Pet of the Week is Tessa, a 2-to-4-year-old pit-bull-terrier mix at the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society.

Tessa is cuddly and sweet. She is house-trained and crate-trained and knows the commands "sit" and "paw." She likes other dogs and is gentle with children. She would do best in a home without cats.

To adopt Tessa, contact PAWS at 215-298-9680, ext. 16, or at, before visiting the shelter, at 2nd and Arch streets, Old City.

When inquiring, provide her tag identifier, A29307502. A $150 fee includes sterilization, vaccines and microchipping.
