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 Honey, a West Highland terrier mix. Read more about Honey below!
Breed: West Highland Terrier Mix
Age: 11 years
Weight: 20 pounds
Honey has a lovely white coat of soft fur and is quite striking when she has had a bath and grooming session. Honey was found as a stray on the streets in Rosemead several weeks ago. She had a microchip, but the owner has not responded to a certified letter sent on Honey’s behalf, nor come to claim her. So Honey is now available for adoption.
Honey is a very friendly girl who loves people. She will put her paws on your leg and ask for some attention. Her favorite activity is receiving pets and cuddles, and she will even pass up treats in preference of some loving. Although Honey gets along just fine with her kennel mate, she makes it clear that she would rather be in the company of people.
Honey is easy to harness and handle on the leash. She has a calm energy level, but is a good walker who seems much younger than her 11 years. She shows an interest in exploring and sniffing. She is happy to take a break and sit on the grass, just taking in the world around her, and of course, getting some pets and belly rubs.
It is obvious that Honey misses having the love and companionship of her own special person or family. She has so much affection to share, and is eagerly awaiting someone who will appreciate her faithful loyalty. It is a shame that such a lovely, beautiful dog finds herself homeless at this time of her life. Honey will touch your heart if you take the time to meet her, and will make your life richer if you can give her the home she deserves for her senior years. Honey qualifies for our "Senior for Senior" discount adoption program.
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 Honey, please stop by any time from 10:00am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday.
Her adoption fee is $130 which includes her spay surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations and a free wellness check-up at a participating veterinarian. Feel free to call us at (626) 286-1159 for more information on Honey.
