Meet Judy, your Awesome Adoptable Dog of the Week this week.

She's an energetic 4-year-old looking for a forever home.

Tyler at Lubbock Animal Services shared Judy's story with us:

From what we can tell she is a German Shephard/ Great Pyrenees mix. She is a lot of dog with a lot of heart. Judy is around 4 years old. She loves to be outdoors and play catch with balls or Frisbees. Once Judy has spent her energy she loves to be loved on. This large loving dog would be a great addition to an energetic family that would take her on walks and throw her a ball. Judy has been at the shelter for a little over a week.

As a bonus, all of our Awesome Adoptable Dogs of the Week are available for a free adoption. So why not stop into Lubbock Animal Services to meet Judy? She could be just the new best friend you've been wanting -- and needing -- in your life.

With more than 400 dogs that currently need homes at Lubbock Animal Services, we hope that sharing some of the special dogs here will help find them a perfect home. Lubbock Animal Services is located at 3323 Southeast Loop 289 in Lubbock. You can call them at 806-775-2057.
