At the SPCA: Brody, 2-year-old Jack Russell/Australian cattle dog

Brody loves to play and he loves people who love to play even more! This 2-year-old Jack Russell/Australian cattle dog mix is affectionate, loyal and looking for a family that enjoys exercise.

He should do fine with older kids but really young children might find his energy a bit too much. Brody can be anxious around other dogs, but we think with a friendly, older, more-mature dog, he might make a friend. Visit him at the Sacramento SPCA, 6201 Florin Perkins Road or

Don’t miss your chance for some great shopping. Purrses for Pets, a benefit for the Sacramento SPCA, is from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Arden Hills Resort Club & Spa.
