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 Rosie, a Chihuahua mix. Read more about Rosie below!
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Age: Less than 2 years
Weight: 7 pounds
Fur: Tri colored fur
Rosie has a short tri-color coat that requires very minimal grooming other than the occasional bath and brushing. She weighs about 7 pounds and is perfect “lap dog size.” She was found as a stray dog in Rosemead with no identification, and no one has come in to claim her.
While Rosie can be a little shy at first, she warms up quickly and will put her paws on your leg asking to be picked up. She will nestle in a lap quite comfortably to enjoy pets and cuddles, and she has been known to relax enough to fall asleep.
Volunteers report that Rosie is easy to harness and walk, moving forward with no pulling. She holds her white-tipped tail up high and looks like she is balancing a cotton ball on the end. Rosie is interested in sniffing and exploring, and likes meeting new people. She is happy to take a break, climb in a lap, and gently take some treats if you have any to offer her.
Rosie has calm energy and a gentle disposition, and would make a lovely addition to any home. She is not a demanding dog, and has been described by volunteers as a “sweet, cuddly charmer.” Come in to meet this pretty girl and see if her charm doesn’t make you want to take her home with you.
Her adoption fee is $130 and includes spay surgery, vaccinations, microchip and a free wellness exam at a participating veterinarian. Feel free to call us at (626) 286-1159 for more information on Rosie.
