Meet Tops at the shelter if you have a chance. Such a happy guy! He is about a year old pointer mix and is fully vetted and microchipped. Tops is wonderful with kids and other dogs; however, he does not like chickens. Tops would be a great companion for you or a family and is so ready to find his home. Currently, we are limited to adoptions at the shelter by appointment since off-sites have been cancelled until further notice. For questions about Tops or any other available pet, call Barbi at 903-348-1868 or Annie at 903-348-3122 or set up a time to meet the shelter’s great pets. Courtesy/Sulphur Springs Animal Shelter
