PAWS Humane Pet of the Week: Tiny the Whippet

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Tiny the Whippet is the PAWS Humane pet of the week, and appeared on the WTVM Noon broadcast today, September 5, in one of the quirkier live guest appearances on the WTVM set.

Former Columbus Mayor Bob Poydasheff, a spokesperson for PAWS Humane, says Whippets are very special dogs.

"I just want to point out that dogs such as these consistently win in kennel shows in New York. They're very, very good, and they're easy to take care of. They're very smart dogs, they're very sleek, and they're in great demand," he says.

The fee for Tiny the Whippet is $180. He is neutered, microchipped, and ready for a home.

To adopt Tiny, contact PAWS Humane at (706)565-0035.
