Every Friday ABC Action News puts a special spotlight on a dog or cat that needs a home in our Pet of the Week segment.

This week we are featuring a Black Mouth Cur mix. Meet Matilda. This 4-year-old fun-loving, very social dog comes from Pet Pal Animal Shelter in St. Petersburg.

If you need a running buddy or even just want someone to play with, look no further. Matilda loves balls, walks beautifully on a leash, and will make a wonderful companion. Her favorite thing to do is give you doggy kisses.

Matilda is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $200.
