Circus gets his name because he loves to "sit pretty." He is about 3 years old and is listed as a dachshund, possibly mixed with Jack Russell terrier. Circus has a loving disposition and seems to get along well with dogs. However, he is not fond of cats. Inquiries about adopting Circus or other dogs and cats can be made at the Humane Society of the Nature Coast shelter at Wiscon and Mobley roads in Brooksville. Visiting hours at the shelter are from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. The shelter is run strictly on donations; no government subsidies are provided. Adoption fees are $100 for dogs, $40 for adults cats and $65 for kittens. Fees cover the costs for all vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchipping. For more information, call (352) 796-2711 or visit the website at humanerescue .org.
