After 848 days at shelter, Fry has left the building! | Forgotten Friends

Fry had been at the Bulverde Area Humane Society since November of 2021.

BULVERDE, Texas — UPDATE 3/10/24

After 848 days at the shelter just waiting for someone to love him, Fry has left the building!

“Fry’s new family is absolutely perfect for him,” said Penny at BAHS. “They have had their eyes on him for a while, but have been working on training their current dog before welcoming another one into their home. The two dogs get along great now and we are thrilled that Fry with have a four legged companion with him in his new home.”

Shelter staff said it will certainly be hard walking past his kennel and not seeing his front paws and cute face peeking up, but they couldn’t be more thrilled that Fry finally has his own home. 

“MANY staff and volunteers have bonded with Fry, so days like today are very bittersweet at the shelter,” said Penny. “While we will miss him like crazy, we are THRILLED that he finally found the perfect home! Go live your best life Fry! We love you.”

UPDATE 2/7/24

We first told you about Fry in April of 2023. He’s a gorgeous dog with a brindle coat who has now waited at the Bulverde Area Humane Society for over 800 days for someone to notice him.

“Sad, confused, and lonely, Fry was forced to adjust to shelter life after being surrendered over 800 days ago,” said BAHS. “For over two years now, he has watched people walk past his kennel and choose other dogs over him.”

Fry is a Mountain Cur mix, weighs 68 pounds, and is six and a half years old. He is neutered, microchipped, current on his vaccinations, and flea/tick/heartworm preventative. 

He is a favorite of both staff and volunteers. He loves water, and in fact jumps into pools as soon as they are filled.

“Fry has a special place in his heart for the people that he knows and he gets so excited to come out and play,” says BAHS. “We just wish someone would see what he has to offer and give him a chance at a new life. Our hearts break a little bit more for him when we see other dogs chosen over him. Fry has so much love to give and we won’t give up hope in finding the perfect family for him.”

Fry needs some consistent training, including practice on proper introductions and how to interact with new people in his home. He doesn’t react to cats and does terrific with other dogs.

Fry must be an indoor dog, including having a place to sleep inside overnight. If you have other dogs, they must be spayed or neutered and current on their vaccinations.

Who is ready to step up and finally give this guy a loving home?

For whoever adopts Fry, Lucy’s Doggy Daycare & Spa will be lending a paw by offering them a free “Glow Up” Day at the Spa, which includes a massage therapy bath and Pawdicure. One of Lucy’s most cherished core values is to continue Lucy’s legacy of giving back to pups in need, as Lucy herself was a rescue!

The shelter is located at 3563 Kingsnake in Bulverde and they are open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Our “Forgotten Friends” series showcases a dog or cat each week that has spent a lengthy time at an area shelter, just waiting for someone to notice them and bring them home to love. 

Fry is a gorgeous dog with a lovely brindle coat, golden eyes and a big, goofy smile. He has been waiting for someone to notice him at the Bulverde Area Humane Society for over two years now.

Fry is a Mountain Cur mix with a brindle coat, born on August 9, 2017, and he weighs about 71 pounds.

In case you didn’t know, brindle is a distinctive coat pattern in dogs described as tiger-striped, but the variations of color are more subtle and blended than distinct stripes.  

“Sad, confused, and lonely, he was forced to adjust to shelter life,” said BAHS. “He gets more and more lonely with each passing day. We don’t understand how there has been so little interest in him. For two years now, he has watched people walk past his kennel and choose other dogs over him.”

Since Fry is a big and strong boy who has been in the shelter for so long, he will need an experienced handler to teach him basic manners. Fry will benefit from consistent training, including practice on proper introductions and how to interact with new people in his home. 

“When Fry spent some time in a volunteer’s house, he was loving but not demanding, attentive but not needy,” said BAHS. “He was gentle and kind to their smaller, female dog. Fry had excellent manners; he didn’t dig or chew. He didn’t even come up on the furniture unless invited. “

According to the American Kennel Club, “Mountain Cur dogs are hunters and respond best to training with a lot of human contact. They also make great companions and watch dogs.”

Fry likes to go for walks and give warm hugs, but only when invited. And he will sit pretty for treats all day.

“Recently, Fry was invited to a slumber party at a volunteer’s house,” said Cindi, a volunteer for BAHS. “He brought cuddles, kisses, and remembered furniture is by invitation only. He loved spending time with the kids and was very courteous and gentle with their dog.”

Fry is pretty easy going with most other dogs, but we don’t know about kitties. He has a blast at the shelter running and playing with his best friend whose name is Dakota.

If there are other dogs in your home, they do require a meet and greet, which can be scheduled by email at bahshelter@yahoo.com. Your other pets must also have proof of vaccinations and be spayed or neutered.

He gets along well with most people, but sometimes is intimidated by men. This handsome boy is loyal and devoted to his people.

Like with all animals from BAHS, you must agree to keep Fry as an indoor dog.

Fry is neutered, microchipped, current on all of his vaccinations, and currently takes flea and tick, as well as a heartworm preventative. This boy has already been through a lot in his life and is very deserving of a forever home. 

If you are interested in adding Fry into your family, please email bahshelter@yahoo.com
