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

This week we are featuring Trixie, a 6-month-old Hound mix.

Shelter workers say she is full of puppy energy and would love a backyard where she can run around.

Trixie would make a great dog for a family with older kids. Her size and energy level could be too much for toddlers.

According to the American Kennel Club, hounds were traditionally used for their hunting skills, a trait they keep to this day as they love chasing small wildlife like squirrels or rabbits.

Trixie is spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. Her adoption fee is $200.

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

Pet Pal Animal Shelter is located at 405 22nd Street South Street in St. Petersburg. You can visit all their dogs and cats up for adoption Tuesdays to Fridays from 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 to 4:30 p.m.
