Judd (A1714091) is a 2 year old male, black & brown Rottweiler& Australian Cattle dog mix weighing 64 pounds. This boy is one of the happiest dogs we know…notice in his picture his tail is a blur. When anyone meets Judd their comment is he wags with his whole body. Judd is looking for more active person/family that will appreciate his exuberance. He knows sit well and he’d love to go to training classes and learn more tricks. He’s eager to please and very proud to show you how smart he is. He’d enjoy growing up with children 8 or over. He’s ready to play he especially enjoys a game of fetch with a tennis ball. We always request your present companion come in to meet your potential adoptee prior to adoption to ensure everybody is happy. Of course Judd would be fine as the only fur-kid receiving all your attention, love and treats. Just look at this happy smiling face and head over a.s.a.p to the Eastside shelter, 8920 Lomas Blvd NE.
Are you presently the proud parent of a Muscle Mutt? That’s our loving nickname for our Pit Bull mixes.
Well, October is Pit Bull Awareness month.
Albuquerque Animal Welfare is offering free public microchip for Pit Bulls and Pit Mixes only. No appointment needed at the East Side Animal Shelter, 8920 Lomas Blvd. N.E., or the West Side Animal Shelter, 11800 Sunset Gardens S.W.
There are free training classes for Pit Bulls and Pit Bull mixes each Saturday at Los AltosPark. The classes were filling up quickly but you can go to www.cabq.gov/pets to check availability/times.
Animal Welfare’s goal is to get resources to these dogs and the folks who love them. Understanding the breed of a Pit Bull is the first step to being a responsible pet owner. A well-trained Pit Bull can be an ambassador for his or her breed, showing the world that with a loving home and training, Pit Bulls can make wonderful pets. Education and responsible owners are critical in changing the perception of this breed.
If you are looking to adopt a pit bull mix our staff and volunteers will be happy to help you find your perfect match. Just think about the time you have to devote to your new pet, what energy level you are looking for, what personality traits you are attracted to etc.
