Meet Nacho ! This sweet boy spent the first 3 months of his life living in a chicken coop. During his time in foster, Nacho has gained confidence and discovered his love for life and adventures! Nacho enjoys the company of his four-legged foster friends – cats and dogs alike. With a proper introduction, he would happily share a home with a friendly dog. When Nacho isn’t lounging on the couch or out for hikes, you can find him fetching his favourite toys to bring back to his bed.
If Nacho sounds like the next adventure companion for you, please submit an application online or contact the shelter at 250-493-0136 for further information.
