Meet Juice, OurPet of the Week! Free Microchip in October!

ID# A1781646- Juice is a 8 month old Tricolor Australian Shepherd mix.  She is a delightful happy pup waiting to find her forever home.  Juice is dog friendly and absolutely loves people, she especially loves to greet people out on walks.  She is energetic but does calm down after exercise.  She had a surgery recently on her hind right leg, but it is healing well and she is using it comfortably.  Juice would benefit from training classes and because she is dog friendly, she would make a great doggie companion.  She also loves cuddling and belly rubs and will always be an upbeat pal to hang out with.  If you would like to meet this sweet girl, she will be at Lucky Paws in Coronado. 



Free Pit Bull Training During the Month of October

Space is limited, sign up today


The City of Albuquerque’s Animal Welfare Department is hosting FREE Pit Bull and Pit Mix resource services including: training, owner seminars, and microchipping. The services will be offered every Saturday in October. Training will be held at North Domingo Baca Park and seminars will be held at the Multigenerational Center.


Animal Welfare’s goal is to get much-needed resources to dogs and the owners 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.
