ABC Action News helps find homes for dogs and cats currently living in shelters every Friday morning our Pet of the Week segment.

This week we are featuring a true baby. Sassy is a 2-month-old Hound Terrier mix.

According to the American Kennel Club, hounds are known to be friendly and playful dogs who still have the instinct to hunt.

Sassy and her siblings are irresistible puppies that can be shy at first. Shelter workers expect her to be a medium-to-large size dog. Because of her breed, she is not suited for apartment living. 

Sassy is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. The adoption fee for her or siblings is $200 a piece.

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