JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

"Addison" is the name given by Northeast Arkansas Humane Society volunteers to a very shy Dapple Dachshund that was found standing outside the humane society kennels located at 6111 East Highland Drive.

"When we arrived at work on Monday, we had a sweet little Dapple Dachshund waiting for us in one of our outdoor kennels," Kelly Ford, office manager for NEA Humane Society said. "We've named him Addison.  At first, he was very scared of us. But after a couple of hours, he was good to go!"

Addison is now up-to-date on all vaccines and will be neutered before leaving NEAHS.

"We do not know if he was owner surrendered or if someone found him wandering around and thought he'd be safer in our kennels," Ford said. "But we're glad to have Addison.  He has made himself at home already.  But he is wanting to have a "furever" home!" 

To find out more about Addison, contact NEAHS: 870-932-5185.
