Pet of the week • 01.27.12




Stewie is a sweet brindle terrier mix who, despite the name, is a girl dog. She’s 11⁄2 years old and full grown at 42 pounds. Stewie is gentle, affectionate and eager to please. And because she’s been at Dallas Animal Services for more than 45 days, her adoption cost is just $42.50.

Stewie and many other dogs, puppies, cats and kittens are available for adoption from Dallas Animal Services, 1818 N. Westmoreland at I-30, just minutes west of downtown Dallas. The shelter is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. The regular adoption cost is $85 for dogs and $55 for cats, but discounts are offered for older animals and those in the shelter longer than 45 days, and to senior citizens and those who adopt two animals at the same time. All dogs are negative for heartworms, and cats have been tested for FeLV and FIV.  For more information, visit, or call 214-671-0249.
