Pet of the Week
Name: Carter, as in Wonder Woman Lynda Carter; basketball non-retiring Vince Carter; former President Jimmy Carter; baseball Hall of Famer Gary Carter; football Hall of Famer Cris Carter; boxer Rubin "Hurricane" Carter; and Gomer Pyle's tormentor, Sgt. Carter.
Birthdate: May 5, 2018. I'm coming 'round the bend of my first birthday. And the traditional dog gift for the first birthday is a new home.
Ethnicity: I'm a Labrador retriever mix fella. (Check out my beautiful auburn color with reddish highlights. Paul Mitchell ain't got nothing on my coloring.) I'm a looker, for sure.
I'm a total sweetheart, everybody loves me here at the shelter, including humans and dogs. I'm not too much of a cat person, though.
I know a few commands, like sit and other behaviors. My former owner brought me here because he lives in a small apartment and didn't have time to take care of me like I deserve.
I'm healthy and energetic, but very calm around small children. I'm pretty much perfect. C'mon, let's get this done!
Come and get me: I'm available for adoption at 11 am Friday, March 15 at Citizens for Animal Protection (17555 Katy Fwy.; 281-497-0591). Tell them, "Ken sent me."
