Stu News Newport is delighted to be working with the Newport Beach Animal Shelter to help get the word out in search of loving homes for pets that deserve a warm, nurturing environment and a place to call “home.”

Let’s talk about one of their ABSOLUTELY favorite girls. Meet Mika Rose. At just about 1 year and 7 months in age, this ideal, medium-to-large breed Labrador/Terrier/Bully mix is so human friendly that she’s like honey. She takes a bit to get to know new people, but she loves, loves, LOVES humans. She’s probably totally fine with dogs too, because she is very non-reactive. Her personality is not alpha. Her true self has shown shelter staff and volunteers that she is gentle and has the most fantastic manners. She’s trained and loves to give you her paw. If you’ve been looking for a family house dog that you can get to know and will stand by your side with absolute loyalty, then Mika Rose is your dog. It would probably be best if children in the household are maybe a mature 9-12 years of age and older, only because it would be easier for Mika Rose to receive clear signals from them. If you are interested in meeting a truly beautiful shelter favorite, feel free to contact the Newport Beach Animal Shelter at either 949.718.3454 or at This email address is being protected from spambots.
