TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- Meet our Pet of the Week, Bluebell.

She's a four-year old American Staffordshire Terrier mix.

Bluebell came into the shelter as a stray in December.

Volunteers say she's very laid back and loves calm walks. She's potty trained and gets along well with other calm, respectful dogs.

Bluebell has already been spayed. She has slight arthritis, but shelter staff are starting treatment already. Bluebell is also heartworm positive, but there are several treatment plans available to get her fully healthy.

Her adoption fee is $65.

To learn more about all of the animals available for adoption, click here or follow the shelter on Facebook.   

You can catch our Pet of the Week every Tuesday morning at 6:30 on WTXL Sunrise.

The Animal Service Center is also looking for a part time vet tech. Officials say, "Our vet techs are an integral part of the Vet Team and assist our veterinarians with high-volume, high-quality surgical sterilization and other surgeries, as well as assist with urgent and emergent veterinary care for the animals at the Animal Service Center."

The position would cover 20-25 hours per week, usually on Saturdays and weekday afternoons. Pay ranges from $13 to $15, depending on experience.

Education requirements are a high school diploma or equivalent, with at least two years of college preferred.

There's also a minimum of one year experience as a veterinary technician in a private practice, animal shelter, or equivalent. Volunteering with the Tallahassee Animal Service Center Vet Team Volunteer Program may qualify.
