This tiny little girl is only 8 weeks old and believed to be a Heeler-mix. Her temporary name is Bandit. She has an eye-catching merle coat and promises to love, honor and obey a new owner. She's had her first shots and been wormed and with a little love and good nutrition should weigh approximately 35 pounds as an adult. She 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 photos by Sue Ann Kuhn-Smith
