Wall-e is only three months old and is full of happy puppy wiggles for anyone willing to show him some love. He is very sweet and does quite well with other dogs.
Although he is only nine pounds, he may be hesitant around dogs a lot bigger than him. He does well alone and uses puppy pads to go to the bathroom. He isn't destructive of his bed and is so excited when his foster mom comes home from work.
Wall-e does have a case of demodex mange. He takes medicine twice a day, and he is improving steadily! He should be completely better in about two to three months. Because of this condition, he has never worn a collar or harness, but should be able to right after his skin heals up.
Wall-e is definitely an inside dog. He is looking for the good life he missed out on in his first three months of life and someone who can give him the care and love he deserves, as well as see him through his current condition. When asked what she sees when she looks into Wall-e's eyes, his foster mom responded:
"Thank you for taking care of me. I am a sweet pup and will blossom. I missed out on receiving quality care for some reason. I am looking for a loving home."
Consider being the shining light and caretaker Wall-e needs to blossom.
