My Story

Hi Everyone.  My name is Abner, and I am the humane education dog for the Humane Society of Pulaski County, a no-kill shelter in Little Rock, Arkansas.  I have visited with nearly 3,000 children in the central Arkansas area, teaching compassion for all living things.  I talk about what we do at our shelter and why we have so many unwanted animals.  Most of the children have pets of their own so I remind them how important it is to take good care of them.   One of the fun things I do is to ask the children what type of dog I am.   So far, I am a collie, basset, beagle, daschund, Australian shepherd, and corgi.  I am very unique.  I have short stumpy legs and a long body so lots of kids can pet me all at once!  I will add some more photos of where I’ve been later.  I am going to Fulbright Elementary on Tuesday and I’m looking forward to that.  Talk to you later!

    Arf Arf Abner. You look like a Doxie Basset mix to me. It sounds like you are having a very productive and enjoyable life. Keep up the wonderful work you are doing. I really like your blog. I am looking forward to following your updates.
