Pets of the Week

Rocky is a 2-year-old, Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix. He has been neutered and all vaccinations are current. Rocky was surrendered to the Humane Society when his family had to be relocated to Germany. He is a little sad and confused, but he is attempting to adjust to his new circumstances. He lived with children and did very well with them, but will need a home where all children are 8-years-old or older. He is a very sweet boy, but his new family should be prepared to show him some patience while he gets accustomed to new surroundings. Rocky is completely housebroken. For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at (770) 471-9436. Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
