Tonks needs a home

Tonks is a large-sized 1 1/2-year-old neutered white and brown hound mix.

"Hi, I'm Tonks! I am a big boy but don't let my size fool you; I am just a big baby! I love to play and be by your side!

"I do well with my housebreaking but may need an adjustment period when I go home while I learn the rules of my new house. The staff recommends crate training to help learn our new routine.

"I get along well with other dogs and didn't mind cats during my assessment. I would do well in a home with older children as long as they treat me nicely."

He is available for adoption at the Allen County SPCA, 4914 Hanna St.

The shelter is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
