I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

Efren Moreno, Former Alhambra Mayor

Thank you Alhambra Source for truly informing the residents of Alhambra.

Jeff Maloney, Alhambra City Council Member

The Source has become an important source for news, public interest, and serious journalism in our community. Keep it up!

Chris Olson

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Adele Andrade Stadler, Alhambra Mayor

The Source is a great independent newspaper that celebrates the communities and is not afraid to ask the tough questions!

Cliff Bender, Vice President, Alhambra Education Foundation

Alhambra Source is the ONLY independent news source covering the events, culture and government of our city. We need it to stay informed and aware!

Meet Little Guy at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society

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 Little Guy, a Chihuahua mix. Read more about Little Guy below!
 
Name: Little Guy  
ID: 20325
Gender: Male 
Breed: Chihuahua Mix
Age: 8 years old 
Weight: 5 pounds
Fur: Tan fur 
 
Little Guy is a tiny dog with a huge personality. At less than 5 pounds, this 8 year old Chihuahua mix is definitely one of the smaller dogs at the shelter, but that does not keep him from being noticed. Little Guy was found with a severely injured leg in mid-November, and was brought to the shelter for emergency medical care.  The leg was mangled beyond treatment and had to be amputated.  
 
Little Guy spent several weeks in our clinic recovering from his injury and surgery before becoming available for adoption. He is ready now to find his forever home.
 
Little Guy has a big attitude! He doesn’t let his size keep him from trying anything, and is not slowed down by his missing leg. He is easy to harness and loves to go for walks. He loves sniffing and exploring the world, and moves around quite easily.  
 
Because he only has three legs doing the work of four, he can sometimes get tired and want to take a little break. Little Guy loves to get cuddles and belly rubs, and enjoys being held. At his size, he is the perfect lap dog.  
 
Little Guy has a lot of confidence when he meets other dogs, and doesn’t hesitate to set his boundaries and let them know he can take care of himself. While he enjoys interacting with other dogs, he can also be quite independent and able to entertain himself. And although he is eight years old, he still enjoys playing with toys in our play yard area.
 
In spite of the physical setback of losing a leg, Little Guy is quite resilient and ready to face the world with confidence and enthusiasm for life.  He deserves a home that will give him the comforts that he deserves, but will also let him live a full and active life. Little Guy is proof that good things come in small packages. Come in to meet this charming little character while you still have the chance.
 
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 Little Guy, please stop by any time from 10:30am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday.  
 
His adoption fee is $130 and includes neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and a free wellness exam at a participating veterinarian. He is eligible for the shelter’s reduced-fee “Senior For Senior” adoption program. Feel free to call us at (626) 286-1159 for more information on Little Guy.      
 
If you are interested in meeting Little Guy or any of the other wonderful pets at the shelter, visit the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society at 851 E. Grand Ave., San Gabriel, Tuesday through Sunday from 10:30am to 4:30pm. See our website at www.sgvhumane.org for information and photos of all our wonderful pets.    
 
2016 calendars are available at the shelter for a $10 donation. The photos were selected among hundreds submitted by shelter supporters. If you would like to order a 2016 calendar, you can stop by the shelter or do so through PayPal.  Go to the shelter website for more information.

We don’t have advertisers and we don’t have pay walls, but we do have bills. You read to the end of this story. That's great. But this kind of journalism will end without public support. Join us! Support the work and the democratic values it serves. Donate now!
