Sweet and Beefy Indiana Dog Can Be Part of Your Family [VIDEO]

Allow us to introduce you to this week’s Pet of the Week from the Vanderburgh Humane Society.

Meet Chompers!

Chomper here! I’m a 3-year-old terrier mix and long-time resident of VHS. If you couldn’t already tell, I’m a very sweet and beefy boy. Sometimes I underestimate my own beefiness, so look out toddlers—I will bulldoze over you. I generally love everyone I meet and play well with other dogs. I’m very treat-motivated and LOVE belly rubs and car rides. I’m heartworm positive, but the VHS will treat me (at no extra cost to you) once I’m adopted and can recover in a home. Come out and meet me, I promise you’ll immediately fall in love with my goofy side! My adoption fee is $25 thanks to the Bissel Foundation and includes my neuter, microchip, and heartworm treatment.
