Connor: The Paws Report, Oct. 21


Today on our Membership Drive edition for The Paws Report at 3:30:

Two-month-old Connor is a gorgeous, Bluetick Coonhound mix with floppy ears and endless energy. Connor, along with his siblings, made their way to the Kentucky Humane Society from an overcrowded shelter to find their forever home. While all of Connor’s siblings have already found their homes, goofy Connor is still searching for his. With piercing blue eyes and breathtaking white markings, Connor really is quite the handsome pup. This fearless boy can’t wait to find a family who can show him all the things a puppy needs to know to become a well behaved, social adult. In exchange, he promises to provide a lifetime of love and companionship! Come meet Connor today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. View all our adoptable pets online at or call 502-366-3355 for more information.
