My story

I am a fun loving guy and my foster mom says I am the most mature of all of my littermates. I enjoy my own quiet space to nap, but I love a good game of fetch with a ball. This is one thing my foster mom and I enjoy during our quiet time. I don't always bring it back, but I do enjoy the thrill of being able to run and go get it, but mom says I am getting much better. I enjoy exploring my outdoor space and finding a nice cool spot in a dirt hole in the shade. I get super excited to see my foster humans, especially when it's food and treat time... bedtime cookies are my favorite way to take a nap. I also enjoy romping around with the other dogs in the house. I am a pretty independent boy but my mom says that I still have a lot of experiences to learn about in the world, and I am a little shy as we are starting to discover the world. I enjoy a nice chew on a bone and my toys, but I also like to have a nice quiet rub down from my foster mom.

More about this rescue

People’s Anti Cruelty Association / Albuquerque Animal Rescue (PACA), a No-Kill rescue group, was founded in 1973. Our main mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehouse homeless dogs and cats. PACA has no shelter facility and relies on an organized network of foster parents who graciously take animals into their homes and hearts until permanent homes are found.
