Introducing Pluto, the pint-sized pup with a heart full of love and a spirit that's larger than life!

When Pluto first arrived, he was a bit cautious around new humans. However, he quickly discovered that these humans come with tasty snacks, and his wariness turned into excitement. Now, he jumps with joy at the sight of his friends, eagerly anticipating a fun-filled walk, but wait! Don't forget his toy, he LOVES those.

He adores sitting in laps, relishing every cuddle and petting session. Recently, he discovered the wonders of a kiddie pool and now occasionally dips his toes to cool down after a playful zoom around the yard, making him even more endearing.

Pluto has an uncanny ability to brighten even the darkest days. His infectious happiness and playful nature are contagious, lifting your spirits and putting a smile on your face. He teaches us all an invaluable lesson - not to let the little things worry us, but to embrace the joy and enthusiasm that life has to offer.

One of Pluto's greatest joys is romping and wrestling with his best doggo friend. This social interaction has shown his potential to thrive in a home with a resident dog after a successful meet and greet.

With Pluto by your side, you won't just gain a loyal companion, but also a furry therapist who understands the power of unconditional love. And that's not all! Pluto comes with loads of support from his volunteer friends, who would be happy to help you set up for success.

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!

Come meet your new best friend
