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 7-month-old Sheltie mix puppy.

Pinto comes from Pet Pal Animal Shelter in St. Petersburg. He is a little Mexican jumping bean who will definitely bring a smile to your face.

Shelter workers say Pinto is a smart, energetic puppy who would love a home that will keep both his mind and body busy.

Shelties are smaller dogs known for their intelligence. They are also vocal, excitable, energetic abd very willing to please their owners.

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