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 Squiggy, a terrier mix. Read more about Squiggy below!
Breed: Terrier Mix
Age: 2 years
Weight: 15 pounds
Fur: Short black and tan
Squiggy has a wiry medium length coat of black with tan highlights. He came to the shelter as a stray with no identification, and has not been claimed.
Squiggy has a calm energy level and a mellow disposition. He is a friendly boy who is very fond of people and loves getting pets and attention. He is perfectly content to lie down next to his person, or maybe even share a lap. Squiggy is a world-class snuggler.
Squiggy is easy to harness and he walks well on leash and is pleased to sniff and explore the world in a relaxed manner. He is happy to take a break and lie on the grass next to his walker, especially if there is some attention involved—maybe some treats, or even better, a belly rub or back massage.
Squiggy appears to enjoy the company of other dogs, especially if they have the same calm energy that he has. He is a bit independent, and quite happy on his own, but he and his kennel mate get along well and have formed a harmonious relationship with each other.
Squiggy is looking for a forever home where he is part of the family, sharing in daily activities. This happy, friendly boy has a lot of affection to give in return for a loving, secure home. He might do well with another compatible dog in the household, but he could also be quite content as the only dog. If you think Squiggy might be the right new best friend for you, please come in and meet him.
His adoption fee is $120 which includes his neuter surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations and a free wellness check-up at a participating veterinarian.
If you are interested in meeting Squiggy or any of the other available animals at the shelter, visit the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society at 851 E. Grand Ave., San Gabriel. It is open 10:00am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday. For more information, call (626) 286-1159. See our website at www.sgvhumane.org for information and photos of all their wonderful pets.
