Don't let his name fool you. Laid back, chill and gentle as can be, "Rambo" is as ironic a name as he could be saddled with. Rambo's currently living in an APA foster home where he gets along well with the resident Chihuahua as well as the cats, giving them a sniff, then leaving them be. Rambo is truly a gentle soul who would much rather cuddle with his people than go wreak havoc in a jungle somewhere.

Rambo came to APA! malnourished with some skin issues and his expressive eyes show how grateful he is for his improved situation. As Rambo continues to put on weight and adjust to his surroundings, he's becoming a happier pup every day, his tail now wagging when before it never did. He's a mellow character through and through and as he continues to improve, we expect a more playful personality will emerge. But so far he's proven to be a low maintenance companion.

Right now what Rambo is most interested in is finding a loving home where he can continue to mend and grow into the loving companion he's meant to be. Come meet this sweet pup!
