BURBANK, CA: If you think getting a friendly "little old Chihuahua" adopted is easy, or that somebody else will surely choose him, tell that to 10 year old Valentino who's been at the city shelter for six months now. And he was featured last week on SSD using an adorable photoshoot picture, too. Nobody turned up for him! Valentino loves meeting new people and is friendly with other dogs. He's a really sweet older dog who'd love so much to join your family...but nobody has come to the shelter to offer him that. PLEASE SHARE! 💛

He would be the perfect addition into a loving family who would love a companion to relax with at the end of the day. He came into the shelter nearly 6 months ago and we would love for him to sunbathe in the comforts of a cozy loving home.
I caught him today bathing in our California warm weather and he was completely in peace and totally relaxed. He is a BIG talker so he wouldn’t be ideal for a tiny apartment. He’s a very sweet boy, but still has the heart of a puppy and loves to explore new places.
Since he is a bit older and very mellow we do expect him to do well with children, but respectful kids are a must!! The shelter has had the opportunity to take him out for events on several occasions and he has done very well each time. He loves meeting new people and being petted. He gets along with other #dogs so we suspect that he should also be fine with cats.
Overall he is a big old (pun intended) love bug who will make for the easiest pet to have given his mellow personality. The only thing we at the shelter have noticed is that he does not enjoy going into his travel crate, but can you blame him? He’d rather be on a cozy lap. Also, we are unable to transport out of the shelter. (I know that is a popular request.)" Any adopter MUST come meet and adopt Valentino in person at the shelter.
To adopt Valentino, please email Lisette at LRojo@burbankca.gov with further questions.
