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

This week we are featuring Mister. He is a 6-year-old Yorkie/Lhasa Apso mix up for adoption from Pet Pal Animal Shelter in St. Petersburg.

According to the American Kennel Club, Yorkies "packs lots of big-town attitude" into their small bodies. They provide their owners with years of laughs and love. The breed can live up to 15 years.

Shelter workers report Mister is bright, social boy who will charm you with his little dance. He loves to play fetch, but will be just as happy cuddled up on your couch.

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