Bubbles is this week’s Dog of the Week from the Monroe County Animal Shelter.
Bubbles is a 3-year-old female Bulldog/Old English mix who weighs 69 pounds. She is currently in a foster home. Bubbles is allowed free range of the place, and always comes when called. She is an indoor dog and either goes to the front door or noses your hand at night when she needs to go outdoors. She has never has had an accident indoors.
Bubbles is a very gentle soul. Gets on well with dogs, cats, and kids. Our cat Gizmo sleeps with her. She also likes to ride in the car and walks very well on a leash. No pulling or tugging; a three-year-old could walk her with no problem. And she LOVES to go for walks ... anywhere you want to walk, she is ready to go! Bubbles would love a home where she can be part of the family. When not playing, Bubbles enjoys a good nap.
If you are interested in meeting Bubbles, please give us a call at 423-442-1015 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a meet and greet.
When coming to the Shelter to meet a dog, please remember their true personality may not show through immediately in the shelter environment. They may consider their kennel a safe place and be uncomfortable when taken out. This doesn't mean they aren't sweet, loving dogs. It just means they are unsure or scared in this environment.
Take some time to meet each dog. Let them get used to you for a few moments before you take him/her for a walk around the shelter grounds. Once you get your new pet home, allow them time to become adjusted to their new life.
PLEASE know that the COVID-19 virus is NOT transmitted by pets. You cannot get the virus from your furry friends.
The Shelter is currently filled to near maximum capacity, so we are looking for people to help foster some of the animals. Many of the animals are housebroken, sweet, and family-friendly. They are often placed in the Shelter because their owners are no longer able to care for them. If you are interested, please call the Shelter (423-442-1015) and they will put you in touch with Cathy Barrett, Foster Coordinator.
Also, the Monroe County Sherriff’s Office has placed the trustees on lockdown; therefore, the Shelter is in desperate need of volunteers to walk the dogs and assist with other Shelter needs. If you are able to help, please call the Shelter.
