SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — Meet today’s Stray of the Day, Atlas.

Atlas is a one-to-two-year-old male blonde German Shepherd-Chow mix.

He was surrendered to the shelter because his former owner became ill and couldn’t look after him anymore.

The shelter says he’s a sweet and friendly dog who loves everyone, except cats.

Atlas is available for adoption now.
