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 Doug, a terrier mix. Read more about Doug below!
Breed: Terrier mix
Age: 5 years old
Weight: 10 pounds
Doug is a 5-year-old terrier mix weighing about 10 pounds. Doug came to the shelter as a stray dog found in San Gabriel. He had some extensive dental work, but is now feeling more comfortable and ready for his forever home.
Doug is a very friendly boy, social with both people and other dogs. He enjoys meeting new friends and introduces himself very politely to a new group of acquaintances. He likes attention and is happy to receive pets and cuddles. Doug also has an independent side and enjoys some freedom to move around, rather than being held. He is great at playing fetch and will bring toys back to play tug-o-war with his human playmates. He will go from person to person to share his game with each one. Doug is easy to walk and handle on leash, staying by the side of his handler as though he has had some prior experience or training with walking before.
Doug is a “talker” and makes interesting little noises when he is trying to communicate. It is like his own unique language. Why don't you come meet Doug to find out what he has to say to you?
He will probably tell you that he'd love to go home with you. His adoption fee is $130 and includes neuter 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 Doug.
The San Gabriel Valley Humane Society is located at 851 E. Grand Avenue in San Gabriel. We are off San Gabriel Blvd, north of Mission and south of Las Tunas Drive. To arrange a “Meet and Greet” with Doug, please stop by any time from 10:30am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday. See our website at www.sgvhumane.org

We will be joining animal lovers for this year's Healthy Pet Expo on Saturday, April 16th. It is located at Whittier Narrows Park in the picnic area at 750 Santa Anita Ave in South El Monte. Bring your dog or cat and take advantage of the many free services for your pet, including nail trims, spay/neuter, vet consults, giveaways and free and low cost vaccines. There will be a dog contest with prizes for the best outfit, coolest trick, and pet owner- look alike. Spend a fun day with your best friend and learn how to keep your pet healthy!
Independent journalism is a bedrock of democracy--and it's in crisis. Here at the Alhambra Source, we're committed to covering the local stories that matter most to you. We don’t have advertisers and we don’t have pay walls, but we do have bills. You read to the end of this story. That's great. But this kind of journalism will end without public support. Join us!
