Pets of the Week: Jan. 24
Kruger: Kruger is a handsome 4-year-old German shepherd mix who has been at the shelter way too long! He's very smart and active and is looking for a home that can help keep him occupied but also provide a lot of love and attention. Kruger seems to do OK with other dogs but can be a little forward with new dogs. He would most likely do fine with a playful female dog.
Emma: Emma is a 1-year-old brindle and pit bull mix. Emma is super sweet and loves to cuddles with her humans. She is quiet and calm but also ready for a good long walk to playtime in the yard. The Farmington Regional Animal Shelter's dog walkers love Emma and want to see her in a good home. Emma is a special girl who would love a chance to show you how wonderful she is.
Roulette: Roulette is a 11/2-year-old shepherd mix with possibly some heeler or pit bull in her heritage. Roulette is another one of the shelter's long-term dogs that really needs a good home. She needs some training but is very smart and wants to please. She can be a bit mouthy but once in a home with proper redirection she should do great. Being at the shelter simply isn't working for her anymore and she needs a good home. She would do fine in a home with another dog that can match her energy level and wants to play.
Penelope: Penelope is a sweet pit bull mix who is about 2 years old. Penelope is wonderful with other dogs and would love a home with a playful, confident dog she can bond with. Penelope can come off as a little shy and timid at first but she gets to know people quickly and has a very good nature about her. She was surrendered to the shelter because her owners were moving, and she really would like another place to call home.
The Farmington Animal Shelter is located at 133 Browning Parkway and can be reached at 505-599-1098. Check Petfinder.com for a up-to-date list of pets up for adoption.
Peanut: Peanut is an 18-year-old gelding.
Once used as a lesson horse, Peanut is now retired. Due to some arthritis, Peanut cannot be ridden. He is being offered for adoption as a pasture pal only.
If you have a horse in need of a companion or if you can provide Peanut with a loving home of his own, please contact Four Corners Equine Rescue. He is a very nice horse to groom and pamper, too. Peanut leads, loads and stands for the farrier. The adoption fee for Peanut is $200.
