Pets of the Week: Meet Zip and Sonya

Contributed photo

Sonya and Zip visit with Kay Sauceda, who has been with the Dalton Police Department for eight years and is the department's administrative assistant.

Zip and Sonya were surrendered to the Humane Society of Northwest Georgia shelter after their owner fell on hard times and lost their home.

Zip is a 5-year-old male Chihuahua mix and Sonya is a 4-year-old female Jack Russell/Basenji mix.

Both of these friendly, small dogs will make wonderful companions for an adult or family with older children. We would be over the moon if Zip and Sonya could find a home together. Mature and calm, both are well behaved and already housebroken. They will need a fenced-in yard to keep them safe when outside.

Zip is a bit of a couch potato and could stand to lose a few pounds. He loves to have his chin scratched and is quick to roll over for a belly rub.

Sonya is more active but enjoys snuggling too.

Both do well with other dogs. If you’re looking for a sweet, small companion, please consider adopting these adorable pups. Zip and Sonya will make fabulous pets for some lucky families.
