Shelter Dogs of the Week

Your new best friend could be waiting to meet you at your local animal shelter right now and hoping you’ll give him or her a chance to win you over. Like Rex, a purebred German Shepherd who was surrendered to the Mason County Animal Shelter when his family moved away. Rex is a handsome 4-year-old who’s already neutered. He’s been vaccinated, dewormed, and had his nails trimmed. Rex knows basic commands like sit and lay down and he’s approximately 75 pounds. Rex would do better with a family that is experienced with the breed, and he should be introduced to other dogs slowly. Rex is super sweet natured and all he wants is a family of his own to love and protect.
