Locks is a male hound mix approximately nine months to one year of age. He is seeking a family or person who enjoys hugging, napping on the couch and watching him be silly. 

Locks ended up in an overcrowded kill shelter in rural North Carolina, but we don’t have much more information on him.  He is 40 pounds with a cropped tail, which he still tries to wag when he greets you. 

He would do well in a home with other pets.  Locks is still in his puppy years, so he still tends to jump up to give you a big hug. Locks is energetic and playful, but he also does not mind being lazy and just lying around the house.  Locks has been neutered. 

Please feel free to contact his previous foster home in North Carolina, Chris Rogers at 973 975 8383 or for more details.

If you'd like to meet him, please complete an application at & be sure to mention his name - LOCKS!  He will be in NJ and ready for adoption or a foster home on Monday, August 14th.
