Former featured pets Agnes and Shy are still available for adoption. But Lucky the Chihuahua mix got lucky and found a new family. This week meet Petunia, who was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on November 12 because she did not fit in with her previous owner's lifestyle.

Does she fit into yours? Here's everything you need to know:

Breed: Shepherd mix

Age: 11 months

Weight: 66 pounds

Personality: Petunia is an active girl who loves to run, play and chase tennis balls. In fact, keep away is her favorite pastime. As a growing pup, she has lots of energy.

Vital stats: She has been spayed, heartworm tested (she’s negative) and microchipped, and she has received her age-appropriate vaccinations.
