Alhambra Source partnered with the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society for a weekly column, "Pet of the Week." Every week we'll introduce you to a new animal looking for a home. This week's pet is Cherish, a Chihuahua and miniature Pinscher mix. Read more about Cherish below!
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Age: 2 years old
Weight: 10 pounds
Fur: White fur with tan highlights
Cherish came to the shelter as a stray with no identification, and has gone unclaimed. She weighs about 10 pounds, and is just the right size to fit in a lap. She has a short coat of white with tan highlights, very easy to care for with minimal grooming needed. Cherish has lovely big brown eyes that will melt your heart.
Cherish seemed a bit shy and confused when she first arrived in the kennels, unsure of the new people and other dogs that are now part of her daily life.
Her kennel mate, Feather, seemed to provide some stability for Cherish, and within a few days, she started to relax and warm up. Although she is still a little timid with new people, she becomes comfortable much more quickly than she did at first. She now comes to the front of the kennel to say hello when people pass by.
Cherish is easy to harness and she walks well on the leash. She has a playful side to her personality, which comes out as she spends more time with other dogs and people. And it doesn’t take her long to look for a lap to cuddle in where she can receive some loving attention.
Cherish is looking for a forever home where she can feel secure and loved as a member of the family. This sweet girl’s personality will blossom once she knows she is cherished, and she will live up to her name. Why don’t you come in to meet Cherish and make her your best friend?
Her adoption fee is $130 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 Cherish.
