Oakland North is continuing with our feature. Every Tuesday, Oakland Animal Services will spotlight an “Animal of the Week” that’s up for adoption at their facility. This week it’s Carl:
Carl is a one and a half-year-old Chihuahua mix that came to Oakland Animal Services as a stray in November. When he first came to the shelter he was shy and unsure of his surroundings but has since opened up. He absolutely loves people, is loyal and has a sweet cuddly demeanor. Carl tries his best to learn tricks but is most content learning how to get into your lap. Since he was a stray, Carl can sometimes be pushy with other dogs; but he is good friends with his current kennel mate and likes to play as long as things don’t get too rough. Because Carl doesn’t like to play rough, it would also be best if he went to a home with older children. Please consider giving him a home. For more photos of Carl, click here. Visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA and ask to see Carl. You can also go to www.oaklandanimalservices.org.
Part of the Oakland Police Department, Oakland Animal Services is both an Animal Control unit—which is in charge of the city’s public safety and animal welfare—and a shelter, which helps abused, neglected and abandoned animals within its facility.
