San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter's Pet of the Week: Affectionate and playful, 2-year-old Rex gets along well with people and other dogs

This week’s pet of the week is Rex. 

He is a 2-year-old male Briard-Giant Schnauzer Mix who loves to run and play. 

He is very good with other dogs, and has a ton of fun wrestling and playing chase. Rex is also very gentle with people, doesn’t try to knock them over and gingerly takes treats from your hand. He loves to be petted and will smile when rubbed behind his ears.

He is a long-haired dog so he will need regular grooming, but looks handsome when his hair is trimmed.

Rex is available for adoption and until July 8, his adoption fee is only $50.
