If you're looking for a cutie canine companion, the SPCA of Hancock's "Pet of the Week" Cindy Lou, might just be the gal for you!

According to our pal Cole from the SPCA, Cindy Lou likes company and is good really good with people of all ages.

"This good girl is about 4 years old and has experience as a certified emotional support animal for her previous owner. She’s a gorgeous black-and-white Staffie and terrier mix with a petite frame and plenty of energy but equal amounts of love."

Cole says she'd prefer to be the only pet in, and would do best in a home without other animals.

"She is still learning some leash manners but is usually a good girl for walks and is extremely treat motivated, so she is highly trainable. Cindy Lou loves spending time outdoors with people and would love for someone to come by and adopt her soon."
