Granger is approximately five or six years old and came to the GSHS as a stray, according to GSHS spokesperson Jess.

“He loves meeting new people,” Jess said. “He is great with new dogs. He is going to be a wonderful addition to any family.”

Jess reminds pet owners to keep pets inside this New Year’s Eve, as fireworks can scare them.

“Dogs get spooked easily, even those that are super friendly in social settings. They can run off,” Jess said.

Open dog adoptions will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at the GSHS shelter on Joe White Avenue in Myrtle Beach.
