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 Aldo, a Pomeranian mix. Read more about Aldo below!
Breed: Pomeranian Mix
Age: 10 years
Weight: 14 pounds
Fur: Red coat
Aldo is a Pomeranian mix with a lovely soft red coat of medium length. If it weren’t for his “frosted face” you would never guess that he is a senior.
When Aldo first arrived at the shelter, he had severely decayed teeth and was badly in need of dental care. Unfortunately, most of his teeth couldn’t be saved, so they were pulled. He is still able to eat food that does not require a lot of chewing, and he is very good natured in spite of it.
Aldo has an easy-going personality and is friendly both with people and other dogs he has met since being at the shelter. He has a bit of an independent personality, and likes to sniff and explore on his own. He is easy to harness and handle on the leash. He favors one of his front legs when he walks with a little hitch in his step, but it does not seem to bother him.
Aldo recently went to an off-site adoption event and behaved very well while meeting new people. He was featured at the Sierra Madre Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast adoption event last weekend. He is a calm boy who just takes life as it comes.
Aldo is waiting for his forever family to find him and give him the peaceful, loving home he deserves for his senior years. Aldo is not a demanding dog; he just wants some gentle activity with his family, a shady yard to relax on a nice day, and a comfortable bed to sleep in. Aldo might just be the companion you are looking for, so come in and meet him.
His adoption fee is $130 which includes his neuter surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations and a free wellness check-up at a participating veterinarian. He is eligible for our reduced fee "Senior For Senior" adoption program.
