Pets of the Week – January 15, 2018 (Russell and Amelia)


As soon as Russell gives you one of his trademark big grins and snuggly hugs, you’ll be sold. This 18-month-old black and white Labrador Retriever mix is as sweet as they come, and his personality definitely reflects the Lab side. He’s packed with energy and eager to please, and nothing makes him happier than getting a belly rub for good behavior.
