Meet him in News 13's latest installment of 'Pet of the Week.'

"Hi my name is Shelby and this weeks 'Pet of the Week is Rixson. Rixson is a one year old english springer spaniel mixed with Rottweiler.

He is a very young exuberant dog. He's got a lot of energy. He was actually surrendered because he had a little too much energy for the small children in the home. He does well with older children but smaller ones he tends to knock over so we are asking families with older children, he would do best with.

Rixson has been known to do well with other dogs. He can be pretty excitable when he meets them at first. Rixson has never been around cats so it's important to do cat introductions slowly and carefully. Mutual visits with other dogs in the home are always recommended just to ensure it's a great fit.

Rixson is known to be house broken and kennel trained. Rixson is a young dog, he's going to need some basic obedience training. He would be a great do to take on hikes and go on lots of adventures with.

Rixson has lots of other dog friends at the shelter and cats and small animals looking for forever homes."
