Animals of the week: Hal is gentle. Hallie loves to cuddle.

JACKSON, MI – The Jackson County Animal Shelter, 3770 Spring Arbor Road, has many pets available for adoption.

Here are two.

Hallie is a 4 year old American Staffordshire mix bitch who is predominantly white with unique black markings. Hallie is a happy, active girl who enjoys the outdoors and works on learning commands and walking on a leash. Someone taught her to jump on your chest for a hug, which she loves to do.
