Miss Suzie is a sweet little lady that only weighs 46 pounds. She's a black, white and tan Beagle, Basset mix. She has an extremely sweet personality and has already been taught to sit, stay and shake. Christy an Animal Control Officer said "Suzie was an owner turn in, simply because the owner could no longer afford to feed herself let along her dog too. So after eight years Susie's owner brought her here to the Animal Control Shelter. She needs to go to a good home."

I worked with Miss Suzie while taking her picture, that's when I learned that she sits, shakes and stays on command. Somebody has already done the hard work and trained her. She is an older dog so she doesn't move all the fast, she'll need a good loving home and Miss Suzie loves kids. Suzie is in cell W-9, she's got a few days to go before She'll be scheduled to be put down. Arron Vannoy the Shelter's Director said "Miss Suzie will be featured at the Pet Smart adoption this weekend, so maybe we can find her a home there."

Please tell anyone within earshot range and help spread the word about all the KEAN-Critters up for adoption. Tell anyone that will listen and/or appreciate a story about a pet that wants love. KEAN-Critters really need to find homes right away. Please help.
