The new Pet of the Week is Oates, a 6-year-old Pekingese mix.
"Say it isn’t so" – This week's pet of the week is "everything your heart desires" (and more)!
This affectionate dog, who was lovingly named after Philadelphia's rock-and-roll legend John Oates, is ready to make all your dog owning "dreams come true!"
Oates is the perfect balance of fun loving energy and couch potato. He is potty trained, has great leash manners and gets along well with other smaller dogs. While people are his absolute favorite, older, calm children are more his style.
Fill out an application at Street Tails Animal Rescue to add Oates to your very own Hall of Fame!
