Pets of the Week - Dec. 20, 2007

If you are thinking about adopting a puppy, the holidays may be a great time to welcome a new pet into your home, especially if you will have time during the holidays to work on training. Fonzie is a shepherd mix puppy who is available at the local animal shelter. He is young and playful. He weighs about 15 pounds now, but may have some growing left to do.

To find out more about Fonzie, ask about 121507/9586 (P8) at the Henry County Animal Control Shelter at 527 Hampton Street (Ga. Highway 20/81), McDonough. The shelter is open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Call (770) 288-7387 (PETS).

Tail of Success: Penelope, the young Cairn terrier mix was adopted this weekend. She joined a new mom and a new older brother who resembles her dramatically, only in a smaller, older package. She is doing great in her new home.
