Mario is a neutered male, apricot toy Poodle, DOB June 7, 2006. He weighs 7.1 pounds.
Mario has spent his entire life in a puppy mill with only an elevated cramped, unsanitary wire cage to call home. With very minimal physical contact with people, virtually never leaving his cage, never getting any affection or caring human interaction. All he knows are the close, cramped cages that confine him day after day year after year. His spirit broken. In these mills of mass breeding happiness or well being are of no concern.
Now Mario has a chance at a new start on life, where love is needed in large amounts but so is patience, time and dedication to help him blossom into a wonderful family member. Lovingly teaching him how to trust, proper house manners, how wonderful it is to play with toys, the joy of being petted, cuddled and loved.
Mario only knows the companionship of other dogs, therefore another dog in the household would be best and a fenced yard to keep him safe.
In his foster home Mario is learning house-manners, he sleeps at night snuggled to his foster mom and has quite a personality! If Mario wants to be held or petted he kicks out his back feet almost like stomping his feet and gives a short little arf! He is certainly a character, he loves loves loves to be held in your arms too, gently pawing you if you should stop petting him.
I am only accepting pre-adopt applications at this time for Mario, for further information contact Andrea at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mario will be at Petsmart in Brighton this Saturday from noon to 4 pm to meet.
