Pet of the Week – Rex

Rex is king of the shelter, but he’s been there for 9 months now and is looking for a new kingdom to rule. You can tell by his smile, he’d be a benevolent ruler!

Rex is a 6-year-old neutered boxer blend. He does well with other dogs but prefers children over 10 years old. If you’re looking for a companion around your castle, please consider Rex.

His adoption is free due to length of his stay. He is microchipped, up to date with vaccines and has a free veterinary examination. You can meet Rex at 2481 Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad. His animal identification number is A1222086.
