Loco is a gorgeous little man who was recently left at the shelter with his seven siblings and mom Leona. We don’t know anything about the little family prior to arriving at the shelter, but Leona is a fantastic mom and her puppies will be lucky if they grow up to be like her.
Loco is a very playful little boy, that enjoys tumbling with his siblings – and without doubt would love a doggy friend to play with in his future home. He is estimated to be circa 3 months old now, and will probably grow to be 20 kilos as an adult (no guarantees of course! He will make a wonderful addition to most families if he is trained and supported the way a puppy should be.
As with all puppies, Loco’s future family needs to be ready for sleepless nights, pee and poo everywhere, scratched furniture, chewed shoes, long days of learning to be home alone and of course, training to walk on a lead. Right now, he is very well socialised with other dogs and cats, but more training will be needed to make sure he doesn’t develop bad habits and continues to be a happy and social dog. His future family also needs to commit to sterilising him as soon as he reaches sexual maturity – we tolerate zero breeding with our dogs and don’t agree with them battling with unnecessary hormones throughout their lives if not sterilised.
Loco is first available to leave the shelter for adoption at the beginning of July when he turns 16 weeks old, in accordance with EU law.
