If you’re looking for a truly sweet hound-mix pooch, you need look no further than the Erath County Humane Society where Crackers lives at the moment.

ECHS Executive Director Diane McCoy estimates that Crackers is between one and two years old, and pointing to a small wound on the very tip of her tail, says, “She keeps opening that back up because she wags her tail so much and bangs it in the fence.”

She laughs and says, “I guess you could call it a minor tail-wagging injury. Fortunately, it’s nothing serious and it’s not infected; we keep putting medication on it so it’s clean.”

Because of her age, if Crackers has been spayed, there’s no scar showing from it, McCoy says.

“She’s going to need her rabies shots anyway, so a vet can tell the new owner if she’s spayed or not.”

McCoy says Crackers is friendly with people and great with other dogs.

“She loves to play and she’s pretty much happy all the time. Crackers came in as a stray, but she’s in very good shape and someone has taught her the ‘sit’ command, so it should be easy to train her to do other things.”

You can meet Crackers — or any of the other dogs or cats, puppies or kittens currently living at the ECHS by stopping in at 891 East Road or calling 254-965-3247 for more information.
