Splash-adoption pending

6 mo. old, male

Meet our lil guy, Splash!  Splash is almost 6 months old and weighs about 16 pounds.  This lil guy has been through a lot.  He was dumped at the shelter with his littermates and we scooped them up right away! Everyone fell in love with Splash as he is a total love bug who just wants to curl up in your lap and is just the right size to do so.  He then became sick with a condition called HOD (Hypertrophic osteodystrophy).  This is a condition that can affect puppies until they are 8 - 10 months old.  The good news is it is usually a self-limiting condition with no permanent side-effects, meaning puppies simply outgrow it.  


Splash has been spending time in his foster home and LOVES the company of other dogs to play with and often gets the zoomies.  He is also just fine with the resident cat and also young children.  He is house trained and crate trained and walks really well on leash.  Splash would love to go to his forever home as a foster to adopt until he is neutered.  Splash would love a home that will take him on walks and adventures.  Another pup in the home would be just fine so long as it is a calmer pup who can play with him and then chill out together.  He is a wonderful wonderful boy who has had some special needs early in life but we know he has a great life ahead of him!


Fun fact -- we did a DNA test on our fun-loving boy and he is 79% Golden Retriever! His HOD condition can cause dwarfism in dogs so he truly is a pocket Golden.  He deserves the best home ever.  Do you have room in your heart and your lap for a li'l guy like Splash?
