Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Rex

Posted on October 11th, 2013 by Laura Fonda

On Fridays we feature an adoptable pet from the Seattle Animal Shelter (SAS). SAS is located at 2061 15th Ave W, just north of Whole Foods, at the corner of W. Armory Way. SAS is open Wednesday – Sunday, noon-6pm.

Queen Anne View has not met any of these pets – SAS is providing us with the description, as they know them well. We encourage potential adopters to get in touch with SAS and work with them to evaluate the compatibility of your home and a new pet.


Pet of the Week – Rex

Meet Rex, an adorable 9 month old Rottweiler/Australian Shepherd mix. Rex LOVES people. He loves nothing more than to bury his head in your chest and be petted, and he’ll reward you with plenty of kisses when you pet him.

Rex is still a big puppy, and at 50 pounds is not fully grown, though he has very good manners. In the house, he is mostly housebroken, and doesn’t chew on anything besides his toys. He walks nicely on his leash, and keeps all four paws on the ground when he meets new people.

Rex also loves other dogs and would love a canine sibling that he can play with. He is a little too interested in cats to have a feline housemate, unless the cat is very dog-savvy and the introduced over time and with lots of supervision.

He will thrive in a home that will give him plenty of physical exercise and mental stimulation. Rex is about to become a teenager so enrolling in manners class will be essential. If you’d like to meet Rex, please fill out an application!

Rex 2013-10-10 3Rex (SAS #13-10079-2) is being adored in a foster. If you would like to meet him, you must submit a Dog Adoption Application to SAS. Applications are available in the Shelter lobby, or you may download the application and bring it with you to the Shelter or follow the directions to submit it via email or fax.
