Rowan is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 9-year-old, 50-pound female golden retriever mix.

While she acts much younger, Rowan is technically a senior dog. Her previous family says she is very well-behaved in her home. She’s happy just hanging out indoors or sunning herself in the yard. At the shelter, her best buddy and playmate is a four-month-old puppy. She gets along great with most dogs, but she can be selective when she’s out for a walk and sees other dogs. Her new family will want to give her lots of positive reinforcement so she knows everything is okay. Rowan needs a loving home with a family that will lavish her with love and affection.

The $75 adoption fee for Rowan includes medical exams, vaccinations, spay, and registered microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org. Kennels and Cattery open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day but Tuesday.
