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

According to Ruttkay, Trixie is an 2.5-3-year-old Terrier mix. She is a medium energy gal who finds comfort in the presence of her favorite people. She loves dealing with the blazing summer weather by taking a dip in the kiddie pool. As a bonus, she is also trained in leash protocol!

Trixie is ready to make someone a perfect companion, therapy or hiking dog!

Trixie’s adoption fee includes DHLPP vaccine, Bordetella vaccines, rabies vaccine, wormer, general exam at the vet, 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
