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 Courtney, a Chihuahua mix. Read more about Courtney below!
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Age: 11 years old
Weight: 9 pounds
When you first meet Courtney, you might be reminded of a beautiful deer. Her slender body, long legs, expressive ears, and delicate movements are all very doe-like. This lovely girl is a white Chihuahua mix who found herself at the shelter after being struck by a car. She was treated for her injuries, which resulted in part of her tail being amputated. She is doing well now, and is ready for a loving home.
Courtney is the perfect size to sit comfortably on a lap where she can feel loved and share some affection. She is friendly with people and will come over to put her paws on your leg, asking for some petting. She has a mellow personality and calm energy level.
Courtney is easy to harness and walk on leash, although she is a bit cautious and pauses when she is unsure of her path or strange noises and activity. She may remember her close call with a vehicle, and is just trying to be safe. Courtney needs an adopter who can patiently offer her the security she seeks.
Courtney is a dainty, gentle girl who would do best in a quiet home where she does not have to worry about her safety. If you are looking for a loving companion to share your lap, please consider meeting sweet Courtney. 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 Courtney. This sweet girl also qualifies for our “Senior for Senior" adoption program.
