Holiday pet bags help feed local homeless animals
Our pet pick of the week is Shadow, a 3-year-old Mastiff/Pitbull mix. Shadow is just a big, overgrown goofy dog. A lovable lug of sorts. He is a good-natured, easygoing dog who is surprisingly gentle for his very large size. Shadow gets along with kids and other dogs, though he is not trustworthy around cats. If you like tall, dark and handsome, then Shadow may be just the dog for you.
