Pet-of-the-WeekThis little guy doesn’t have a name yet, but he’d make someone a great pet and should be called Gentleman Joe. He’s a 2-year-old Chihuahua, is very laid back and friendly. He’s had a little hair loss but has been treated for it and will be back to his dapper looking self very soon. Please visit #A811320 at Dallas Animal Services Adoption Center, 1818 Westmoreland Road.

The Adoption Center is open 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 12 noon until 5 p.m. on Sunday. All adopted pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Standard adoption fees are $85 for dogs and $55 for cats.  They also offer discounts on adoption fees for pets over 6 years of age, to any senior citizen that adopts a pet, and to anyone adopting more than one pet at a time.  For more information, visit, or find us on Facebook at  Photo contributed by Judi Burnett.
