Pet of the Week


Dizzy is a 2-3 year old Chihuahua-Yorkie mix that weighs 6lbs and is as sweet as pie. He loves everyone and gets along fabulously with other dogs. Dizzy has a habit of chasing his tail when he is kenneled hence his name. He only does this when he’s crated. He occasionally hangs out in the front office and greets our residents as they come in and he’s never met a stranger. Prior to coming to the shelter Dizzy lived his life on a chain in someone’s back yard so he did test positive for heartworm. He’s young and doesn’t have any symptoms. Dizzy is neutered and current on vaccinations. His adoption fee is $100.00.
