Pets of the Week - July 24, 2008

Dakota is a two and a half year old chocolate/tan Miniature Pinscher.  She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current.  This petite little lady is very friendly and affectionate.  She can be a little shy with new people, but tends to "warm up" quickly.   She lived with a small child in her previous home, and she appears to do well with calm, well-behaved children.  She does well and enjoys playing with other dogs of similar size and energy levels.  For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at 770/471-9436.  Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
