WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Mario is up for adoption at the Briggs Animal Adoption Center in Charles Town, WV. He will make an appearance on our noon show on Thursday for our Petline 9 segment.

BAACS writes, "This little guy may be tiny, but he's really a super 'Mario!' Mario is a neutered Shih Tzu/Terrier mix who weighs 7 ½ lbs and is only 7 months of age. He can be a little guarded and protective of his humans around other dogs and would not be a good dog for a home with young, active children. Although he can be initially shy with some people, Mario warms up pretty quickly because he loves lap time with his human companions!"

To learn more about Mario, check out our Dogs for Adoption page at www.baacs.org or call Briggs Animal Adoption Center at 304-724-6558 and ask to speak with an Adoption Counselor.
