Pet of the week


FARMINGTON — Rex is a Belgian shepherd mix that has been at the Franklin County Animal Shelter for a while but has become the staff’s favorite.

Staff said that he walks well on lead, knows basic commands and appears to be house broken. He would be the perfect dog to take on a leisurely stroll and then to curl up with while either reading a good book or sitting down to watch some television, they said.

Rex also would love to say thank you to all the people and businesses that helped out with the shelter’s recent benefit dinner. For more information, stop by the shelter at 550 Industry Road or call 778-2638.
