PetOfWeekAugey is a 3-year-old neutered Akita mix. He weighs in at nearly 80 pounds – and is just as sweet as he can be. This big, loveable teddy bear has been here since early March, so his adoption fee has been waived. Come by and meet him in person and you’re sure to fall in love. Ask for Augey A768785.

Augey 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-Saturday 11 a.m.-6:30 p.m. and Sundays noon-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 animals are spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Dogs are tested for heartworms, and cats have been tested for FeLV. For more information, visit or call 214-671-0249.
