Pet of the Week – Midas

According to Greek mythology, anything King Midas touched turned to gold. Come visit this little Midas and you’ll think you’ve struck gold! 

Midas is a two-year-old, neutered doxie/pug blend. He weighs only 8 pounds and is as sweet as can be, very social and calm. See for yourself at the shelter in Carlsbad at 2481 Palomar Airport Road. Be sure to bring along his animal identification number, A1485628.  

His adoption fee is just $69 and this includes vaccinations, microchip, license, a free veterinary examination and a lifetime of the gold standard of unconditional love! For more information, call (619) 767-2675 or visit
