Mr. Sweets

Meet Mr. Sweets, a 2-year-old Coonhound/Shar-Pei who needs a new home. He’s a big dog, but he’s very calm and well-behaved.In fact, a scuffle broke out this morning at the Fayetteville Animal Shelter, but instead of jumping in, Mr. Sweets just sat there and watched.

It’s rare to take photos of a large dog and not have them jump up on you, but Mr. Sweets was very polite today. He’s such a sweet guy that you’d better act quick if you’re interested in this pup.


Sassafrassa is a super sweet, 2-year-old Domestic Short Hair kitty who’d make a great new friend. She’s a little shy and very quiet, so if you’re looking for a chilled out pet to add some love to your house, consider stopping by the shelter and saying hello to Sassafrassa.

If you are interested in meeting either of this week’s featured pets or any of the other wonderful animals at the Fayetteville Animal Shelter, call 444-3456 or stop by the shelter during adoption hours at 1640 S. Armstrong Avenue.
