Our pet of the week is Dipper. Dipper is an American Staffordshire Terrier mixed with some Beagle and perhaps another breed. He's a medium sized dog. Very energetic and very very intelligent. He knows how to shake, shake with his other paw, sit, wait, watch me, he can ring a bell and he can do the shell game thing.

Dipper would do well with a family interested in continuing to work with him on his training and utilizing his intelligence. His energy and strength make him a better fit for families with older children. Pam from the Humane Society of Scott County recommends kids in the family be14 years an up.

If you're interested in adopting Dipper contact the Humane Society of Scott County. Dipper's adoption fee is $105 which includes all his shots and his personal surgery.

Dipper's spent half of his life with the Humane Society of Scott County and we'd like to find him a forever home. If you're looking for a loyal, energetic, smart dog and have time to give him you're family might be the perfect one for this sweet boy!
