Valcor Has Been Adopted!

Written by: Zach

Meet Valcor, a 2-4 year-old, Poodle/terrier mix.  He is microchipped, neutered, vaccinated, as well as stupendous. Valcor (who got his name because of his uncanny resemblance to the flying dog from “ Never-ending Story”) is a stray who came to us via the Tehachapi Vet Hospital.  He came in very dirty, matted and sporting some serious dreadlocks.  The awesome staff at the Pet Lodge hooked him up with the Presidential Spa package and boy, what a difference!!!  Valcor is downright studly now and I think he knows it.  He struts around as though he is God’s gift to female doggies.  He does very well with other doggies, as well as children, and would make an excellent family dog.  We also suspect that, because of his poodle DNA, he is hypo-allergenic or at least doesn’t shed.  While Valcor may not fly and doesn’t possess any magical powers (that we know of), he can certainly make some lucky family very happy.

If you are interested in adopting Valcor, please contact Zach at 661-972-3852 or 661-821-1327.

    Awww…such a dear.

  2. My take on this topic is simple. If it weren’t for my dog I would have no reason to live. We’ve been together every day since she was 12 weeks old (she’s almost 5) and I couldn’t imagine just leaving her; or for that matter being without her.
