Pet of the Week: Turbo the Dog

Pet of the Week: Handsome and friendly 2-year-old Turbo arrived at the Los Alamos County Animal shelter because his owner moved to a place that would not allow dogs.

Turbo likes adult humans, female dogs and some male dogs. He does not know any cats.

His size and energy are not conducive to children, and it is not known how he relates to them.

Turbo loves tennis balls and wants to retrieve them for you. Turbo has recently been diagnosed with thyroid issues.

The medication is inexpensive and easy to administer. Turbo’s care should ideally include a regular exercise program.

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

Visit the Friends of the Shelter website:, for information about volunteering, adopting and donating.
