Pet of the Week: Shyloh the Black Shepherd Mix

FOS News:

Shyloh is a 2-year-old black shepherd mix and a wonderful pet. He is friendly with adults, loves kids, cats and dogs.

The reason he came to the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter is that his family moved away without him.

Like many dogs, Shyloh will need some time and company to feel wanted in a new home. A tall, secure fence is recommended if he must be left alone in a yard.

He is amazing at finding creative ways to get to K9 companions and human friends. We have some great ideas about securing your fence. Just ask!

Shyloh is house broken and leash trained and a joy to take on walks.

The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, (505) 662-8179, has a large selection of on-site adoptable pets. Others are living off-campus in foster homes.

Be sure to visit the Friends of the Shelter website at, where you can get more information about volunteering, adopting and donating.

Also check out our Petfinder page for photos and to learn more about all of the adoptable pets at

This would be a wonderful time to consider giving a home to an orphaned animal living in the shelter.

This week the shelter is open Sunday and Monday, but closed Tuesday for Christmas.

Happy Holidays from Friends of the Shelter and the Shelter Staff.
