Pet of the Week: Meet Coner!

E-mail Print PDF

Coner is a mature adult dog with lots of love to give. He’s affectionate and will gently ask for belly rubs. He’s quiet, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a friendly and curious dog. He enjoys meeting new people, but also knows when to be calm and collected.

He is very smart, and will quickly learn your routine and become your loving and supportive best friend. He is good with some dogs but is not a fan of others; regardless he is a lover.

Anyone interested in Coner can visit him at the McKinley County Humane Society at 1273 Balok St. in Gallup. They are open Monday-Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm.

Pet of the Week: Meet Loki!

Meet Loki!

Loki was actually adopted from the McKinley County Humane Society two years ago, but his owner recently surrendered him back to the shelter.

The shelter staff said he has no behavioral problems at all. He is a very sweet and smart dog. He loves going on walks and is great on a leash as well. When not going for a walk, he enjoys lounging around.

The shelter recommends that Loki be the only dog in your home, but if you already have a dog you are more than welcome to come to the shelter for a dog test.

Loki is up to date on all his vaccines and is neutered. His adoption fee has been reduced to only $85, and the right person could take him home that day.
