Uno is such a love bug! And despite being a medium-sized dog, he seems to think he's a 10-pound Chihuahua. If you settle on the couch, he'll ask to gently come up and either cuddle on your lap or rest his head on you. This very affectionate boy clearly wants to be close to you and be part of your family, giving you lots of kisses.

Now in foster, this calm, confident pup also loves sniffing around the backyard and especially loves playing with the water hose. Then he mostly likes to hang out in the shade next to his foster mom's chair. He also enjoys leash walks and, of course, food! Uno's mealtime looks a little different than the average dog, thanks to a condition called megaesophagus. But it's super simple: Just feed him sitting up in a chair, then give him a little throat massage after each meal. He's happy to let you, and it's pretty adorable to watch! His fosters would be happy to show you his routine.

This smart boy catches on quickly to new commands and almost always comes when called. He is also completely house-trained and excellent in his crate. He walks in, settles down and sleeps through the night.

Uno would love a home with parents who lounge on the couch with him, happily accept those many kisses he gives and then go out to explore the world with him. He would fit really well in a wide range on homes. Meet him today!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

This pup is currently located at our Town Lake Animal Center (1156 W. Cesar Chavez, but use 1200 Reserve Road for mapping purposes). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 12:00PM - 6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Go to Building B and ask to speak with a Matchmaker about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!
