Tempo is a sweet boy that was found as a stray dog in Temple City. He has a beautiful tan-colored “mask” on his face in the shape of a heart. He sometimes looks a little sad. Maybe because he’d missing someone in his pre-shelter life. Tempo has a quiet demeanor and a mellow disposition.
He is calm energy dog and is a bit shy when meeting new people. Once he relaxes and gets to know you, he will settle into a lap and enjoys being held.
Tempo is easy to harness and walks well on the leash without pulling. He gets along with his kennel mate, and has been social with other dogs he has met at the shelter. Tempo needs a safe, secure, and loving home where his can adjust at his own pace. He appears to be an easygoing dog who doesn’t ask for much more than a forever home where he feels like part of the family.
Come in to meet this sweet boy to see if you are suited for each other. He will be waiting patiently to meet you. His adoption fee is $130 and includes neuter 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 Tempo.

March is Microchip Madness month. Have your pets micro chipped for only $25 on Sunday March 20th from 10 am to 4pm and Tuesday-Friday from 2-4 pm on the 22nd, 23rd 24th and 25th of March. Did you know when a pet gets lost, they are 20 times more likely to make their way back home to you when they have a microchip? When your pet is lost and is taken to a shelter or to a vet clinic, they will scan your pet. If they have a chip, they can contact you and return your pet safely and quickly to you. A pet microchip is a tiny transponder–the size of a grain of rice–that goes beneath your pet’s skin like a vaccination. The implementation is quick and easy. Just five minutes of your time could save your pet’s life.
