Pet Of The Week: Paco The Dog

Paco is a 5-year-old neutered male cattle dog/bulldog cross with a red-blonde coat.
He is very friendly with adults. He might also be okay with older children who will not try to restrain him or to pet him when he does not want contact. Paco does not want to be grabbed by the collar while he is harnessed for a walk, but once harnessed, he really enjoys his walks. He wants his food bowl to be left alone. No dogs, please. He has never been with cats, so caution is advised.
The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 505.662.8179, has a great selection of adoptable pets; see the Petfinder website for photos here. All adoptable pets are micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and have up-to-date on vaccinations.
