When it comes to expanding your family and bringing home a new furry friend, there is no better time to start than now. If you are thinking about getting a dog but aren’t sure where to start, one of these sweet pups might be the one for you.

The Lubbock Animal Shelter (LAS) has hundreds of animals in need of good homes, but a select few really need it the most. At no fault of their own, some dogs get stuck at the shelter long-term and tend to go unnoticed by many adopters. Whether they are just a couple years old or a senior dog, they all deserve good homes and would make amazing companions.

LAS has a special section of their kennels dedicated to dogs that have been there for six months or longer. These are all amazing dogs that are simply not given a chance to prove how amazing they can be. Knowing how hard it is to get these long stay dogs out of the shelter, LAS has put together a special promo to encourage adoptions.

They got a few free mugs courtesy of Petsy Studio that features five of their long stay dogs. If you decide to adopt one of these pups, you will get the mug for free as well as a professional, framed, photo of them. The dogs featured are Skip (shown above), Ralph, Sally, Mudpie, and Noah (also shown above).

If you are looking to change a dog’s life as well as your own, consider adopting one of these amazing pups. You can meet the dogs and find out more information by visiting LAS.
