Pet of the Week 4-14-19

-A A +A

It was no April Fools joke for Scarlet, a German shepherd golden retriever mix  that wound up at the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter April 1.

Scarlet’s previous owners had a change in their life circumstances and had to leave Scarlet at the shelter.

Shelter staff said Scarlet is a bit of a nervous Nellie. She gets nervous around quick and unexpected movements. When she gets scared, she barks and tries to hide.

She is good with other dogs. Cats, livestock and small children are another story.

Scarlet would do well with a childless couple or a family with older children.

Her best quality is her loyalty to her people. She also loves attention, toys and treats.

She walks well on a leash and knows basic commands like “sit,” “stay,”  and “down.” She is also house trained.
Scarlet is 3-years-old, microchipped, vaccinated and free of health issues, unless loneliness is included.
