Meet Abra, terrier-Chihuahua mix, at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society

Alhambra Source partnered with the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society for a weekly column, "Pet of the Week." Every Thursday, we'll introduce you to a new animal looking for a home. This week's pet is Abra, a terrier-Chihuahua mix. Read more about Abra below!
 
Name: Abra
ID: 16333   
Gender: Female
Breed: Terrier-Chihuahua Mix
Age: 1 year 
Weight: 7 pounds
Fur: Black coat with striking white markings 
 
Abra is a darling terrier-Chihuahua mix girl, around a year old and weighing about seven pounds. She is a petite girl with a wiry black coat and a very striking white goatee that gives her a unique look all her own.
 
Abra and her current kennel mate, Princess, have developed a very sweet mother-daughter relationship. When they get back together after being separated, they check to be sure each other are okay. Abra seems to want to please Princess and is often seen giving her kisses.
 
Abra is very alert and doesn’t miss much going on around her. One of her favorite things to do is to try catching flying insects. Her reaction time is very quick, although we haven’t seen her catch anything yet. She is very focused and seems to be a quick learner who would benefit from some training to put her energy to good use.
 
Abra likes to go for walks, sniffing and exploring along the way, and is easy to handle on leash. Now that she has gotten over her initial shyness, she is quite friendly and loves to be with people. She enjoys pets and cuddles and is happy to sit in a lap and give kisses in return. She is also a social girl who does well with other dogs. She was a hit last weekend at the Tea for Tails/ Taste of Westfield event where she was featured in the doggie high fashion show and got to mingle with her fans.
 
Abra is looking for a safe and secure home where she can develop into the wonderful family pet she is sure to be. She would probably enjoy the company of another dog as a playmate, and would do well in an active home where she gets the exercise and attention she needs. Please come in to meet Abra and she is sure to put a smile on your face. You just might want to take her home.
 
Her adoption fee is $120 and includes spay surgery, vaccinations, microchip, and a free wellness exam at a participating veterinarian.    Feel free to call us at (626) 286-1159 for more information on Abra. If you are interested in meeting Abra or any of the other wonderful pets at the shelter, visit the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society at 851 E. Grand Ave., San Gabriel, Calif., 91776, Tuesday through Sunday. See our website for information and photos of all our wonderful pets.
