Raja is an 8-year-old red shepherd/lab cross, neutered, friendly, leash-trained, house-trained and who craves human company.
He is great with adults and gentle children, but is reported to be afraid of boys aged 8 to 18 years and afraid of sticks. He has been good with the other shelter dogs. On a recent trial visit to our cat room, he barked at a cat, so we’re not sure about his cat manners.
The Los Alamos Animal Shelter at 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.
