Adopt a Pet
AGE: Sugar is a 7-year-old Rottie/mastiff mix who is easy to handle, sweet, mellow and enjoys hanging out with people.
PERSONALITY: She likes going for slow walks, doesn't pull on her leash, and enjoys exploring along the way. Sugar is patient, housebroken, doesn't demand lots of attention, will bond with her owner, and can be left alone, when needed.
HIGHLIGHTS: If you love large dogs and are looking for a well mannered, low-maintenance canine companion, Sugar is the sweetness you’ve been looking for. She’s getting a little stiff in her old age, but daily anti-inflammatory medication and glucosamine supplements give her a lot of relief.
AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S. Pacific Highway, between Talent and Phoenix, open 7 days a week.
COST: Sugar’s adoption fee has been pre-paid by a generous donor, and she is already licensed. Adoption includes a free wellness visit at a local veterinarian office. Sugar is spayed.
