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 Grover, a American Staffordshire terrier mix. Read more about Grover below!
Breed: American Staffordshire terrier mix
Age: 2 1/2 years old
Weight: 62 pounds
Fur: Toffee coat with white highlights
Grover came to the shelter when he was surrendered by his previous owners because their living arrangements no longer allowed them to keep him. Despite this loss, he remains a loving happy-go-lucky boy.
Grover has great looks to match his very athletic body and personality. He has gorgeous bright brown eyes and a cute pair of puppy-sized bouncy ears. He enjoys walks, jogs, tennis balls, squeaky toys and goofing off with people.
Grover can be described as "the air Jordan of dogs!" He is very athletic and talented at jumping high up in the air. He can catch toys and treats mid-air and he would make an excellent Frisbee champion! Grover would thrive with an active family who can let him show off his athletic skills and even teach him many more skills, sports, or commands. He has learned his "sit" and "catch" commands rather quickly and is definitely eager to learn more; as long as love and treats are involved.
If you are an active and adventurous family that would like to share many adventures with Grover, please stop by to meet this handsome guy. He is definitely bound to make you smile! His adoption fee is $145 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 Grover.
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 Grover, please stop by any time from 10:30am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday. See our website at www.sgvhumane.org

Have your pets micro chipped for only $25 on the 24th and 25th of March from 2-4 pm. Did you know when a pet gets lost, they are 20 times more likely to make their way back home to you when they have a microchip? When your pet is lost and is taken to a shelter or to a vet clinic, they will scan your pet. If they have a chip, they can contact you and return your pet safely and quickly to you. A pet microchip is a tiny transponder–the size of a grain of rice–that goes beneath your pet’s skin like a vaccination. It is quick and easy. Just five minutes of your time could save your pet’s life.
