Meet Uno! This sweet pup is seemingly an all-rounder. Whether you want to spend the day Netflix and chillin' or going on an outdoor adventure, Uno will be by your side every step of the way. He loves meeting new people and is very polite about his manners. In a family or with a single loving owner, this boy can't wait to spend time with you!

Uno recently began heartworm treatment and has some weight to gain, but doesn't let that stop him from exploring (even though he needs to take things easy for now). Just at the sound of his leash, he wags his tail and eagerly awaits to be taken for a walk. He will walk backwards in front of you, staring up with his endearing hazel eyes. Uno is generally good on leash although he can pull a bit to begin with before quickly calming down. This behavior is the perfect way to describe this little guy's personality: nothing extreme and a CONSTANTLY wagging tail! He is adaptable and willing to go anywhere and do anything as long as you're with him.

Once inside, Uno appears to be crate and potty trained. He is super careful and will not break, chew on, or destroy anything. Since he doesn't really bark or make much noise, he would even be perfect in an apartment as long as he can get outside during the day. When left alone, he will whine a little and then settle down to nap. If you're with him, he will happily fall asleep in your lap within minutes. Ideally, Uno would prefer a family household with multiple people to give him attention and access to a yard or other outdoor area. He seems interested in other dogs but would have to meet a potential play-buddy in person.

As of now, Uno does not know commands and doesn't quite know what to do with a toy. His foster is working with him on these skills! As Uno's heartworm improves with treatment, he will eventually be able to go on long walks/runs without wearing down.

Overall Uno is a wonderful dog and would make any willing person or family very happy for years to come. Come and say hi to this good boy!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
