Meet Potato

Add to favourites

Potato is a sweet and playful little guy who had a rough start to his young life. He will need to be in a solo dog home as he has some dog reactivity issues. Unknown with cats, and ideally no small children under 10yrs old.

He has learned a lot in his few months since leaving Mexico, but he still has some work to do. He is a clever, kind and loyal companion who enjoys playing with toys, moderately active activities such as walks and short hikes.

At the end of the day he loves to snuggle and relax with his human (if he’s allowed, he never says no to some sofa or bed snuggles). He is a quick learner, loves his toys, he’s learning to fetch and walks well on a leash. He is crate trained but is also happy to sleep with his humans. He had spent some time at a daycare too where he really enjoyed learning to socialize with other dogs at a distance for now. He can be distrustful of men; prefers women so far but with slow introductions and positive reinforcement he should adjust. Our staff can help you with that.

This sweet loving boy is looking for his forever home, a fenced yard would be ideal, and lots of love to give him as he navigates his new life. If you think Potato is your kind of boy, send in an application:

1. Submit an application:
2. Please note we may receive multiple applications for one animal. Staff will contact the first suitable applicant that matches the animal’s needs and set-up an appointment to come in for a visit!

Thank you for continuing to help animals find loving new homes! This enables us to keep caring for new animals at risk, even with limited staffing.
