MADISON (WKOW) — This week’s Pet of the Week is a quirky Chihuahua mix named Tessie.
On Friday, Kaitie Swedlund with Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin brought along the 1-year-old dog to meet the Wake Up Wisconsin team.
Swedlund says Tessie loves to play! She says Tessie particularly enjoys playing with tug ropes. After some play time, Tessie likes to curl up next to you and take a nap.
Swedlund notes that Tessie can be a bit reserved at first until she’s comfortable with you.
She did well in her foster home with a cat and a small dog. She was also introduced to a large dog and didn’t much like the large dog getting in her face. After they established boundaries all was well, though.
Swedlund also mentioned a low-cost clinic that was happening this weekend. The Beloit Vaccine Clinic is on Saturday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the U.S. Shipping Center at 2571 Park Avenue.
