Jerky, July 5th Pet of the Week!

Jerky is just a little guy—a snack-size dog! He’s an 8-year-old terrier mix who gets along pretty well with the smaller dogs in his kennel. He does have a couple of issues—a skin condition and cherry eye, but a committed forever human won’t find that a challenge. Jerky won’t take up much space in your house, but we can’t guarantee your hear! Meet him on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A609742.
