Every Wednesday we feature a different pet that needs a new forever home here in the Basin from Lonestar Sanctuary For Animals. Sometimes it's a dog, sometimes it's a cat. They haven't had any guinea pigs, hamsters, birds, or snakes---yet. But you never know!

Meet Nexus!


He is an adorable 8-month-old Havanese mix puppy!  Like all of the available dogs at the Lonestar Sanctuary For Animals, Nexus has been neutered and is up to date with his vaccines.  Nexus is very playful with other dogs and toys but he loves to cuddle on a lap as well.  He enjoys looking out the window during car rides.  Nexus doesn't have any restrictions to adopt.  He is great with children and should be okay with cats.  He is a dog that would require regular grooming and he does shed.  He would be great for a family or really anyone who wants extra cuddles and love in their life. The perfect adopter for Nexus would be someone who sees him as family and is committed to giving him love and care for the rest of his life. Visit Him Today at 4200 Fairgrounds Road in Midland any day EXCEPT Thursdays 1 pm-4:30 pm.
