AUSTIN (KXAN) - Sandy is seven or eight years old and a Retriever mix who was found as a stray in July. She is a real sweetheart and gets along great with other dogs at the shelter.
Sandy is an older dog who appears to be house-trained and is a great companion.
If you're interested in meeting Sandy you can visit the Austin Animal Center and find out how to adopt her.
This weekend is also a great time to visit Pet Sense in West Austin because they have a special event going on with the Austin Animal Shelter called the Adopt-a-thon.
The adoption event will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday at Petsense on 7900 N. FM 620, Suite 110.
Each pet adopted will go home with a free bag of pet food and a gift bag filled with toys and treats.
