Fuzzy Friends: Artie

Artie is a 10-month-old, neutered, male beagle blend. He’s almost fully grown at 30 pounds and is eager to learn. He’ll do best in a mature home with no feline friends.

Artie is available for adoption from the Helen Woodward Animal Center for $200.

The center’s kennels are open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily (applications are accepted until 5:45 p.m.) at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe. For more information, call 756-4117, option #1, or visit
