Should You Get A Puppy or an Adult Dog?   An Important Decision.


Razzle and Dazzle

Male and female litter mates.  They are 1 1/2 years old, exuberant, eager to please and good natured.  May be placed individually.


A family surrendered a young female Airedale Mix to the Oakdale Animal Shelter.  The shelter attendant on duty had a little trouble getting specific information from the person who brought the dog in.  She is 12-18 months old and we "think" she is spayed.  She was surrendered because she was too active for the family.  They said she is house trained, good with other dogs, cats and kids.  She does seem to know "sit" and I walked her today and she is walking good on a leash and starts to settle down once she has had a nice brisk walk.  She is quite playful and a bouncy girl and probably just needs to have a little basic training.  She seems to have a very happy-go-lucky personality. She weighs about 55 pounds.  She is a real sweetheart but needs an active family who will take some time with her.  She does seem to have a pretty good recall and doesn't want to run off if you drop the leash,


Our shelter is small and is aways crowded, so the sooner we can get her out of there the better.  The contact is Danielle at the Oakdale Animal shelter office at 209 847 5625. The shelter is open weekday.  Please note this is a "kill" facility.
