The Gulf Coast Humane Society has around 100 dogs in its shelter, all in need of loving homes. Every Friday, WINK News will introduce you to new dogs that could be the perfect additions to your family.

This week’s dogs:

Bentley, a 4 ½-year-old hound mix, just under 90 lbs. This big boy loves walks, people and treats. He already knows tricks, like “shaking hands.”

Bentley is deaf but very well-trained. He is also a graduate of the Lee County Cell Dog program. GCHS Executive Director Gary Willoughby says Bentley would do excellently in a home with older children and adults.

Max Mitchell, a 6-year-old, 50-lb cur mix. He loves belly rubs and has a sweet disposition. GCHS volunteers call him “the Wiggle-Butt” because of his happy, constantly wagging tail. Max is a very active dog and loves to play! He has been at GCHS for six months.

Koda, an 8-year-old pit bull mix. He is a calm, affectionate dog that goes with volunteers to local senior centers and spends time doing pet therapy. Koda enjoys playing in short bursts, but then he likes to nap.

You can’t buy happiness, but you sure can rescue it.
