Happy Holidays! I am a 5 year old female black and tan shepherd/heeler mix. I am very gentle and love attention. I like to walk on a leash and I know to sit and shake on command. My head and cheeks are so soft, just made for petting. I have a bushy tail and two-toned nose. I am not a high energy dog and would be a loving addition to your family. I would really like to have a new home for Christmas so please come and see me. I am a real sweetie. My docket # is 11817, at the St. Joseph County Animal Control Shelter located at 652 E. Main St., Centreville, MI. Animal Control is open Monday – Friday, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. The first Saturday of each month AC is open for adoptions from 9:00 am – 12:00 noon. Their phone number is 269-467-6475. Please visit the Animal Rescue Fund website at www.arfund.org to see more adoptable pets. ARF will pay for the spay/neuter of an adopted Pet of the Week, at the Humane Society in Kalamazoo. If the owner wants to go to a local vet, the same amount will be given to that vet. Up-Cycled Pets needs reliable foster homes so some pets can learn more about living in a safe home before adoption. Go to www.upcycledpets.com for more information about how to help this group.
