Pet of the Week: Mannerly German Shepherd Seeks Family in 2013
Looking for a low-maintenance, mature dog that's potty-trained and polite? At seven years old, Aries has ripened into a well-trained, affectionate gentleman that wants nothing more than a good belly rub, game of fetch or stroll through the Farmer's Market. This gentle German Shepherd mix can still go for more energetic jogs, but is also happy to relax with his person.
Aries is in kennel 48 at Austin Animal Center's Town Lake Animal Center location (1156 Cesar Chavez), and his animal ID is A631762. He is part of the shelter's Classic Cats and Canines program, which helps more mature pets find families. The program has a "Seniors Helping Seniors" partnership with AARP that waives adoption fees for adopters 50 years and older adopting pets five years and older.
Aries is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and ready to go home today. Can you help him achieve his 2013 resolution to find an adoring adopter?
