Pet of the Week: Marmaduke the Brindle Pit Mix

Marmaduke, the brindle pit mix, exhibits loads of energy.

Shelter volunteers have been working on helping Marmaduke learn how to walk on a leash. He just wants to go, go, go. One of the volunteers has been putting a doggy backpack on him, and he loves it, so he would probably be a good hiking dog.

He seems to get along better with female dogs, particularly submissive female dogs. Marmaduke just shines when he’s away from the shelter, so we know how nice he will be in a home of his own.

All adoptable pets are microchipped, spayed or neutered, and brought up-to-date on vaccinations. Dogs are checked for heartworm.

The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, (505) 662-8179, has a great selection of adoptable pets.

Visit the Friends of the Shelter’s new website at for information about volunteering, adopting and donating, or call  (505) 662-8179.
