Pet of the 

Special Love: Curly 
(A448859) is a sweet 
12-year-old poodle looking 
for a forever home. This 
calm and friendly senior 
guy is a bit down on his luck. 
He came to the Pasadena 
Humane Society because 
his owner could no longer 
care for him. They report 
Curly is housebroken, likes 
lots of attention, big pillows 
and car rides. Curly is 
suffering from some health 
issues and will need further 
veterinary treatment. If 
you’d like to learn more 
about Curly, stop by and 
speak to an adoptions 
counselor today. 

 The adoption fee for dogs

information about how to 
care for your pet.
