He is a cuddly love machine and would love nothing more than a forever home with someone who is there all day so he can sit on their lap, get pet & enjoy all the other luxuries in life he so deserves. You will be richly rewarded with all the love he has to give (which is a lot!)
He loves going for 1/2 mile walks twice a day in his current foster home. He also enjoys playing fetch a few times a day with his little wool balls. He is pretty quiet most of the time but will occasionally have a senior moment and start barking (although we can’t always tell at what ; ) Cuddling him will settle him down.
Lobo is one of those awesome rescue stories that makes us love doing what we do. He came to us pretty skinny, with a large (non-cancerous) mass, a non-functioning eye and a mouth full of infection.
We took him to our vets, got him taken care of and now he is thriving! Although he is half blind and half deaf, he does a good job of getting around; he isn’t fazed when he accidentally runs into doors or people.
Lobo loves people of all ages but due to his small and somewhat fragile state, only homes with respectful children over 10 (or no kids!) will be considered.
He does good with small dogs and ignores overly friendly cats, he probably wouldn’t chase shy ones either but he does occasionally bark at the cat in his foster home. He does not do well with large dogs (30 lbs seems to be his limit) so no large dogs should reside in his forever home.
He is fine in a crate with his bed when you need to leave the house for a bit. His house training is great.
Due to the fact that he only has a few teeth he will need to be on a raw or canned diet for the rest of his life (not a big expense since he is only about 8 pounds)
Lobo's adoption fee is $250 and includes his neuter, microchip, and up-to-date basic vaccines.
The rescue is based in Eastern Washington but Lobo is currently in foster in the Seattle area.
