Skylar is about 14 months old and a terrier/lab mix waiting for a good home to call his own.

He is residing at the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter and is reportedly good with adults, gentle children, cats and dogs.

Skylar is submissive and likes the safety of a nearby crate while he figures out what is expected.

He is housebroken and leash trained and enjoys attention and going for walks with shelter volunteers.

Skylar is neutered and up-to-date with his routine shots.

His primary color is black
