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 Edith, a Chihuahua mix. Read more about Edith below!
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Age: 2 years
Weight: 8 pounds
Fur: Short white and tan
Edith has a short coat of white with tan patches, and beautiful brown button eyes that are sure to win your heart. She was found as a stray in Rosemead, and had been hit by a car. She is completely healed and ready to find her forever home.
Edith is an active girl who likes to keep moving. She has a playful personality, and is very interested in toys. She does the most adorable dance, standing on her hind legs, twirling in a circle. Edith must have a little ballerina in her history. She likes to show off her dance moves, even when in her kennel by herself.
Edith is easy to harness and did very well on her first volunteer walk, moving forward at a steady pace, sniffing and exploring. She seemed to be familiar with walking on leash, and is responsive to her handler.
Edith is affectionate and friendly with people, and likes other dogs as well. She loves the lap and is generous giving kisses. Of course, she will stand on her hind legs for treats, too. She is a smart girl who would thrive with some training classes – we bet she is a quick learner.
If you would like to add a sweet, loving girl to your family, Edith would be a good choice for you. This cutie won’t last long – come in to see her soon. Her adoption fee is $130 which includes her spay surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations and a free wellness check-up at a participating veterinarian.
