Pet of the Week
photo: towncrier

Mix the warm brown of chocolate lab with the distinctness of blue heeler and the result is Schatzi, a well-mannered, 6-month-old girl who already knows a spectrum of commands, such as "not," "sit," "stay" and "shake." Schatzi (German for sweetie) was given as a gift, but as if often the case when giving pets, it didn't work out because she was given to a person who works long hours and could not provide Schatzi with the care she deserves. Isn't there someone out there who can color Schatzi's world with love?
