Pet of the Week: Have yourself a Curly little Christmas!


CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman County Animal Shelter’s Donna Ruttkay shares a bonus Cullman Tribune Pet of the Week:

Curly is a shepherd mix who’s approximately 1.5-1.75-years-old. He’s a lively but not hyper medium-energy pet with a soft temperament. He’s intelligent and attentive to his humans, and is developing his leash skills. And if you enjoy backyard sports, he’s a ball player!

Ruttkay said, “This sweet fellow was rescued by a Good Samaritan. They held him overnight. She indicated he was quiet in his kennel and liked to be petted.” 

Curly has the makings of a good hiking, companion or therapy dog, and the shelter considers him a good prospect for obedience training.

Curly’s adoption fee is $90 which includes: DHLPP vaccine, Bordetella vaccines, rabies vaccine, wormer, general exam at the vet, neutering, microchip, free 30-day health insurance policy issued by 24PetWatch (with valid email only) and a free bag of food from Cullman Pet Depot (you must pay sales tax).

Animal shelter staff and volunteers work with their dogs to make sure they are accustomed to being around people, walking on a leash and practicing good behavior. Several of the shelter’s dogs have even been “hired” to work as therapy and special needs service dogs.  

Please consider adopting, to give a rescued pet a chance at a happy and healthy life.
