Although I was sick and not able to do my weekly "Pet of the Week" segment, I was still able to get all the information on Rosie, a brindle 5-year-old Staffordshire-Terrier Mix. Rosie is friendly and loves to be around people, including kids. So she's ready for a welcoming family who will take her in and give her lots of love! But just because she's good with people doesn't mean she's good with other pets. I was told that Rosie can be stand-offish when it comes to other dogs and would be best in a home as the only pet.

The Humane Society of West Michigan also has two specials going on at the moment:

Name Your Own Cat Special for cats 5 months and up through the end of September. Also all dogs 1 year and up are only $75.
