Pet of the Week: Penny the Pit Bull

Penny is a two-year-old female pit bull who has weaned her litter of puppies and is now interested in finding a home of her own. 

She walks nicely on leash, stays close on off-leash hikes and comes when called. Penny exhibits great mid-level energy. She adores kids and is okay with cats and other dogs.

Penny is crate trained and comes with a free training consultation with Proton Pawsitive Dog Training to help her settle in. Call Jacinta at 433-8617 for a personal introduction with Penny.

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.
