Adopt-a-Pet: Tucson the chow chow mix
Poor Tucson (ID# A1044005) found himself unceremoniously dropped at the Harbor animal shelter in San Pedro at age 12.
Tucson, a chow chow mix, had "probably been a loving, loyal dog for all of his 12 years and never expected to be discarded," says shelter staff member Nicky Gore-Jones.
Gore-Jones describes Tucson as "an elegant gentleman," armed with a lot of charm, excellent manners and a sweet disposition. He's been at the shelter since early July, and with many new animals coming in every day and space tight, time is quickly becoming his enemy.
Tucson is medium-sized, well-behaved and clearly well past the young-puppy naughtiness phase. Meet him in person at the Harbor shelter, at 957 N. Gaffey St. in San Pedro, or call either (310) 548-2632 or 888-4LAPET1 with his ID number for more information.
