About Dario

Dario A229535 Dario is a 1 year old male who came into the shelter on July 3 as a stray. Handling 8/10: Handling 7/11: Handling video: Dario needed a few extra days to rest before we could meet him. He came in with an open wound to his hip, but that’s all we know about his injury. When we walked up to his kennel Dario greeted us with a cone against the door. He was ready to come out and walked well on the leash. The dang cone was getting in the way so we temporarily took it off and what a cute boy we found in there. Dario looks like his ears have suffered some fly bites and are crusty from healing wounds. He was friendly from the start and allowed handling all over. Dario wasn’t interested in treats but would come to check out what was squeaking or when we were down on his level. He hasn’t shown us any command knowledge either but he does seem on the younger side. His hip is almost completely healed now and he is ready for a foster home. We think Dario is top notch. P.S. he doesn’t mind getting a bath either.

Wham A229884 Wham is a 1.5 year old female who came into the shelter on July 12 as a stray. Handling 7/18: Handling video: Leash test: Wham is little but mighty. And she will let everyone know she’s around by announcing her presence wherever she goes. Wham is young and bounces during leashing. She gets frustrated in her kennel and bored, which isn’t a great combination for getting a dog out easily. Once the leash is on she’s a typical puppy. Wham is energetic but calms down each minute she gets outside. Go figure, the more exercise she gets, the more relaxed she becomes. Wham will jump for attention sometimes, another typical youthful behavior. This is where the small but mighty comes in. Her short legs have hops and she likes to slam her love on us when she gets excited. Wham already knows some commands and is food motivated. She loves to chase toys and can get some serious air when she catches a ball on a high bounce. We think her athletics would continue in the water, she loves the pool. She currently just sits in to cool off and will accept some snacks while she lounges, but would be an adorable swimmer in a larger body of water. Wham allows handling all over and will give affection back. The shelter isn’t going to be her stage to shine brightest, she will need someone to take a chance on her. show less
