ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — ABC Action News works with local shelters to find homes for pets through our weekly Pet of the Week segment.

This week we are featuring Luke, a 4-and-a-half month old Dachshund/Beagle mix. He recently arrived at Pet Pal Animal Shelter from another shelter.

Employees say Luke is super sweet and has the cutest nose.

According to the American Kennel Club, hounds were traditionally used for their hunting skills, a trait they keep to this day as they love chasing small wildlife like squirrels or rabbits.

Luke is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. His adoption fee is $200.
