Great news! Former SPCA Pet of the Week Sam was adopted because his new mom read about him on CultureMap. However, Penny is still waiting for her forever family.

This week meet Mia. She came to the SPCA of Texas on July 30 when she was rescued from inhumane conditions. When she first arrived, she was very emaciated. For the past few weeks, though, she has received plenty of food and TLC, and now she is happy and healthy and looking good.

Could this sweet pup be your new four-legged companion? Let’s find out:

Breed: Pit bull mix

Age: 3 years

Weight: 37 pounds

Personality: Mia is such a delight to be around. She has a great personality and plenty of love for everyone. She’s just happy to be surrounded by friends wherever she goes. She has cute little spots on her black-and-white coat, and the healthier she gets, the more they shine. She likes her toys, of course, and she really likes to snuggle. She also has great manners.

Vital Stats: She has been spayed and microchipped, and she has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. Unfortunately, Mia is heartworm positive, but the SPCA of Texas has received donations to pay for her treatment.

Come meet Mia today (#134571) at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas at 2400 Lone Star Dr., near I-30 and Hampton Road. The center is open seven days a week, noon-6 pm.
