Pet of the Week: Sheila the Dog

Sheila is a friendly two-year-old tan female who is housebroken, crate trained, has some obedience training, and loves to play and go for hikes.

She behaves very nicely on a leash and in a car. Sheila wants adult companionship, because children frighten her. She also needs a good fence for those times alone, so she doesn’t exercise her climbing, excavation or agility jumping skills. 

For a personalized introduction to this sweet dog, call her sponsor at (505) 231-1744.
