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 Frederick, a Chihuahua mix. Read more about Frederick below!
Breed: Chihuahua Mix
Age: 4 years
Weight: 9 pounds
Fur: Tri-colored – White, Black and Brown
Frederick is a handsome dog, found as a stray at a local Walmart store. He is being called a Chihuahua mix, although he clearly has some other breeds in his DNA. He has a short white coat with striking black and tan markings. This good-looking boy is about 4 years old and weighs around 9 pounds. Frederick is friendly with people, and enjoys going for walks with our volunteers. He has a medium energy level and also likes to play with toys and with other dogs. He has had a variety of kennel mates during his time at the shelter, and has been compatible with all of them.
Frederick seems to be a smart boy who would benefit from some basic training classes to challenge him and make him the best dog he can be. He would love to be part of an active family that can give him regular exercise and play time, and he would enjoy having another dog as his companion and playmate. Come meet this sweet boy to see if he can be your new best buddy. His adoption fee is $130, which includes neuter surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations and a free wellness check-up at a participating veterinarian. Feel free to call us at (626) 286-1159 for more information on Frederick.
