PAPÁ – Terrier Mix / 1 year / 7kg / M-Neutered

Papa is a little bundle of fun, looking for his forever home with another dog, who is ideally also a bundle of fun! He loves everything with enthusiasm: his crate, not using his crate, walks, chilling, playing, toys – whatever it is, he is game! While he may be higher energy in bursts, he has no problem hanging around watching sportsing on TV.

And while Papa (nicknamed Paolo by his foster mama, as she feels a bit odd talking to Papa in public) is a bundled of fun, he also has a sensitive side. He loves his routine and consistency and can be spooked by new or loud things. We are asking for kid-free for him as he may jump up, and he doesn’t appreciate kids just being kids.

He’s still young and is learning about housetraining and manners, but he’s a quick learner and wants to make you happy, and his success rate accident free is high! He responds really well to encouragement and praise from his people. He loves to be in the house and is learning all about going for walks with his foster siblings. He has learned how awesome toys and games are (fetch, please!) and thinks they’re pretty great.

While Papa did pass his cat test in Mexico, he does have prey drive so we suggest he live cat- and critter-free.
