CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman County Animal Shelter’s Donna Ruttkay shares The Cullman Tribune Pet of the Week:

Mable is a 1-year-old Beagle/Dachshund mix (Ruttkay called it “a perfect combination!”). She’s a lively-but-not-hyper, medium-energy pet who’s skilled on her leash and cherishes human companionship. 

On these hot summer days, she enjoys playing in the kiddie pool’s cool water.

Mable cannot see from her right eye, but her other eye is fine, and she is not limited.

Ruttkay said Mable is “struggling with life here at the shelter, but demonstrates a passion for life all the same.” 

She has the makings of a good therapy, companion or hiking dog.

Mable’s adoption fee is $100 which includes: DHLPP vaccine, Bordetella vaccines, rabies vaccine, wormer, general exam at the vet, spaying, microchip, free 30-day health insurance policy issued by 24PetWatch (with valid email only) and a free bag of food from Cullman Pet Depot (you must pay sales tax).

Animal shelter staff and volunteers work with their dogs to make sure they are accustomed to being around people, walking on a leash and practicing good behavior. Several of the shelter’s canine friends have even been “hired” to work as therapy and special needs service dogs.  

Please consider adopting, to give a rescued pet a chance at a happy and healthy life.

Contact the Cullman County Animal Shelter at 256-734-5448 or Visit the shelter at 935 Convent Road NE.
