Pet of the Week: Cupid will make you fall in love!


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

Cupid is a 4-year-old hound mix. She’s a lively-but-not-hyper, medium-energy pet who’s skilled on her leash and craves human companionship. Ruttkay described her as “meek and unassuming,” and said that she stands patiently to be bathed and responds well to encouragement. She likes to be told she’s a good girl!

The staff thinks that Cupid may not have had much human friendship, but she has really blossomed with a little help. Of the photo she sent, Ruttkay said, “Don’t you think she has the most precious and unique face? Took days until she was comfortable and then this wonderful  expression appeared.” 

Cupid has the makings of a good therapy, companion or reading dog.

Cupid’s adoption fee is $100 which includes: DHLPP vaccine, Bordetella vaccines, rabies vaccine, wormer, general exam at the vet, spaying, 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 canine friends 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.
