I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Location

San Gabriel Valley Humane Society

851 E Grand Avenue
San Gabriel , CA 91776 United States
Phone: (626) 286-1159

Name: Captain Barbosa
Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd
Age: 2 years old
Weight: 50 pounds
Fur: Black and tan

Captain Barbosa is a 2-year old handsome German Shepherd pup who is as fetching as he is inspiring. Weighing about 50 pounds, this medium-size pooch arrived to the shelter as a stray in need of medical attention with a possible broken leg. As suspected, his right hind leg was injured and unfortunately it needed to be amputated. Despite losing his right hind leg, Captain Barbosa has not lost his positive and playful outlook in life. He can run, jump and fetch tennis balls faster and better than any four-legged pooch! This rambunctious pup is lovingly know as a “tripod” and has quickly earned the love and admiration of volunteers because of his anything-is-possible attitude, despite the challenges he has faced in his young life. If you are the loving family that can give Captain Barbosa the life and home that he deserves, please come meet this special pooch!

Name: Sweetie
Gender: Male
Breed: American Staffordshire mix
Age: 5 years old
Weight: 47 pounds
Fur: Tan

Sweetie is a super fun and active four-year-old American Staffordshire mix with a gorgeous golden coat, beautiful auburn eyes and a big happy smile. At about 47 pounds, Sweetie is a compact bundle of energy who loves spending time in the sunny outdoors. Sweetie was surrendered by her prior owners because they were not able to provide the active lifestyle that she needs. Since she has been at the shelter, this intelligent and pretty girl has been a great playmate for the volunteers and has learned how to sit on command. As long as treats and human affection are involved, Sweetie would be willing to learn even more commands! This delightful girl also enjoys going out on long walks or going jogging with her human friends. Sweetie would make a great addition to an active on-the-go family who is willing to give her some training and the forever family she deserves. If you are that person, please come on by and meet Sweetie!
