Pet of the Week: Sheila the Dog

Pet of the Week: Sheila is a friendly two-and-a-half-year-old tan spayed female that is housebroken, crate trained, has some obedience training, and loves to play and go for hikes.  

She behaves nicely on a leash and in a car. Sheila wants adult companionship and would prefer to be an only dog. Cats are okay. Her favorite activity would be a TV marathon next to her favorite person. For a personalized introduction to this sweet dog, call her foster Mom at 505.433.8617.
