Negrito

Sweet, mellow, Negrito!

If you want a very mellow, relaxed, dog I am your boy!!! I am looking for a family that will love me for my quirky ears and some missing fur – but will think I’m perfect anyway!! I am loyal and warm and have a deep desire to please you.

I am a smart dog, so I would love some mental stimulation and training so I behave the way you want me to – again pleasing you which is very important to me. I am well socialized and get along great with my foster brothers and sisters. I am gentle and very low maintenance. I am already fully grown – so you know my exact size already!

A little about my history: When I was rescued I had a very bad case of sarcoptic mange and this damaged some of the cartlidge in my ears. That is why they are ragged looking. I have a spot on my hiny where I am still missing fur – I am not sure if this will grow back.

I also had another condition known as TVT or a transmissible venereal tumor. This is a sexually transmitted disease among us dogs. But now that I am neutered and have been treated with chemotherapy, this is behind me. I still need some regular checkups especially for the next year to ensure this does not return – but the prognosis for TVT in dogs is good! The hard part has been taken care of!

So you can see I had a rough start – but in spite of that, I am mellow, lovable, and I want very much to find a good home where I can be adored for the dog I have become today. I am the ultimate family dog!

If you can’t adopt me, maybe you can sponsor me while I’m still in foster care. All funding goes towards helping my foster family feed me, get my vaccines and having me spayed or neutered, as well as any transport costs when I am adopted. Thank you for reading my story and please share it with everyone you know who might be interested in making me a part of their family.
