Pets of the Week - July 30, 2009

Petunia is a 10 month old Dachshund mix. She has been spayed and fully vaccinated.. This precious little angel is super sweet and affectionate, and just full of puppy energy. She plays well with other dogs of similar size. She is intrigued by cats, and she wants to play with them, but she will chase a cat if given the opportunity. She is very smart and learns quickly. However, she is a puppy and will need someone with plenty of patience to teach her proper doggie manners and to housebreak her. For adoption information, please call Robin at 770/478-7531. Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
