Dino is a grown boy, but he still thinks he's a puppy. This sweet boy always wants to be with his humans, following them around and wanting to sit in their laps. He'll give you a goofy look and lick and nudge you to pet him.

This easy-going boy also likes going for walks with his people and does well on his leash. He likes to stop and sniff and will pull toward other dogs with his tail wagging. Back home, he gives more kisses and hopes to snuggle and sleep near or with his people. Now in foster, he's getting along well with their teenagers. He's making progress on his house-training. And he may whimper when he first goes in his crate, but then settles down there and does well while home alone.

Dino will love to be a companion in a home where he can be with his family, taking short walks and naps. Come meet this lovable boy, and see his photos on Instagram @ #melrod5.
