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 Vander, a Pomeranian-Chihuahua mix. Read more about Vander below!
Breed: Pomeranian-Chihuahua mix
Weight: 11 pounds
Fur: Tan coat with gold highlights
Vander is a handsome little dog that looks like a golden fox. Vander was found by a Good Samaritan after being hit by a car. After he was treated at a local animal hospital, he was brought to the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society so he could find his forever home.
Vander has a beautiful medium length coat of varying shades of tan and gold. He has bright brown eyes and a perpetual smile on his face. Vander is a friendly boy who seems to love people. He and his kennel mate get along quite well with each other, and he seems to like the company of other dogs as well.
Vander is easy to harness and take on a walk; he strolls along at a good pace without pulling. He enjoys sniffing and exploring his surroundings, but he gets the most pleasure from spending quality time and getting lots of petting. Vander loves all kinds of physical contact – massages, belly rubs, cuddles and brushing. He will lie still for a very long time while he gets that kind of attention. See Vander getting a belly rub from a volunteer here Vander also seems to be a smart boy who knows how to sit for treats, and if coaxed, will offer his paw to shake.
Vander would make a wonderful companion to someone who wants an affectionate pet to nurture. He is looking for a safe, comfortable home where he gets a lot of love. Come meet Vander soon – he is waiting for 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 Vander.
