Rose Johnson of Lexington Park kisses Blanche, the 8 month-old border collie, Jack Russell terrier mix she recently adopted from the Well Pet Clinic in Millison Plaza. Johnson hadn’t had a dog for 10 years because she was a renter. After buying a place of her own, finding a four-legged companion was high on her to-do list. Adoptions are scheduled at the clinic, 21800 N. Shangri-La Drive #16, Saturdays 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., or visit animalrelieffund.org.
