Adoptable Pet of the Week


Pink is a small, soft, white, furry Chihuahua mix who was abandoned at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, and now K-9 PALS is helping to her to find her forever home. Pink has very expressive eyes, and she loves people. She is a spayed female about 7 years old, about 8 lbs., and current on all her shots. Pink loves taking short walks every day, and she loves being a lap dog and enjoying the company of people. She also really enjoys soaking up the sun. She is very alert and learns new tricks for a small treat. She likes being in the car and will just curl up in the seat and enjoy the ride. Pink gets along with other dogs, but she would also like to be the top dog in a family, so being the only dog in the home would also be just fine with her. She might tolerate a mellow cat but probably not feisty or overly playful cats. She is eager to see the world so would love to be adopted soon so she can move out of the animal shelter and get on with her real life in the real world. Pink is just waiting for a kind and loving person, couple, or family with older kids to adopt her and give her the good life and forever home that she very much deserves.
