Garret is a 1 and a half year old Australian Cattle Dog/Chinese Shar-Pei Mix. The Arizona Animal Welfare League describes him with the following: "Hi. My name is Garret. Staff says I am one of their favorites. I have been here a while, but only because I don't "show well" in the kennels, so no one wants to take me out :( . When someone does take me out, I am shy and can take 15 min to warm up to new people. So, here I sit.....However, at someone's home, I overhear experienced staff say that, "I am perfect." I don't chew things. I learned the dog door in like 3 minutes. I leave his cat alone, but the cat is dog savvy (silly cat.) I Love to go to the dog park, where I play very well with other dogs, and I am learning to meet new people. I would like to be the only dog at the home, however. I am house trained, and perfectly just lay on the couch after playing at the park with no issues. I am crate trained, but don't need it. I also hear them say how smart I am, as I learn quickly. I can almost walk loose leash and sit when my human stops walking."

Garret is located in Kennel B at the Arizona Animal Welfare League. His adoption fee is $125. For more information about Garret, and how to adopt him, please visit his Fan Page, or call the Arizona Animal Welfare League at 602-273-6852 Ext 116. Garret’s Animal ID number is 19016711.
