WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Beauty is about 3 years old and could be a pointer-pit bull mix.

She's the sweet and friendly dog Jefferson County SPCA executive director Heather Spezzano brought to the 7 News studio.

Beauty came to the SPCA through Project Freedom Ride, which rescues dogs from kill shelters in Georgia.

She's one of only two dogs at the shelter right now and is the last of the most recent group of Project Freedom Ride dogs.

The shelter is closed for Memorial Day, but you can visit Beauty on Tuesday. The SPCA is normally closed for surgeries, but people visiting specific animals are allowed.

Spezzano also talked about why the SPCA can't take in stray dogs. She says it's because individual towns contract with various people to handle strays and it's outside the SPCA's jurisdiction.

You can hear her explanation in the video.

For more information on adopting an animal, volunteering, becoming a member, or donating, call the shelter at 315-782-3260.
