Puppy says 'I Love You'

SACRAMENTO, CA - A 4-month-old Chihuahua puppy with a special talent is up for adoption at the Sacramento SPCA shelter.

Bitty was a stray found in Elk Grove and turned over into the SPCA's care, SPCA spokesperson Tracie Popma said.

A customer at the shelter saw Bitty and said she used to have a similar dog who could say, "I Love You." Popma said the customer said, "I Love You" to the puppy and Bitty mimicked her.

Check the video below of the puppy speaking:

If you are interested in adopting Bitty,  you can come down to the shelter on 6201 Florin Perkins Road, Sacramento.

Baby Mongoose Lemur

The pair of Mongoose Lemurs that live across from the Tall Wonders giraffe deck had a baby! Mom gave birth during the day on Saturday, May 11th to her second baby. Their first youngster is also in the enclosure and learning important parenting skills from watching her mother with this infant.
