HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Pet of the Week at the Southern Pines Animal is Mrs White. She's a 3 and a half month old mix breed terrier.

Mrs White was adopted from the shelter about a week ago, but was returned after only a few days because the new owners said she was too much puppy for them too handle.

"She committed the ultimate crime. She dug, she chewed on things, just like a normal puppy," said Valerie Rachel, Director of the Spay and Neuter Clinic. "Mrs. White is hoping to be given a second chance and to be forgiven for acting like a puppy.

Mrs White needs a family who has time to spend with her, love her and give her plenty of attention. A family who will teach her and help her grow into a great loving dog.

Cost for her adoption is $75. This covers her being spayed, wormed, given first shots and micro chipped for permenant identification.

The shelter has recently expanded their hours. They are now open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10:00am to 6:00pm, Tuesday, 10:00am to 3:00pm, and Saturday, 10:00am to 2:00pm. They are located at 1901 North 31st Avenue in Hattiesburg, right behind Antoine College.
