Every week 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 Nash!

This handsome 2.5-year-old Shepherd mix was brought to the Sanctuary as a stray after a good Samaritan got him neutered and up to date on vaccines!  Nash loves to play with other dogs and does a great job matching the other dog's energy.  He loves to go on walks and would be a wonderful dog for someone who is active and loves to be outdoors.  He has high exercise requirements and would need his adopter to not only have a fenced-in yard but be committed to taking him on daily long walks.  Nash does not like to be alone for long periods of time and has been known to dig out of a fence when bored or anxious.  Here at the Sanctuary, we have found that he does much better when he has a yard mate and would recommend that his adopter either have another dog to be his companion, or adopt him with one of his buddies here at the sanctuary.  If you are interested in meeting this amazing dog, come to the Sanctuary during visiting hours of 1-4:30 pm every day except Thursdays.

Once home, remember the rule of three: three days to decompress, three weeks to get used to your routine and home, and three months to feel completely at home.

Lonestar Sanctuary For Animals is located at 4200 Fairgrounds Road in Midland. Visiting hours are 1 pm until 4:30 pm, every day except Thursday.
