Hamlet is a 4-year-old male Lab mix. In spite of his Shakespearean name, this handsome devil is anything but a tragedy. His book of tricks includes sit, shake, and lie down. He loves to be petted, especially on the tummy, and enjoys giving kisses. He's good with most other dogs and walks well on a leash.

Stop in and meet Hamlet and the many other adoptable pets at the Hawk Creek Animal Shelter, 250 28th St. S.W., Willmar. Shelter hours are noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
