HAGERSTOWN -- To say that Hooper was doggone cute was an understatement. And he seemed to know it, showing off for anyone who passed his way.
He was looking for a playmate. He was looking for attention.
But, mostly, Hooper was looking for a home.
Part shih tzu, part schnauzer, the black-and-white year-old dog was among the animals that attended a pet adoption party on Saturday at Central Dawgma on Pennsylvania Avenue.
The animals were provided by the Humane Society of Washington County.
The purpose of the event was twofold, said Julie Draper, the society's adoption promotion coordinator.
"We're hoping the animals we have here today will find forever homes," she said. "At the same time, we want people to be aware of who we are and to consider us when it comes time to adopt a pet."
Anshul Gupta, owner of Central Dawgma, said he was more than happy to host the party.
