Rex the puppy is hoping to find a home that needs help finishing the turkey leftovers.
Rex is an 8-month-old German shepherd who is currently available for adoption at Midlands Humane Society. Shelter staff members say Rex is a “goofy” boy who is very energetic and willing to learn some behavioral training.
He is a tall pup who could stand to put on a little weight. Due to his size and energy, households with older children are recommended as he learns to relax.
His adoption fee is $225, which includes altering, a microchip and age-appropriate vaccines.
