Sox: The Paws Report, Feb. 3

Sox

On The Paws Report today at 3:30:

Sox is a 10-year-old Labrador Retriever/Hound mix who was surrendered to the Kentucky Humane Society when her owners moved and could not take her with them. She had spent her whole life with one owner in a home, and Sox finds being at the shelter to be quite stressful. Sox loves it when she receives visitors in her room at the Kentucky Humane Society’s East Campus. The staff say Sox is a very sweet-natured girl who just wants a chance to have a family of her own again. Sox has lived with other dogs and did well with them, so if you are interested in adoption and have another dog at home, she would love to meet them. Sox is house-trained and walks wonderfully on a leash. She is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Meet this senior sweetheart at the KHS East Campus, 1000 Lyndon Lane in Louisville. View all all adoptable pets online at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Sox is part of our “lonely hearts” adoption special in February.

Brooke Annibale is from Pittsburgh but records in Nashville. Her new album The Simple Fear is obviously worth the commute! She recently played our Winter Wednesday concert series and came by the studio beforehand.
