Pet Of The Week: Willow The Cattle Dog Cross

Willow is a petite, 7-year-old female cattle dog cross. Her family was forced to move when their rental house was sold, so she is back at the shelter, where she was adopted a few years ago.

Willow does well with adults and gentle children, but she can be a bit protective of her family around other dogs. 

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.

Shelter hours are noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 3 p.m. Sundays.
