Puppy that narrowly missed being mailed from Minnesota to Georgia goes up for adoption
The city of Minneapolis says a drawing to adopt Guess, a 5-month-old schnauzer-poodle mix, will be held Friday. People who are interested have to be at the Minneapolis Animal Care and Control shelter, and animal control manager Dan Niziolek says he's expecting a line.
Guess was saved from a trip through the mail to Georgia that officials say probably would have been fatal when postal workers opened the package.
Shelter official Jeanette Wiedemeier Bower said hundreds of people from across the U.S. and the world have asked to adopt Guess. She says the agency hopes the attention will encourage people to adopt other animals.
