Pet of the week: Verla

A 3-month-old Dachshund/Chihuahua mix is the Wisconsin Humane Society's pet of the week. Verla is available for adoption from the Milwaukee campus and  is described by staff as sweet and affectionate. Verla is already spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. While puppies do require a lot of time to train, staff says now is a great time to teach children time management and compassion for animals. 

\"Back-to-school is a great time to do that because everybody is sort of resetting their clocks and getting back into that routine each day. So, figuring out who's going to walk her every day, making sure she gets outside plenty, who's going to feed her. It's a great way to teach responsibility and companionship,\" said Allie Christman, the Marketing Coordinator for the Wisconsin Humane Society.
