Emily Witt from the Franklin County Humane Society Planned Pethood Clinic and Adoption Center stopped by “Good Day Virginia” on Tuesday, January 24th, with the chillest pup around — Chilly!

Chilly is a Shar-Pei mix, around 7 years old and 38 lbs. He arrived at the shelter on Christmas Eve after being found as a stray. As an older fellow, he’s not really playful. Chilly is very tolerant of other dogs and takes corrections well. Witt says he has a wonderful personality but does bark when left alone. Chilly wants a warm loving home to call his own and is great with kids.

Witt says Chilly does have a heart murmur and takes medicine for it. 

Franklin County Humane Society Planned Pethood Clinic and Adoption Center is also searching for fosters puppies. Witts says they have a lot of puppies right now and the shelter is full.

Anyone interested in adopting Chilly or fostering a puppy should fill out an application on the shelter’s website.

The Franklin County Humane Society Planned Pethood Clinic and Adoption Center is currently open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, with the dog area closing at 2 p.m. However, if your adoption application is approved, other times can be arranged.
