The pets pictured in today’s Richmond News are Petunia, a pug mix who’s an older dog and calmer than a younger one. She was born in 2006 and dolled up for Mushroom Festival with a shaved heart on her hip. She’s very sweet; Squirt is a full-grown male who is 2 years old. He has a very nice personality and shares a room at the shelter and Cher, pictured below; Cher is a 2-year-old female who is very friendly and playful and gets along well with Squirt, her shelter companion.
