Pets of the Week - June 11, 2009

Guiness is a two year old longhaired Dachshund. He has been neutered and all vaccinations are current. Guiness is a very sweet little guy, but he has had not much attention or training in his short years. He is definitely going to need someone with a little "doggy know-how", and would probably prove to be too much for a first time pet owner. Guiness is truly a "diamond in the rough", but with time and patience, he will become a really good little pet. He has a great personality and he just needs a little training. For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at 770-471-9436. Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
