Xylo (pronounced "zeelo") is really loving his new lease on life and newfound freedom!
He has gained a whopping 33 lbs since Oct 21, 2014! He was about 27-28 lbs when found, he is now right at 55-60 and looking good. He has really blossomed and LOVES to play fetch and can just go and go! He absolutely LOVES chasing and fetching his kong!
Xylo is neutered and completely vetted- up to date on all vaccinations, microchipped, on flea & heartworm prevention.
This playful boy has come a long way and though still adjusting and healing from past abuse and trauma, he is learning quickly and with the right family will reach his full potential and live the great life he deserves!
He would be a GREAT country dog, he LOVES flopping around in mud puddles and getting dirty... and this boy could dig all day long if you let him. He is truly making up for lost time. He is such a sweetheart, I don't want to think about what he was forced to endure for the first 3 years of his life.
I don't think this boy has ever had a family to make him the centre of their world. I think if a family gave him that love and attention, he would be the most grateful, loyal dog on the planet. He has the sweetest, most forgiving eyes- he is still seeing everything for the first time :) He is sort of the Forrest Gump of dogs LOL he is so innocent and sweet and simple... he doesn't really know how to behave around other dogs. He is so excited that he bothers them without realizing it. We may try to see if we can budget for some training for Xylo this year to improve his social skills....
