Pet of the Week for March 13, 2012

Achilles the dog

ACHILLES is a 1-year-old spaniel mix male dog available for adoption through Animal Allies Humane Society. Achilles came from Bemidji with a large family. He had a rough start in life, but hopes to find his forever home soon. He's a little shy and slow to warm up, but all he needs is a little love.

An adoption fee is required for all adoptions. Animal Allies uses the "Meet your Match" adoption program designed by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The program evaluates an animal's behavior and interests and matches them to an adopter's preferences so you take home a pet you really click with. Call (218) 722-2110 or go here for more information.
