Mikey is this week's featured pet from the Heber Springs Humane Society

Love is one of the easiest and most satisfying emotions we can experience and that loving bond between a person and their pet is a wonderfully unique thing.  Pets show unconditional love in a way that is virtually impossible to get anywhere else.  In showing this love and loyalty, they put their ultimate trust people to take care of them and love them in return. Unfortunately, there are many pets that have been abandoned or abused or find themselves alone for a host of other reasons.  In a continuing effort to provide caring homes for deserving pets, the Heber Springs Humane Society and The Sun-Times have teamed up to showcase a featured pet. 

Mikey appears to be a Treeing Walker Coonhound, possibly purebred.  He is an unneutered male about two years old.  He is very shy of humans and will rarely approach someone at the fence, but he is not aggressive at all.  He loves other dogs, not surprising with a dog that would have been bred to be a pack hunter.  He also loves the outdoors and the opportunity to stretch out and run.  He is very alert, independent, and energetic.  If someone has the patience to work with him and develop trust, he will probably be an
excellent hunting dog.  Mikey needs a home of his own with a fenced enclosure and an owner with patience and love to regain his trust.
