First let me say: Please consider adopting from the shelter before you "purchase" an animal from a pet store, breeder or even a rescue. I will explain more about this in a bit.
A stroll through our local animal shelter in Texarkana yesterday (Animal Care and Adoption Center) was not a sad trip but rather a happy one because of all the smiling faces looking at me as I moved past each dog's kennel. There were so many that volunteered but I was only there to take a photo of one dog. The dog that would be featured in the newspaper, TV and radio for the week. Such a tough decision but there was one particular dog that I had promised to give the day too. Her name is Red.
Miss Red is a Chow mix, approximately 4 years old and weighs about 35 pounds. She is very sweet and would make a great family pet--good with kids. She appears to have had some house-training too because she waited until we were outside to take care of business. She comes with a FREE wellness exam from Pleasant Grove Animal Hospital.
