Photo detail

This noble little tri-color terrier-mix couldn't be any cuter if he tried. He's been named Gruff, but here's betting he just pretends to be be be "gruff" and is a real sweetheart. He's approximately 10 months old and will weigh between 15 and 20 pounds when fully grown. He'd be a great addition to any family. He can be rescued and adopted at Newton County Animal Shelter, located at 210 Lower River Road in Covington. The shelter usually has between 20 to 30 dogs and an equal number of cats eligible for adoption. The adoption fee for a dog or puppy is $25 and $10 for a cat or kitten. Spaying/neutering is mandatory for all animals. The shelter is open from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. The phone number is 770-786-9514. Anyone who has lost a pet is urged to go to the center and bring a photo of the missing animal. - Staff photo by Sue Ann Kuhn-Smith
