Pet of the Week: Sho the Dog

Sho is a 4-year-old neutered male. Volunteers guess that he is a pit/husky mix – one look at his stunning blue eyes and you’ll see why volunteers think that he has some husky in him.

Sho came to the shelter with his son Pounce, who has since been adopted, and Sho really hopes that it’s his turn next. He is a very easy going dog who would make a great family dog.

Sho would love to show you his training – he knows how to “sit” and also is learning how to “lie down.” He is crate-trained and housebroken, but he will need a secure fence since he likes to go on occasional adventures.

His two favorite things are snuggling and playtime.

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. For information about volunteering, adopting and donating, and learning more about special needs animals and cats and dogs in foster care, visit
