SHELTER News:

Beau is a terrific, friendly, social and all around great dog recently surrendered to the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter. 

He is young, about two years old and loves to take walks and hang with people. Beau is a tan (almost gold) and white bulldog mix. He seems eager to please and should be very trainable. 

Beau is big and strong, so is likely to be a bit too much dog for a family with small children.

The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 505.662.8179, has a great selection of adoptable pets; see the Petfinder website for photos
