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 Elsa, American Staffordshire terrier mix. Read more about Elsa below!
Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
Age: 1 year
Weight: 44 pounds
Fur: Blue fur
Elsa is a one-year-old Staffordshire mix pup who came to the shelter in October of this year after being scooped up by the shelter's humane officer from the streets of Rosemead. This pretty petite "blue" Staffy girl has the silliest pair of half-way-up-ears to match her silly and outgoing personality. Weighing about 44 pounds, Elsa can be carried like a baby no matter the size of the lap or the arms. But what she loves more than being cuddled is to be out-and-about living her puppy life to the fullest. She loved being the center of attention happily dressed up in her red Christmas outfit for her holiday photos!
Elsa definitely embodies all the fun, energy, and goofiness a Disney princess would have…and then some! Being a one-year-old pup, she has a lot of wiggly and bouncy energy to share with her human companions on walks, runs, hikes, and anything active that can keep her entertained. She is also a pretty smart girl who is quickly learning her basic commands and would benefit from living in an active environment with additional training and consistent exercise.
If you would like to give this lively little princess a fairy tale ending for the holidays, please consider adopting Elsa and provide her with the forever loving home she so deserves!
Her adoption fee is $145 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 Elsa. If you are interested in meeting Elsa or any of the other wonderful pets at the shelter, visit the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society at 851 E. Grand Ave., San Gabriel, Tuesday through Sunday from 10:30am to 4:30pm. See our website at www.sgvhumane.org
for information and photos of all our wonderful pets.
Shelter supporters are encouraged to visit the website to read the amazing story of Hoppy told by his rescuer in his blog. This three-legged Chihuahua now has a second chance for a happy life after a terrible accident left him alone and helpless trying to survive on the busy city streets.
To celebrate the "25 Days of Xmas," all cats are available for the special adoption fee of $25 that includes spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip, and a free wellness exam at a participating veterinarian.
2016 calendars are available at the shelter for a $10 donation. The photos were selected among hundreds submitted by shelter supporters. They make great holiday gifts for the animal lovers on your list! If you would like to order a 2016 calendar, you can stop by the shelter or do so online through Paypal. Go to the shelter website for more information.
