Pet Of The Week

A dog named Huckleberry visited WITN News at Sunrise as the Pet of the Week Wednesday.

Huckleberry is a handsome neutered male walker hound with personality. He and his brothers, Lester and Jethro, came to the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina together. Their mom was adopted from another agency, and when her new parents got her home she was pregnant. Fortunately, the owners took great care of the puppies until they were ready to come to the Humane Society.

Huckleberry is a hound through and through. He is happy-go-lucky, a slave to his nose, and has that pitiful hound dog look (you know the one that makes humans give him treats) down to a science.
Many people think that hounds are just for hunting, but that is far from the truth. Hounds are smart and resilient and make great family pets.

All dogs at the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, dewormed, and on heartworm and flea prevention. All dogs 6 months or older are tested for heartworms. Their adoption comes with a small bag of Hill's Science Diet food and a free one month trial of pet health insurance.

If you are interested in adopting Huckleberry or any of the animals at the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina, please contact them at (252) 413-7247 or visit them online at

    Huckleberry is the perfect name for this sweetie. If I didn't already have 3 pets I would bring him home today.

      I was thinking the very same thing about that name. Love it. Looks like he's got some Beagle in there. They make great pets. I hope they find him a home.
