Meet Nando - April 2019

Got lap? Meet Nando from San Fernando. Nando was a bit of a project when he came to the rescue. He was found in a Toronto park in the middle of winter (likely left there to be found as no one has come forward looking for him). He showed signs of longterm neglect and had some related health issues. Fast forward, he’s fine.

Nando was a little apprehensive and it took him a long time to be comfortable in new situations. Once he got his mojo back, he was unstoppable. He’s got a new confidence and loves meeting people and dogs. He loves his walks and will start spinning in circles as soon as he sees a leash. He’s very easy to walk and loves being in the car.

When Nando’s not trying to endear himself to someone with his cute weirdness, you can find him sleeping under a blanket. He likes to make be in a cave and will tunnel anywhere that looks like it might be cozy. You definitely have to watch where you sit.

Nando is a bit of a fun cop when it comes to other small dogs. He’s not used to them, so he can’t really distinguish play from something less innocuous. He'd be great as a solo dog (he doesn't care to share you) or with big dogs that he can't boss around.

He’s literally the sweetest, most loveable little dog in the world. He’s full of affection and while he loves everyone he meets, he's hyper-focused on his primary human. If you’re looking devotion, here’s you guy.

Oh, and he's a total clutz.
