Meet Nado, a 3-year-old, male hound mix. He has a smooth, tan- colored coat with a hint of cream near his mouth. His big, brown eyes plead for love and are sure to steal your heart. Nado came to the SPCA of Texas as a rescue from a cruelty case, and he has overcome many of his fears resulting from his past treatment. He is sweet and timid and loves a good belly rub. He is looking for a calm, quiet environment and a fenced yard. New situations and busy places can be a little much for him, so having his own place away from others is best. Having another friendly dog in the home who can show Nado the ropes would be great, but kids under age 12 could make him nervous. He recently completed heart worm treatment and requires exercise restriction until July 21. He will need to take it easy, and his home shouldn’t have too many stairs; he probably would enjoy the couch potato life. If you’re looking for a quiet gentleman to share your couch with, he’s the one for you. Nado is waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. Please visit to make an appointment to meet him.

In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the SPCA of Texas’ shelters, clinics, mobile adoption and mobile wellness events remain closed to the public until further notice. Adoptions are available by appointment only every Thursday and Saturday. Adoption counseling will be done virtually, and curb-side pickups will be offered whenever possible so that in-person meet and greets can be kept to a minimum. Adopters will need to submit an adoption inquiry form in order to begin the tele-adoption process and schedule an appointment to complete the adoption.
