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 Munchies, a American Staffordshire terrier mix. Read more about Munchies below!
Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
Age: 10 years old
Weight: 60 pounds
Fur: Black and white coat
This lovely girl came to the shelter when she was surrendered by her previous owners because they moved to a place where dogs were not allowed. She is a darling with lively brown eyes and a black and white coat resembling a delicious mocha cream treat! Although considered a senior dog, Munchies has plenty of pep to her step and lots of puppy energy to chase tennis balls and go for jogs around the park. Though not big in height, she is a strapping 60 pounds of love, wet kisses and doggie hugs. She just loves to love people!
Munchies enjoys hanging out with her human friends and playing with squeaky toys. She is a great example of a dog's ability to learn new tricks at any age as she has learned her sit command and how to catch treats while sitting. See a video of Munchies in action here
Despite losing her home at 10 years of age, Munchies hopes to find a loving family to share her golden years with. If you're that special family please stop by and meet Munchies!
Her adoption fee is $145 and includes neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and a free wellness exam at a participating veterinarian. Munchies also qualifies for the “Senior for Senior Adoption Program.” Feel free to call us at (626) 286-1159 for more information.
