Where's Waldo? Waiting for you. This sweet pup is available for adoption and looking for a home to call his forever. Waldo is a young male Heeler mix who is good with dogs (big and small) and indifferent towards cats. He knows basic commands: "sit," "down," and "heel." He walks great on a leash and is house and crate trained. Pssst....he has THE most fabulous ears, to boot.
Waldo is almost a year old, but is a nice balance of young pup energy with the ability to be a snuggler. Most of the time, he's just lounging around with his foster siblings or snuggling with his foster dad, but he will play with the other dogs in his foster home. Waldo is ok with older kids/teenagers and even infants, but has a fearful reaction to toddlers. Unfortunately, based on the fact that he was originally found abandoned in a home surviving on dirty diapers, we suspect that a young child or children were allowed to mistreat him, even if unintentionally. For this reason, we are recommending a home with older children or adults only.
Waldo is current on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped, and has tested heartworm negative.
If you are interested in Waldo, please fill out a Dog Adoption Application
Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish).
** Local adoptions preferred (within Greater New Orleans area and surrounding parishes). We do not ship animals, as a part of our adoption process is for the potential adopter(s) to meet the dog to assess if he/she is a match for the family.
