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 Richard, a Chihuahua mix. Read more about Richard below!
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Weight: 10 pounds
Fur: Light Tan
Richard was found running loose in the streets of Alhambra. No one has claimed him. He is a 3-year-old Chihuahua mix weighing a little less than 10 pounds. He is quite a handsome boy with a short coat of light-colored tan fur that is very easy to care for.
Richard greets his visitors with a wagging tail, and he may even share a kiss or two. He likes getting pets around his head and neck, and may even roll over for a belly rub, or stick his back end up in the air for a back massage.
Richard is easy to harness and enjoys going for walks. He is easy to handle on the leash and happily interacts with people and with other dogs he meets along the way. He enjoys playing with his kennel mate, and you will find the two of them wrestling with each other when you walk by, both smiling and having a great time.
Richard is a happy boy with a gentle nature. He deserves to have a secure, loving home with a family who treats him as the special dog he is meant to be. Come in to meet him and see if his big brown eyes don’t melt your heart.
His adoption fee is $130, which includes neuter 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 Lego.

Independent journalism is a bedrock of democracy--and it's in crisis. Here at the Alhambra Source, we're committed to covering the local stories that matter most to you. 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!
