Pet of the week: Munchies from the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society

Name: Munchies

ID: 21523

Gender: Female

Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix

Age: 10 years old

Weight: 60 pounds

Fur: Black and white coat

This lovely girl came to the shelter when she was surrendered by her previous owners because they moved to a place where dogs are not allowed. She is a darling with lively brown eyes and a black and white coat resembling a delicious mocha cream treat!  Although considered a senior dog, Munchies has plenty of pep to her step and lots of puppy energy to chase tennis balls and go for jogs around the park. Though not big in height, this lovely girl is a strapping ball of 60 pounds of love, wet kisses and doggie hugs. She just loves to love her people!

Munchies enjoys hanging out with her human friends and playing with squeaky toys. She is a great example of a dog's ability to learn new tricks at any age as she has learned her sit command and how to catch treats while sitting. See a video of Munchies in action here https://youtu.be/EDffOzNtNno

Despite losing her home at 10 years of age, Munchies hopes to find her forever home with a loving family who she can share her golden years with.
