Lady Marmalade is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 4-year-old, 42-pound, retriever/Australian cattle dog mix.

Lady Marmalade is a shy girl. She is still getting used to her new surroundings at Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s very gentle and loving. She will do best in a quiet home where she can settle in at her own pace. Her new family will need to help boost her confidence with patience, reassurance, and positive reinforcement. Lady Marmalade will prefer to be the only dog in her home so she doesn’t have to share her human’s love. At the same time, when she’s out and about she loves other dogs. Lady Marmalade was transferred through the FOCAS program.

The $145 adoption fee for Lady Marmalade includes medical exam, vaccinations, spay, and microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to
