Did you ever know a guy who was kind of quiet and not easily noticed in a crowd, but you found yourself drawn to him because he just seems so darn good? That's Flaco. This calm, undemanding little man will win your heart with his quiet and confident manner. He's a snuggler if you invite him to be with you, and what he wants most in the world is to be with his people. At the same time, he doesn't intrude if you're busy.

House-trained, polite, rarely barking, and never grumpy, Flaco is the perfect guest in his foster home. He shows no interest in chewing on anything except food, including toys. He gets along with every living thing (though possibly not the squirrels) at his foster home - cats, dogs, kids and adults, greeting all with a tail wag. He doesn't know any tricks, but he'll come when called. Flaco has a broken pelvis which is being treated through bed rest and pain meds. He doesn't seem to notice anything is wrong, but he needs to be restricted from running, jumping or climbing while he recovers. Come and meet this quiet soul!
