‘Babe’ is Anything But Blue. This Big Dog is Beautiful and Ready to Adopt
Billings' featured Wet Nose Wednesday dog this week is named Babe, just like the Big, Blue Ox or the famous baseball player. And much like the legendary oversized cow, our dog this week is a big boy. He's also a total sweetheart.
From the Electric City to Billings.
Babe came to Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter from a shelter in Great Falls about a week ago. YVAS works with various shelters around the state and nation to help dogs find loving homes. For example; some cities have higher populations of retired folks who might prefer adopting smaller dogs. Other towns have younger demographics that are more likely to adopt an active dog like Babe.
The shelter thinks Babe will find his forever home in the Magic City, and we agree. This dog would love spending time running around with you in Yellowstone County.
A new best friend for all of your adventures.
Babe bounded through our studio doors this morning when he arrived with Derek Wulf, Humane Outreach Coordinator at Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter. Babe is a very curious, active dog. A Malamute mix, he will probably do best with a human who can keep him busy with lots of exercise and playtime.
Can't adopt another pet? Consider being a foster parent.
YVAS is always looking for qualified individuals to act as foster parents for dogs or cats. They wrote,
The animals that are sent out to foster are all compromised in some way and are not yet considered “adoptable” whether they are underage or underweight, nursing, are semi-feral and need individualized socialization, or are recovering from an illness or medical procedure.
The average length of time a pet is in foster care is usually 2 - 6 weeks, but that can vary depending on the animal's needs. You can learn more about their foster program HERE. Browse all the animals currently up for adoption at the shelter HERE.
