Slash is a sweet, mature guy wrapped in a cute little package.
He is an easy, undemanding pup. Slash loves nothing more than to look into your eyes for permission, then hop up in your lap for gentle pets. Slash tolerates relaxed doggy pals. Outside of that, he'd like to stay out of the tomfoolery, thank you very much! We're not sure of his feelings for cats or children. Slash's ideal home will be on the quieter side, older children (if kids), and no other pets, or a very relaxed dog friend.
Slash came to APA with a lot of missing fur due to his collar being too tight, but he is looking more and more like his handsome self every day. His waddle-for-a-walk and one tiny snaggletooth give Slash his distinctive-yet-adorable 'je ne sais quoi.'
This senior guy has seen a lot in his 12 years. He loves his humans, and loves to be loved on, but to only his special people will he reveal his frolicky side, and play bow. Want to be that family for Slash? He deserves a safe, calm and loving home to enjoy for the rest of his days.
