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 Mr. Red, a chow mix. Read more about Mr. Red below!
Name: Mr. Red
Breed: Chow Mix
Age: 6 years
Weight: 42 pounds
Fur: Reddish bronze coat
Mr. Red is a beautiful Chow mix, about 6 years old and weighing 42 pounds. His fur is the most gorgeous reddish bronze color, although he has a bit of hair loss that may have been caused by hot spots or allergies. He is getting medicated baths at the shelter, and we hope his fur will start filling in soon. In spite of this, he is a very handsome boy.
Mr. Red is a lovely, sweet dog with a very mellow temperament. He is a gentle boy who is friendly with people, and with other dogs. He will greet you when you pass by his kennel with a smile on his face and a wag of his tail.
Mr. Red is easy to harness and handle on leash, and he walks at a calm, leisurely pace. He enjoys getting out and socializing with the rest of his pack – both humans and dogs. Mr. Red is so well behaved, he was chosen to go to an adoption event at PetSmart, and he did very well meeting new people. He likes to get pets and attention from people, and will happily sit, or stand on his hind legs for a treat. And in return, he will give you a gentle kiss of thanks.
Beautiful Mr. Red deserves to find a loving family to give him a comfortable, secure home. Come in to see if Mr. Red is the companion you are looking for. He is waiting to meet you!
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 Mr. Red, please stop by any time from 10:00am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday.
His adoption fee is $135 and includes neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and a free wellness exam at a participating veterinarian. He is eligible for our reduced-fee Senior For Senior adoption program. Feel free to call us at (626) 286-1159 for more information on Mr. Red.
