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 Disco, a corgi mix. Read more about Disco below!
Breed: Corgi Mix
Age: 13 years
Weight: 19 pounds
Fur: Short, white with large brown spots
Disco is a good-natured Corgi mix who came to the shelter as a stray with no identification. It is hard to imagine that no one is missing this sweet senior boy, but he has not been claimed.
Disco is a bit overweight at around 19 pounds, but he doesn’t let that bother him. You will find him waiting at the gate of his kennel with a smiling face and wagging tail, happy to have a visitor to greet. In spite of his chunky size, Disco enjoys going for walks. He can easily climb up and down the steps to the kennels and has a medium energy level. He is happy to take a break to roll on the grass and get his back and belly rubbed. Disco also has shown an interest in fetching and playing with toys when he has the chance. He definitely does not show signs of old age.
Disco has a calm temperament and a joyful spirit, and is friendly to both people and other dogs. He is currently sharing a kennel with another senior dog and the two of them get along quite well.
Disco is looking for a loving home to spend his golden years. His upbeat personality and mellow disposition would make him an excellent companion. Please come in to meet this special boy to see if he doesn’t win a place in your heart. His adoption fee is $120 which includes his neuter surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations and a free wellness check-up at a participating veterinarian. He is eligible for the shelter’s reduced-fee "Senior For Senior" adoption program.
If you are interested in meeting Disco or any of the other available animals at the shelter, visit the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society at 851 E. Grand Ave., San Gabriel, Calif. 91776. It is open 10:00am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday. For more information, call (626) 286-1159. See our website
