Lasagna is a young pup who is beginning a good life for the first time. He came to APA! from a rough first year, mostly paralyzed from a likely gunshot wound. He had never been in a house and didn't know what a house was. Now, he's recovering in a foster home and learning how wonderful it is to live in one with a caring human.

This sweet boy wants to love his new human, and is so excited to experience new things - rope toys, soft beds, trips outdoors - even getting meals. He wants to give and receive so much affection to and from his new human. He's very calmed by having his shoulders and ears scratched and his head and face gently stroked. In return, he gives so many kisses. He's also excited to have a new doggie housemate friend, playing nicely with him.

He's a playful, curious boy who would love to go on leash walks. He's still recovering from partial paralysis in his back legs, so still has to be a wobbly walker in a sling and just do backyard walks, but he's making progress. A smart boy, he's learning to obey "sit" and "stay." He is a house-trained boy who knows he's supposed to go potty outside, and is still working on training to avoid excited pees. And he's happy to rest in his crate throughout the day, staying in it peacefully when his foster is gone.

Lasagna is a loving boy who hopes for a patient parent who can continue helping him recover from his previous injuries and continue his training. And he'll love having a doggie friend to play with. Come meet him. His tail will wag and he'll want to love you right away!
Come meet your new best friend
