Abe is a 2-year-old brindle Chihuahua. He’s a tiny little thing, weighing just 6 pounds. Abe is friendly, great with other small dogs and very loving. He’s attentive and always eager to please. He’s a real sweetheart!
October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. Abe and many other dogs and puppies, as well as 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-Saturday 11 a.m.-6:30 p.m. and Sundays noon-5 p.m. The cost to adopt is $85 for dogs and $55 for cats and includes spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and more. Adoption discounts are offered 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.
