Your next best friend: Mickey

Ever heard of a breed called “feist”? I’m Mickey, and I’m one of those. The feist is a hunting breed that originated in the rural southeastern United States. We were bred to hunt squirrels — not an easy job, as you can imagine. I’m young, medium-sized and came to RAWL as a stray. I love to play — retrieving is a favorite game — and I get along well with most other dogs and cats. I’ve given up hunting and now want to live with humans. Interested?

This past week, two of my canine colleagues were joined with new owners. The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League (RAWL), 160 Weaver Road, Amissville, is open 8 to 1 daily. Call 540-937-3283 or visit
