This 7-week-old Maltese-Chihuahua mix puppy was nicknamed “Doogie Bowzer” by Animal Rescue of Tracy volunteers. He weighs only a bit more than a pound, but he is ready to meet potential adopters this weekend at the West Valley Mall. He can be adopted after he is 8 weeks old. Doogie was found with his mother, Sadie, a Maltese mix, at an abandoned home.

The rescue group is also having a “Black and White Ball” promotion on all-black and black-and-white cats through the end of the year. Adoption fees are reduced to $25 for adults and $52 for kittens.

Animal Rescue of Tracy is a nonprofit, all-volunteer rescue group that has pet adoption fairs for dogs and cats from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays at the West Valley Mall. Members will also make arrangements to show animals in rescue during the week. For information: 642-4324 or
