ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - ABC Action News helps find homes for dogs currently living in shelters every Friday morning our Pet of the Week segment.

We are featuring Maisy this week. She is a 3-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix.

According to the American Kennel Club, terriers are intelligent, good-natured dogs who are excellent guardians.

Shelter workers say Maisy was recently at Pet Pal's Pup Crawl and mingled well with dogs of all sizes.

Maisy is a little camera shy, but she is no mouse. She has all the makings of a great companion dog.

Thanks to the Pit Project and sponsor, Maisy's adoption fee is only $75. She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. You must own your own home to adopt her.

For more information about how to adopt Maisy or other adoptable animals at Pet Pal Animal Shelter, you can call them (727) 328-7738 or go online to
