Meet Puppers, a Chihuahua mix, 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 Puppers, a Chihuahua mix. Read more about Puppers below!
 
Name:  Puppers  
ID: 16621   
Gender: Male
Breed: Chihuahua Mix       
Age: 15 years 
Weight: 14 pounds
Fur: Black coat   
 
Puppers is a senior Chihuahua mix, around 15 years old, who was surrendered to the shelter by an owner who could no longer care for him.  
 
It’s always difficult to see a dog get surrendered, but especially an older dog that has fewer chances to get adopted. Puppers was very lost and confused his first few days at the shelter, but gradually he became used to the daily routine, and got accustomed to the staff and volunteers who interact with him each day. He now greets visitors with a smile and a wiggle where his tail ought to be. At some point in his life, Puppers lost his tail, but he can still express his happiness with that wiggle.
 
Puppers likes people as well as other dogs, and he gets along well with his kennel mate. Puppers is easy to harness and handle on leash, and he enjoys going for walks.  He likes to keep moving on his walks, and has more energy than would be expected in a dog of his age. If he didn’t have a few gray hairs on his face, he could easily pass for a much younger gentleman.
 
Puppers has an easy-going, mellow disposition, and likes getting pets and attention from people.  He is also fond of treats and he appears to be carrying a few extra pounds because of that. As much as he enjoys walking, he should be back to his ideal weight before long.
 
If you can find a place in your heart and your home for this sweet senior boy, he would happily be your new best friend. Senior dogs do not ask for much more than a secure and comfortable home to spend their Golden Years, and they have a lot of love to give in return. Puppers qualifies for our "Senior for Senior" discount program.
 
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 Puppers, please stop by any time from 10:00am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday.  
 
Pupper’s adoption fee is $120. This includes his neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip, and a free wellness exam at a participating veterinarian. He is also eligible for the shelter’s reduced-fee "Senior For Senior" adoption program. 
 
If you are interested in meeting Puppers or any of the other wonderful pets at the shelter, visit the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society at 851 E. Grand Ave., San Gabriel, Calif., 91776, Tuesday through Sunday.  For more information, call (626) 286-1159.  See our website at www.sgvhumane.org for information and photos of all our wonderful pets and information on the upcoming Tea For Tails/Taste of Westfield.   At the event, meet animal lovers, Warren Eckstein and Garth Kemp, enjoy food and fashion and gifts from your favorite mall businesses, and support the mission of the shelter in "Putting People and Pets Together."
