AGE: Slate is a handsome and affectionate 2-year-old, 65 lb. mixed breed.
PERSONALITY: He is treat motivated (aren’t we all) which has made it easy to teach him basic skills, including walking nicely on a leash. He is house-trained and rides well in the car.
HIGHLIGHTS: Slate is a loving dog who becomes deeply attached to his person, which would make him a good guard dog. He loves to cuddle and snuggle, but should not be in a home with cats or small children. He is social with other dogs and plays well, and needs more interaction “about town,” to be a good “take everywhere” companion.
AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S Pacific Hwy, Phoenix. Open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon to 4 p.m. weekends.
COST: Slate’s adoption fee is $105, and includes a free 1-hour, in-home training and a wellness visit at a local veterinarian office. Slate is neutered.
