Pet of the Week: Dallas the Dog



Dallas the German Shepherd mix is described as loving and active by Los Alamos Animal Shelter personnel.  

She enjoys long walks, chasing balls and play time at the dog park with calm, large dogs. She also loves to cool off in the pool on a hot day. Dallas is a quick learner and knows basic obedience; sit, down and enjoys using her nose.

Dallas is a little shy when introduced to new things and situations, but adapts quickly. She would love to be part of an active family who will take her for long hikes or perhaps a daily jog.

The Shelter, 226 East Road, (505) 662-8179, has a large selection of adoptable pets. Please be aware that the Los Alamos Animal Shelter is NOT a no-kill shelter … it does have a nice selection of animals, but there is currently not room for them all. Check out the Petfinder page for photos and to learn more about the adoptable pets at

All adoptable pets are micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations.
