KPRC 2 Pet Project: Meet Ariel, a pup who wants to be part of your world

Volunteers at the Houston Humane Society say 5-year-old Ariel, not to be confused by the Disney princess, is SUMMERTIME FINE!

With a 10 out of 10 smile, Ariel is for sure ready to win the hearts of her new family. Volunteers say she’s more suited for an empty-nested family or those with older kids.

Some of the things Ariel loves to do is chilling on someone’s lap, running around the yard, and of course, squeaky toys! If Ariel was a human, she would be a bodybuilder based on her muscular figure!

Meet Ariel at the Houston Humane Society, located at 14700 Almeda Rd. in southwest Houston, open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. If you’re interested in welcoming Ariel into your home, you can jump-start the adoption process by filling out this form.
