Linus: The perfect security blanket 

Interested adopters can view available pets, like Linus, and schedule an appointment online at azhumane.org/adopt.

Named after a character from the beloved cartoon series Peanuts, Linus is sure to be the cutest furry version of a security blanket with his loving and relaxed demeanor. The 10-year-old Boxer mix found his way to the Arizona Humane Society in February after his owner, unfortunately, passed away and he had nowhere else to go. A stark reminder to always have a plan in place for your furry family members should an emergency or something unexpected occur.
