’s not neutered, she added.

If you’d like to meet Hobo in person, stop by the Humane Society at 891 East Road after 1 p.m. or call 254-965-3247.
