This week's adorable canine looks for all the world like a Chinese skunk. Named Spice, this gorgeous Pekingnese, is a purebred guy who is set to charm and brings with him all the nobility found in this ancient breed. At 2-plus years, he's a good choice for seniors or families with older children, and he appears to get along well with other dogs. He's up-to-date on shots and worming. 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.
