Meet Wilder our City of Albuquerque, Animal Welfare Dept. Pet of the Week.

Wilder (ID# 1757677) is a 2 year old, male cream colored, smooth coated Chihuahua mix weighing 14 pounds.This little cutie is looking for a calm quiet adult home where he can be your lap dog.

We have a fun adoption event this weekend “Cinco de Amigo”! Wilder came in with his equally cute brother that was adopted last week so Wilder is in need of a human amigo. Like many small guys it may take a moment or two for him to get comfortable with you. He walks pretty well on leash yet can need some encouragement at times if something frightens him. He also enjoys lap time receiving quality attention and affection.  Wilder was great with his brother yet less comfortable with other dogs. Our small dog play group volunteers have been working to help Wilder get comfortable with new friends yet he should meet any other dogs in the home prior to adoption to ensure a harmonious family.

If your lap is feeling lonely and you think that Wilder is your life time Amigo then hurry on over to Albuquerque Animal Welfare’s Eastside shelter, 8920 Lomas Blvd NE. The adoption event starts Friday, May 5th and runs only through Sunday, May 7th. Our companions will have a reduced adoption fee of just $5. As always the adoption fee includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip and city license. You will just need to renew vaccinations and such each year there after as well as yearly wellness checks with your veterinarian.
