KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Meet Zappy the Young-Williams Pet of the Week. Zappy is a very energetic dog who already knows how to sit and will offer a paw, especially if you have cookies.

The staff at the animal shelter says Zappy is a perfect walking and hiking partner. He would prefer to be the only dog in the house and is better with older children.
