Meet Norma Jean 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 Thursday, we'll introduce you to a new animal looking for a home. This week's pet is Norma Jean, a Chihuahua-dachshund mix. Read more about Norma Jean below!
 
Name: Norma Jean 
ID: 19414
Gender: Female 
Breed: Chihuahua-dachshund mix
Age: 1 year
Weight: 12 pounds
Fur: Tan  
 
Norma Jean is a lovable Chihuahua-dachshund mix, about 1 year old and 12 pounds. She has a soft coat of light tan. Her ears have a little darker tan color, and flop over in the most charming way. Her front feet turn out slightly, showing her dachshund heritage, and her tail has a little curl to it.
 
If you had a dog dictionary and looked up “cuddle bug,” there would probably be a picture of Norma Jean. This little girl likes nothing better than spending some quality time in a lap. She seems to love being with people and has been friendly with everyone she has met. Norma Jean is easy to harness and she walks on a leash comfortably, as if she may have had some training, or gone on many walks before. She is attentive to her handler, and although she is interested in sniffing and observing her surroundings, she does not pull or strain at the leash.  
 
Norma Jean gets along well with her kennel mate, and with other dogs she has met during her time at the shelter. She has a playful side, and shows an interest in toys. Norma Jean recently attended an adoption event, and was on her best behavior the entire time, happily meeting new people and making friends. At the end of the day, she curled up in the lap of one of the volunteers and took a nap—it must be exhausting to be so adorable for a whole afternoon.
 
Norma Jean would make a wonderful family pet, and could fit well with any age group—she would enjoy playing with children, but would also be very satisfied to curl up in the lap of an adult for some cuddles and pets. Come and meet Norma Jean and she is sure to melt your heart. 
 
She 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 Norma Jean, please stop by any time from 10:00am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday.  
 
Her adoption fee is $130 which includes her spay 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 Norma Jean. 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 October 31 for a $39 adoption fee.  
 
You are invited to join the San Gabriel "Strut Your Mutt" dog walking team and the "Race for the Rescues" team to raise funds for shelter animals. The walk is Saturday, October 10 at Exposition Park and the race is Saturday, October 24th at the Rose Bowl.   Go to the shelter’s website at sgvhumane.org for more information and how to sign up!
