Howdy, his name is Chigger, and he’s a handsome, red, Hound mix who is almost two years old. Chigger is extremely sweet, and he loves to be around people. He will patiently wait for you to come by and give him attention, and he is always ready to greet you with a smile, a paw and a tail wag. He’s a playful and athletic guy who is used to living with a family, so he will be a great companion for most anyone looking for a cuddle bug. He was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on April 20, and he has been waiting for his new family for nearly two months. This fun-loving, young pup will benefit from positive crate training as he tends to get bored when he is left alone for long periods of time, and he may think up some of his own games. This gentle boy is great with kids and other dogs, but he would prefer a home without cats. Come meet Chigger today, and see why all the staff and volunteers at the SPCA of Texas are just itching to take him home! Chigger is also a V.I.P. (Very Important Pet) because he’s been waiting for his new, loving family for more than 30 days, and he has a special adoption price of $50! #12393121
