Meet the lovely Cheechoo, as fine a canine companion as ever was. When he landed at Humane Society Silicon Valley a few months back, this 8-year-old pit bull mix was suffering from an epic flea allergy; his skin may have been in sad shape, but his sunny disposition and eternal optimism never wavered. As he healed up, he occupied his mighty brain by learning an impressive repertoire of skills in HSSV's obedience program—including excellent leash manners.
Cheechoo's a perfect gentleman who loves long walks and snuggling on the couch, especially if belly rubs are involved. He's loved by one and all at the shelter, but what he really needs is his own family, and some kind souls have even paid his adoption fees so money doesn't have to be an issue. Imagine coming home to those awesome ears. That smiling face. It could happen—get in touch!
Speaking of waived adoption fees, HSSV, in collaboration with NBC Bay Area and Telemundo, hosts Clear the Shelters on July 23. For this one-day event, there's no charge to adopt your new family member at any of HSSV's adoption centers in the East Bay. So whether it's Cheechoo or some other awesome dog you're considering as the perfect companion, here's your chance for a happy homecoming!
