Each week 95.3 The Bear teams up with the Alabama Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ALSPCA) to try and find homes for dogs & cats in our area.

This week we're featuring a retriever mix named Simon! This boy is about 10 months old now and the most gentle and tender hearted pup at the shelter. Simon was shy at first pancake crawling out of his kennel but who can blame him? As soon as he got to the yard he came to life, he was so happy to be out of the shelter and in the sun.

Members of the ALSPCA also think Simon may also be a black mouth cur, which is a beautiful breed of dog. This pup would be great with kids and likes other dogs.
