ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The ABC Action News Pet of the Week segment airing on Friday mornings tries to help find homes for dogs in Tampa Bay area animal shelters.

This week you have an opportunity to bring home an adorable girl. Mercy is a 4-year-old, 23-pound Boston Terrier who would make for a loving, loyal companion.

Boston Terriers are known for having big, round eyes and a bright personality, according to the American Kennel Club.

Mercy is a quiet, social girl with a heart of gold. She would do best in an active family that will include her in their fitness activities.

Mercy has been vaccinated, de-wormed, microchipped and spayed. All she needs now is a family. Her adoption fee is $200.
