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 Taco, a male Chihuahua. Read more about Taco below!
Name: Taco ID: 8054Gender: MaleBreed: Chihuahua Age: 12 yearsWeight: 10 poundsFur: White with black markings
In recognition of National Adopt a Senior Pet Month, we would like to introduce Taco, a very sweet senior Chihuahua looking for a loving person or couple with whom to spend the rest of his life. He has adjusted to shelter life but it is not the most comfortable and ideal home for a senior dog. He is small in size, does not take up much space, and his needs are few. Just a soft comfortable bed, a loving lap, and a companion to take him out for casual strolls in the neighborhood would make him happy.
Taco is friendly and loves the company of people. He will greet you with a smile and a cute little wagging tail. He has a very calm, easy-going energy and a quiet, reserved disposition. He is not demanding, but enjoys receiving loving pets and sitting on laps. He also enjoys his walks, taking his time and exploring the world around him.
Taco is independent and doesn’t play with other dogs, but he gets along well with his younger kennel mate and the other dogs he has met and walked with to the park. Another dog in the family would be fine, as long as the dog isn’t overly active.
Taco's adoption fee is $120 and includes neuter surgery, first vaccinations, microchip, and a free wellness visit with a participating veterinarian. He is eligible for the shelter’s reduced-fee “Senior for Senior” adoption program.
If you are interested in meeting Taco 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.
