The Animal Allies Pet Of The Week is a very special young dog named Precious. When she came to Animal Allies the medical team discovered that she had a life threatening heart condition and would not survive with out surgery. Due to the massive expense to have this procedure Animal Allies reached out to the community for help. As expected the amazing people of the Twin Ports came through and enough money was raised for her to get the surgery, which was a success and now she is recovered and healthy.

Precious is a white American Staffordshire Terrier Mix who is about 2 years old. She is on the rather small size at 48 pounds, but she has a big personality and loves cuddles. She is deaf, so she would need to be placed with someone who is willing to work with her to help her be the best dog she can be. Precious has been spayed, microchipped and updated on all her shots.

If you are interested in adopting her, please call the adoption team at 218-722-5341 for more information! The adoption staff is available by phone starting right at 10:30 to 6:00 PM Tuesday-Saturday, and 10:30 to 4:00 PM Sunday. The adoption process is first come first serve so whoever reaches their staff first will have the opportunity to place a hold. Animal Allies also provides free lifetime post-adoption counseling to help with any behavioral issues or concerns you may have for your new pet!  Animal Allies is located at 4006 Airport Road is Duluth and website is
