DCL Pet of the Week: Meet Mater

DCL Pet of the Week: Meet Mater Wags to Riches Photography

This handsome dog is Mater, and he’s the Humane Society of West Alabama Pet of the Week!

Mater is a 2-3-year-old male German Shepherd/Heeler mix, and he has a thick black and brown coat. He weighs 38 pounds and is full grown. Mater is very sweet natured and enjoys being with his person. He can be very energetic and excited, but he also settles down nicely. He will need daily exercising and room to run, so a fenced in yard will be required.

Mater does well with other dogs and should be fine with children 10 and over. From the HSWA:

We don’t think he was socialized a lot, so new experiences like getting in the car has him nervous, so we are being patient to help him gain confidence with his new surroundings.

Mater has started his crate training, too. Mater is up to date on his vet care, neutered, heartworm negative, and microchipped.

All HSWA dogs are either at the HSWA Dog Adoption Facility or in foster homes. All dogs require an appointment to meet. Please call 205-554-0011 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to request an appointment to see Mater.

You can read more information on the HSWA’s adoption process at www.humanesocietyofwa.org/howtoadopt. Our adoption fee is $75.
