This happy girl is a shepherd mix and looks the part. She’s a year old or a bit less, a little skittish until she gets to know someone, then is very friendly. She’s very smart, trainable, likes to walk and gets along with other dogs and older children. She will need a secure yard. All pets at the Needles Animal Shelter who haven’t already received such services are fully sponsored for vaccinations, spaying or neutering. Visit the shelter behind the aquatics center off J Street between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 8 a.m. and noon Fridays. Always check the shelter for missing pets. Call 760-326-4952.
