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 Wish, a Chihuahua mix. Read more about Wish below!
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Age: 1 1/2 years old
Weight: 10 pounds
Fur: Brown fur with black markings
Wish came to the shelter as a stray from Temple City with no identification. No one has claimed him so he is now available for adoption.
He is a sweet boy who is friendly with people and other dogs he has met during his time at the shelter. Wish has a very playful nature and enjoys playing with toys, chasing them and bringing them back to have them thrown again. He is a good-natured boy with a happy disposition, and he is interested in making new friends – both human and canine.
Wish is easy to harness and does well walking on leash. He loves exploring the world around him and lets his nose lead the way as he discovers new smells.
Wish seems to be a smart boy who is very responsive to treat training, catching on quickly to new commands. He has a lot of playful energy, typical of the young dog that he is, and he would benefit from getting regular exercise as well as some basic training to help him direct that energy in a positive direction.
Wish is looking for an active family to take him home and give him the attention he needs. Wish would probably do well having another dog as a playmate and companion. Come in to spend some time on getting to know him – he is wishing for his forever family to discover what a great little dog he is!
He currently resides at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society located at 851 E. Grand Avenue in San Gabriel. We are located off San Gabriel Blvd., north of Mission and south of Las Tunas. To arrange a “Meet and Greet” with Wish, please stop by any time from 10:30am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday.
