Pets of the Week: Orlando Bleu, Valentina & Chip
Orlando Bleu and Valentina are lovebirds! Orlando Bleu is a 3 year old, 7 lb. male. He is quite exotic-looking with his coat that resembles a cheetah and his amazing Caribbean-blue eyes. This young pup really stands out in a crowd. He is quite the romantic and is not shy about his affection. He loves to cuddle! He also thrives in an active lifestyle. He is crate and house trained and ready to go to a new home today.
Valentina is a 1-year-old, female, 4 lb. Chihuahua who was rescued by animal control when they found her in the middle of a dog fight. The poor girl had been attacked! Black and white on the outside, her inner sunny disposition makes dogs big and small adore her. She is quite the flirt, but don't wait for cupid to strike; strike first and adopt Valentina! Valentina adores her foster brother, Orlando Bleu. The two would love to be placed together, but it's not a requirement.
Orlando Bleu and Valentina attends the Bill Foundation's Sunday adoption events along with most of their other available dogs at the Healthy Spot Pet Supply Store, this Sunday 11am-3 pm.
Chip is what we call the "quarterback kitty," full of confidence, eager to explore new spaces, and meet new people. Chip knows what he wants and how to get it (food and cuddles rank high on his list). Chip, who is nearly three months old, has grown up around other kittens and adult cats and while he loves them and would be happy to go home with a sibling or to a home with cats, he can also be adopted alone to a busy family with lots of people to give him the attention he craves. Chip is available for adoption through Luxe Paws, an animal organization that works with local businesses and chambers of commerce within Silverlake and its surrounds to create adoption events, spread education about the pet overpopulation crisis within LA, and match people with their perfect pet. Luxe Paws is having an adoption event at Meowdy today, Saturday August 25, 11am-8pm.
