Aren’t I simply adorable? I used to never think so, but this super nice lady I live with keeps telling everyone, so it must be true. You see, I was abandoned and was left to fend for myself roaming the streets. You can’t imagine how hard that is for a small fellow like me. Some days, I didn’t feel good enough to bother with finding food so I was super skinny when someone came to rescue me. Fast forward to today, and I feel like a million buckaroos! It turns out, I had a heart condition. Well, when Angels took me in, they found it and they FIXED me! I don’t know how I can ever thank them enough other than to just be a perfect boy. Which I think I am doing very well based on the number of treats my foster mom gives me. The cardiologist has cleared me for adoption and I was also neutered, but I don’t want to talk about that….. So I am free to find my very own perfect family. I am a Rat Terrieri mix with maybe some Chihuahua in there. The doctors think I am around 4 years old and I weigh about 10lb. I love people and I love to snuggle right next to my people. I’m perfectly fine around other dogs and even cats. I’ve not met many children, so I’m not sure how I will respond but I like everyone else so I can’t see why a child would be any different. I would love a fenced in backyard so I can run and play and feel the breeze on my ears. I’m still working on leash training but for now, it’s not my favorite thing to do. I’m still a frisky young boy that loves to play with toys and I only chew on my deer antlers. I just want to please you because how else can I say Thank you for saving me. Will you come and meet me? Signed, Figaro p.s. – The doctors won’t know the extent of my heart damage until 1 year after my surgery date. My adoption fee includes this evaluation visit. But, everyone is very optimistic that the damage is minimal.
