Adoptable Animal of the Week: Doris

on December 28, 2010

Oakland North is continuing with our new 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 Doris:

Doris is a 7-month-old Terrier puppy—but she looks like a miniature Black Labrador. She is friendly, loves attention and likes to climb up into your lap and give kisses. Doris has lots of energy, as she is still a puppy, so she would do best in a home with children over 12-years-old. She likes other dogs and would make a great addition to your family. To see more photos and a video of Doris and her friend Bambi, click here. Visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA and ask to see Doris, her identification number is 33473. The adoption fee includes spaying, microchipping, and basic shots. You can also visit

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.
