Dog of the Week: Belinda

My name is Belinda! I am a young terrier mix found as a stray and brought to ACCT. I am super sweet, super fun, happy as they come and looking for a place to call home! I love to swim, play in the baby pool, play tag, chase a ball — I’m pretty easy going I just want to have fun!

I LOVE people. I LOVE playing with people! I LOVE to play! I LOVE other dogs – but remember I also LOVE to play, so I need a dog that likes to play too.

I don’t show much interest in cats but if you have cats let the people know, and they can test me again. I am still a puppy and have lots of puppy energy to burn, so I would love an active home where I get regular walks. I would be a great hiking partner ’cause I love to walk, run, climb – whatever you want to do, I’ll be right by your side.

What are you waiting for? More info? OK– included in my adoption fee (which is very reasonable) are: all of my necessary shots, getting spayed and a microchip, so if we ever get separated you can find me. ACCT has great volunteers and adoption staff – they ask that you bring any dogs or young kids to meet me just to make sure we ALL love each other!
