Kermit is a four-year old “Red” or “Irish Red” Staffordshire terrier mix with great looks and a fun loving personality that is just as silly as the other famous Kermit. He has a beautiful butterscotch-colored coat with white patches on his chest and paws and a big smile that is literally from ear to ear.
Kermit came to the shelter after officers from the San Gabriel Police Department found him tied to a fire hydrant. It is unknown how long he had been tied and abandoned in such manner but we are glad that he was first found by the officers who in turn brought him to the shelter.
Despite being abandoned this way; he still trusts and loves people. He does well on the leash, responds well to commands, and has been known at the shelter for being a “leaner” dog. This means that he really enjoys walking next to his human; very closely, as if he’s leaning on him or her.
If you are looking for a loving dog who’s looking for someone to lean on; please come on by and meet Kermit the dog! For the month of December, Kermit and all his fellow animals at San Gabriel Valley Humane Society who have been at the shelter 40 days or more are the special price of $40. Take advantage of this opportunity to make Kermit part of your family. This fee includes neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and a free wellness exam at a participating veterinarian.
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 Kermit, please stop by any time from 10:30am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday.
