Meet Cleo, this week's Pet of the Week. She is a sweet young lady looking for a home to call her own.

Cleo comes from Pet Pal Animal Shelter in St. Petersburg. She is a 4-year-old female Pug-Beagle mix, or in designer dog lingo, a Puggle.

Shelter workers say Cleo is true to both of her breeds. She is a playful girl with loads of energy and seems to be always smiling. Who doesn't want a dog that is always happy?

Cleo is a special needs adoption because she needs a special diet. She would require a meet-and-greet with other dogs. She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $200.
