Pets of the Week: March 15

By The Daily Times staff


Erica: Are you looking for a dog that loves people? Well, it is your lucky day because Erica is a real sweetheart of a girl. She is a cattle dog mix that has personality and charm. She is smart, and, with the right training, she will mind very well.


Tusk: Tusk has been happily living in the offices at the Farmington Regional Animal Shelter for the past few weeks, and it’s time for him to find a home of his own. Tusk, who was a stray, is very sweet. He can be a little mouthy and forget his manners when he’s excited, but he listens very well. He knows how to sit and would be considered housetrained. Tusk can be a little protective and barks at people outside the window, but he has been friendly with almost everyone he meets. He is a Labrador and Rottweiler mix that is 2 to 3 years old. An ideal family would be one that allows him to stay indoors and that is prepared for the occasional veterinary bill or two. Tusk is fine with children. He can be picky with other dogs, but does OK with some. Tusk would make an awesome companion and a great walking or hiking partner. His adoption fee is $80.



Cheddar: Cheddar is sweet, laid-back and affectionate. She is very affectionate. If you have a free hand for kitty pets, come and meet her. She is spayed and is ready to go home today.


Soto: This is a handsome guy with a sweet personality. He loves to get attention and be pet. He is looking for a home where he can be an indoor cat that is treated like a family member. His adoption fee includes his neutering, a microchip, first vaccine and 30 days of free pet insurance.

The Farmington Animal Shelter is located at 133 Browning Parkway and can be reached at 505-599-1098. Check for a up-to-date list of pets up for adoption.



Joe: Joe is a nice, 13-year-old paint gelding that stands about 14.2 hands high.

His owners couldn't take care of him anymore due to age and health issues.

Joe is gentle and can be handled. The right home for Joe would use natural horsemanship methods to train him to ride.

He leads, loads and stands for the farrier. His adoption fee is $400.
