Presley, a 2-year-old Shepherd mix, is this week’s Pet of the Week. Presley has been searching for her perfect home since she arrived at PAWS when she was 6 months old and in need of training and love. She’s now ready for a home, preferably somewhere with wide open spaces. She needs to be the only pet in her home because although she loves people she is not friendly with other dogs.Even when Presley finds her perfect home without other animals, she may encounter other dogs and has become good at wearing a muzzle, which doesn’t make her a bad dog. It will simply protect her and others. Her adoption fee is $125. To find out more about Presley, call Paws of Coronado, which runs the city’s Animal Care Facility at (619) 522-7371.
