UPDATE: Rufus has been adopted! But there are many other available pets at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society. Visit the shelter to meet the animal who could possibly be the newest member of your family.
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 Rufus, a male American Staffordshire terrier mix. Read more about Rufus below!

Rufus is a very sweet, smart boy with a calm temperament. He loves people and enjoys being petted. He also loves to romp, play, and fetch. Rufus happily sits for treats, and has already learned the importance of walking on a leash without pulling. He has been to one social outing and was a perfect gentleman.
Rufus's adoption fee is $135, which includes a neuter surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations, and a free wellness checkup with a participating veterinarian.
If you are interested in meeting Rufus or any of the other available animals at the shelter, visit the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society at 851 E. Grand Ave., San Gabriel, Calif. 91776, Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. For more information, call (626) 286-1159.
