Pet Of The Week: Tyson The Dog

Tyson is a 1.5-year-old neutered male pit cross. He returned to the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter when his owner’s rental home changed the rules.

Tyson is active and playful. He is at a good age to continue training. He is reported to be friendly with adults and gentle children and most dogs. He might be a bit too active for small children. It’s not yet known how he is with cats, but he is reported to have a high prey drive with ducks and other birds.

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. All adoptable pets are micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and have up-to-date on vaccinations.
