Adopt-a-Pet: Stewie the Labrador-husky mix
Stewie (ID# A0936674), an adoptable Labrador retriever-husky mix at the Harbor animal shelter, could certainly use a break. He's been at the shelter for about a month and, despite his gregarious personality, still doesn't have a home to show for it.
It's hard to be a large dog looking for a new owner -- Stewie has looked on as many of his smaller sheltermates have been adopted. But he has many points in his favor: He's a great age, not yet 2 years old but no longer in the floor-soiling, shoe-chewing puppy phase. He's already neutered, so he can go home with his new adoptive owner immediately. And he has a great personality, according to shelter staff member Nicky Gore-Jones.
Stewie is a "beautiful, big dog, with lots of energy and joie de vivre," Gore-Jones says, adding that he loves nothing more than being around people and going for long walks. He'd be a great fit for an energetic, outdoorsy owner looking for a new hiking partner.
Meet Stewie in person at the Harbor shelter, at 957 N. Gaffey Street in San Pedro, or call 888-4LAPET1 with his ID number for more information.
