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

Greta is a 2.5-year-old Shepherd/Heeler mix. She is a medium-energy gal who is an attentive gal who enjoys spending time with her special person and makes a lovely companion. She is especially polite and is respectfully quiet while kenneled. She possesses excellent leash skills and an unassuming spirit. While her tongue has black spots, they are healthy freckles rather than signs of Chow Chow origin.

Greta is ready to make someone an awesome therapy, companion or hiking dog!

Greta’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.

Contact the Cullman County Animal Shelter at 256-734-5448 or visit them at 935 Convent Rd. NE. Reach them by email at

Good News!
