‘Mason, a New Mexico Hero’

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Chasing rabbits, exploring the canyons around Los Alamos and taking walks with his family are just a few of the things that Mason, a mixed-breed dog enjoys.
However, things for Mason weren’t always carefree. He was once a homeless dog born in the wild that was caught and taken to the Española Animal Shelter. In 2010, he was adopted by White Rock resident Caroline “Cass” Mason and soon found himself at home with her other dog Sibley and cat, Mickey Mouser.
The meeting of the two was delayed a bit, but it seems that fate intervened. Mason had seen the canine’s photo on the animal shelter’s website and traveled to Española in hopes of adopting him. She was instantly interested in him because he shared her name. When she got to the shelter, she was disappointed to find that Mason was not there. He had been placed in foster care.
As luck would have it, their paths would cross at the annual Dog Jog. His foster family had taken him there to participate and Mason immediately recognized him and asked if she could take him for a walk. Later that day, she went to the animal shelter to sign the paperwork officially adopting the dog. And so he became part of her family.
