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 Kudo, a German shepherd and chow mix. Read more about Kudo below!
Breed: German shepherd and chow mix
Age: 2 years
Weight: 64 pounds
Kudo is a rambunctious young chow-shepherd mix with a stunning red coat, beautiful honey-brown eyes, and the best wiggly stubby tail in town! He first came to the shelter after being found stray in October of this year. He was quickly adopted after arriving to the shelter—not surprising, given his good looks and playful charm. Unfortunately, Kudo came back to the shelter because his former family adopted him for the children to learn pet-ownership responsibilities but sadly the children could no longer commit the time to take care of young Kudo.
Despite gaining and losing what was most likely his first home, Kudo remains a frisky and silly young pup. He is a lively 2-year-old boy who loves to walk, play with squeaky toys, and spend time with his people. He is extremely friendly and affectionate with people, though it seems he would do best in a single-dog home. He is quickly learning his basic commands and would definitely appreciate getting a bit more training. He would thrive in a home with experienced and active pet parents who could share the time, care, and affection he truly deserves. After being a homeless pup for most of his young life, Kudo would love to have a family and home to call his own…just in time for the holidays!
His adoption fee is $145 and includes neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and a free wellness exam at a participating veterinarian. He 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 Kudo, please stop by any time from 10:30am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday. See our website at www.sgvhumane.org
