Shy Shelter Dog Needs Someone Special To Save Him [WATCH]

Allow us to introduce you to this week pet of the week of the Vanderburgh Humane Society.

Discover Guppy!

Hi, I’m a Guppy – one year old terrier mix available for adoption at VHS! At 176 days, I am currently one of our longest canine residents here. I know what you’re thinking, “Guppy, what’s the heist?” You’re so cute and charming!” Well, here’s the scoop: I’m nervous around strangers and I need someone patient and knowledgeable about dogs. Also, I’m not a fan of cats and I don’t know how to behave around children. If those things aren’t a dealbreaker then I’m the perfect puppy for you! I’m sweet when I take treats, I love to go for car rides and I’m a love the people I’ve come to know! My adoption fee is $150 and includes my sterilization, microchip, vaccinations AND heartworm treatment.
