Canyon County Pet of the Week: Gavin the Dalmatian mix

December 10, 2013 

Gavin, 1, is a male Dalmatian mix that weighs 53 pounds. Gavin knows sit, stay, come, down and fetch. He may be mixed with a pointer of some sort as he will point at birds. He knows "uh huh" as a corrective word and OK as a release word. He is house- and crate-trained, although he needs a little encouragement getting into the crate, once he is inside, he is quiet as a mouse. No kitties for Gavin, please.

Gavin is in kennel number 20 in dog adoptions at the Canyon County Animal Shelter , 5801 Graye Lane in Caldwell. The hours of operation are Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. For more information on our other adoptable pets, please visit our website at
