ADOPT A PET: Meet Dublin

DECATUR, Ga. - If you dream of coming home to a wet nose, wagging tail and tons of kisses (in addition to, perhaps, a half chewed shoe or overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local pet shelter. According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million domesticated animals enter animal shelters nationwide, every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. However, you can change those numbers but adopting a "companion" for yourself or your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.

Dublin is a Giant-sized Schnauzer who loves attention. He’s about five years old and he loves to run around and show off. PAWS Atlanta says that when he came to the shelter he was matted and very unkempt and they shaved him down. However, when his hair grows back he’ll look like a traditional Schnauzer and he’ll need to be groomed on a regular basis. The people at PAWS say he’s pretty smart and he’s clearly adorable. Check him out. He’s available at PAWS Atlanta for $175.00
