If you and your kids, dogs and cats would love a playmate, Cinco is your boy. This cute, outgoing boy wants his humans to play with him all day. And he loves playing with his dog and kitty friends. His ideal day is when his human and furry friends are always his playmates. When his foster mom has to work instead, he can have an exasperated look on his face. So bored!

This happy, curious boy is always excited to meet new people. And he loves other dogs. On a long walk, he's seen several other dogs, sniffing them, saying hello and trying to play with them. At home, he'd also love to play with his Chihuahua housemate and their cat, but neither want to. So he'll go off and chew his toys and bones, and he may sit on his foster's lap for some petting. He's house-trained and making good progress on his crate-training, calming down and napping when it's left open.

Cinco's ideal home will be with parents who love to play and hike, and he'll love a playful dog and kitty housemate if you have one. Come meet him! He has lots of energy to share and will be so happy to become your playmate!
Come meet your new best friend
