DECATUR, Ga. - If you dream of coming home to a wet nose, wagging tail and tons of kisses (in addition to, perhaps, a half chewed shoe or overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local pet shelter. According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million domesticated animals enter animal shelters nationwide, every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. However, you can change those numbers but adopting a "companion" for yourself or your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.
Kovu is a four-month-old Dachshund and Miniature Smooth Haired/Chihuahua short coat mix who is “still super young and needs an active family who will take her out exploring and engage in play with her”. According to PAWS Atlanta, she would love to go on walks, learn to fetch, and practice her training skills with you. Kovu is very smart.
