Pet of the Week – Fern


Looking for a hound dog? Well, then we have the dog for you. Fern is a hound blend who is about a year old. Despite her youth, Fern is a quiet dog who enjoys going on leisurely strolls and being gently petted.

She can be a bit tentative when first meeting other dogs but once she warms up, she enjoys the company of her canine companions.

If you’d like to meet our Fern, you’ll find her at our animal care facility in Carlsbad. The shelter is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. The address is 2481 Palomar Airport Road and you can ask for Fern by using her animal ID number, A1799109.

Fern’s adoption fee is $69 and the fee includes all her current vaccinations, a microchip, spaying and one free veterinary exam. For more information, visit or call (619)767-2675.
