BUCKWHEAT is a 1-year-old American Staffordshire terrier mix available for adoption through Friends of Animals in Cloquet. He's a kind-hearted dog who is friendly, playful and smart. He's eager to find a caring, forever family to show him all about the world.

Friends of Animals also has this friendly girl named ALEXIS, an 8-month-old female black Labrador mix, available for adoption. She's still a puppy, so she's very active and playful. She's a smart dog who is ready and eager to learn new things, and is already learning some basic commands.

An adoption fee is required for all adoptions. Call (218) 879-1655 or go to www.foaonline.org for more information.
