At about 9 years old, Mallomar, a male shepherd mix, may be considered a “senior,” but he sure doesn’t act like it. This active dog with the big toothy, tongue-hanging-out grin loves play time, as well as snuggles.
Mallomar was taken in by Friends for Life Animal Rescue from a county facility where he was found to be microchipped — but the microchip’s contact information was not up to date. So now, he hangs out at doggy daycare during the week where he enjoys the company of other dogs while waiting for someone who will give him a permanent home. The folks at Friends for Life say it’s apparent he’s had training during his lifetime and knows how to be a good house dog.
Mallomar is neutered, current on vaccinations and microchipped. If you’re interested in meeting him, contact Friends for Life, located in downtown Gilbert, at (480) 497-8296 or visit www.azfriends.org online.
And on a side note, two Friends for Life pets recently featured in the Tribune — Dovie, a 10-year-old calico cat, and Flower, a mixed breed dog — have been adopted! Congrats Dovie and Flower, and thank you to their new people who took them home.
