Pumbaa is a silly little man that loves to play outside. He enjoys ear scratches and lounging around his hoomans. His previous family consisted of 3 adults and 6 children of various ages. They noted that he is a good loyal dog and knows how to protect his pack. He lived in an apartment/condo situation that had access to a yard. He's been known to avoid other dogs and cats inside the home. From his previous notes, observation with his previous family and foster, we believe he has potential to be properly introduced to and eventually live with children, other mellow and calm pets.

Our shy man prefers a calm environment and doesn't like sudden and loud changes around him. He has crate experience in his previous home. Pumbaa loves playing with squeaky toys (lamb chops) and trading sits for treats. He was used to 3 walks a day and is considered a medium energy dog. He is a playgroup rockstar here at APA! and has doggie pals. Talk to a matchmaker today to meet this polite gentleman.


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!
