LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - KTRE is taking a part in saving the lives of pets across East Texas.
We met Hiccup, a five-month-old puppy, on Thursday.
He doesn't bark like the other dogs. However, he will warm up to people as he connects with them.
"He's a little shy, of course, this environment is tough being at the shelter with all the other noise and all the other animals, but he warms up very quickly," said Aaron Ramsey, the City of Lufkin's director of animal services of Lufkin. "He's very good-natured. He just need somebody to spend a lot of time with him."
Hiccup came to the animal shelter in October when he was a young puppy. He was scheduled to be adopted, but things changed.
"He was adopted for the recent special that we had here Home for the Holidays Adoption Special, but the owner never came back and picked Hiccup up. So he kind of got the raw deal," Ramsey said.
As Hiccup continues to grow, he will get larger than his current size because he's still a puppy. However, training him will be easy for any activity.
Hiccup will do well in a home that has a big area to run and play to release energy.
