Pets of the Week for Aug. 12

Lucy the dog1 / 2
Buddy the dog2 / 2

LUCY is a gray female miniature poodle mix who is almost 11 years old and is available for adoption through Animal Allies in Duluth, 4006 Airport Road. Lucy is a sweet little lady who loves to be with people. She is reported to be house-trained, gets along well with other dogs and likes car rides.

An adoption fee is required for all adoptions. Animal Allies uses the “Meet your Match” adoption program designed by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The program evaluates an animal’s behavior and interests and matches them to an adopter’s preferences so you take home a pet you really click with. Call (218) 722-2110 or visit for more information.

BUDDY is a 6½-year-old male golden retriever available for adoption through Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota Inc., or RAGOM. He loves children of all ages and enjoys cats. He’s housebroken, knows basic commands and loves to play fetch. Interactions with other dogs sometimes strains his good manners; he would do best in a home where he is the only dog.

If you would like to learn more about Buddy, call (952) 946-8070 or visit
