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 Leroy, a corgi and Chihuahua mix. Read more about Leroy below!
Breed: Corgi and Chihuahua mix
Age: 8 years
Weight: 13 pounds
Fur: White fur with brown patches
Leroy is a sweet, mellow Chihuahua/Corgi mix. He is handsome with a short coat of white with brown patches. He can be a little shy at first, but it doesn’t take long for him to get comfortable.
Leroy is a polite boy who enjoys the company of people without being needy about it. He is easy to harness, and is a calm, happy walker, wagging his tail the entire time. He walks next to his handler without pulling.
Leroy would rather be a member of the pack than the leader. He seems to have an interest in meeting other dogs at the shelter, but would rather follow them than lead the way. Leroy is not the alpha dog in his relationships. He arrived at the shelter with another smaller dog who was clearly “top dog” between the two of them. Leroy is now sharing his kennel with another more easy-going dog, and the two of them get along very well with each other.
Leroy would make a wonderful companion for someone with a less active life style. He is not demanding and doesn’t ask for much more than a loving home where he is treated like part of the family and kept safe and comfortable. He would love to be part of a family in time to enjoy Thanksgiving and some warm turkey scraps!
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 Leroy, please stop by any time from 10:30am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday.
In celebration of “Adopt A Senior Pet Month,” his adoption fee is $39, which includes his neuter 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 Leroy. Check us out at sgvhumane.org for more information about shelter services and photos of all our wonderful adoptable pets.
Celebrate the season with our ‘Fall is for Felines’ promotion. All cats one year and older are available until November 25 for a $39 adoption fee.
