WASHINGTON – Meet Chalupa, the first Pet of the Week for 2014! This sweet cocker spaniel mix is as cute as a button, with a personality to match.
She loves people — her tail wags eagerly when she meets someone new — and she enjoys the company of other dogs, as well.
Chalupa arrived at the Washington Animal Rescue League with a benign mammary tumor, which has since been removed. At the mature age of 7 years, Chalupa qualifies for our Boomers’ Buddies program, which means her adoption fee will be waived for adopters age 50 or older.
And like most baby boomers, she’s got a couple of age-related complaints, including a low-grade heart murmur and mild cataracts, neither of which affect her activities or quality of life.
So if you’re looking for a small, loving canine companion who is past all of the craziness of puppyhood, but still has lots of energy and enthusiasm, stop by the League and meet Chalupa.
