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 Dorothy, a American Staffordshire terrier. Read more about Dorothy below!
Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
Age: 6 years
Weight: 51 pounds
Fur: Blue and White
Dorothy is a blue and white, six-year old Staffy mix with the heart and soul of a guardian angel! Dorothy was found homeless wandering the streets of Rosemead with a little friend by her side. With nothing but love to give, sweet Dorothy became the best friend and protector of a little Chihuahua, now named Toto. The two girls make quite the pair and would love to stay together, if possible, but they are enjoying making new friends on their own.
Though weighing about 51 pounds, Dorothy still makes every effort to fit into one’s lap for some gentle pets…until she happily falls asleep within minutes. She truly enjoys spending time with people, be it indoors or out, and is happiest during her walks in the park. Although Dorothy enjoys and looks forward to her walks, she does not need long strenuous walks. Life on the streets was rough without a family to care for her and has taken a toll on Dorothy’s knees but it’s nothing that can’t be fixed with medical care and well deserved TLC. With such a loving and protective nature, Dorothy would make a great and loyal best friend to anyone willing to give her the forever home she so rightfully deserves!
She currently resides at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society located at 851 E. Grand Avenue in San Gabriel. We are located off San Gabriel Blvd., north of Mission and south of Las Tunas. To arrange a "Meet and Greet" with Dorothy, and perhaps Toto, please stop by any time from 10:30am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday. Her adoption fee is $145 and includes spay surgery, vaccinations, microchip and a free wellness exam at a participating veterinarian. Under the shelter’s "Adopt A Buddy" program, a second dog adopted is $39. Feel free to call us at (626) 286-1159 for more information on Dorothy.
