Meatball, a 5-year-old Chihuahua male mix, is the East Bay SPCA's pet of the week. He's got tall ears and a curly tail, plus a friendly outgoing spirit. Meatball is just more than 6½ pounds. Outstanding companionship can come in small packages. If you would like a mutually satisfying, low-maintenance relationship, Meatball might be just what you need. Come see Meatball at the East Bay SPCA Oakland Adoption Center at 8323 Baldwin St. Visit www.eastbayspca.org to see more adoptable animals or call 510-569-0702 for more information.
