Meet Checkers, a friendly fox and hound mix who is ready to be a part of your family.
He is great with children and other dogs, but shelter staff are uncertain about how he will react around cats.
This 3-year-old pup is a very happy dog and loves treats.
Brought in as a stray, staff at the Humane Society of Amherst County Adoption Center are working on getting this hound to a healthy weight.
