Meet Camilo

Camilo / M / approx. 5 yrs / 42 lbs / Toronto

Meet Camilo! Camilo’s foster mum describes his as a curious, playful, attentive, happy, easy-going goofball who loves to cuddle. Camilo has a beautiful ear-to-ear smile and will make you laugh with his silly personality. He is a very cuddly guy when he wants to be, but he also appreciates his alone time. His favorite things to do include being outside, taking long walks with his canine foster and playing with his stuffies. The ones that squeak make him roll around like a puppy! Ears and hooves are his favorite treats and he will happily chew on them for hours in his crate or on his bed when rewarded.

With proper introductions, Camilo is generally very friendly and eager to say hi if allowed. Although he does enjoy cuddling, he also has an independent air and is not needy about seeking affections. He has done very well with his foster mom’s 13 year old niece and based on his personality, he would do well with other older, respectful kids that understand dog etiquette and can participate is his ongoing training.

He would love a fenced yard, however provided he received the exercise he needs, he could also live in a condo. With proper introductions, Camilo is also dog social and would love to have another friendly, easy going dog pal. He plays very nicely with his canine foster sister, but at times, prefers not to share his toys. He would also be fine as the only dog in the home. He is not cat tested, however given his interest in squirrels, he’d likely do best in a cat free home.

Camilo is medium energy and is doing well with a 30 min walk before and after work as well as playtime and potty breaks in between. On weekends, he often enjoys longer walks. Camilo will pull when he sees a squirrel or bird – he wants to play! - and is a bit nervous of buses and loud trucks, but otherwise he is great on the leash.

When his people go out, he is trusted with free reign of a safe room, and as long as he’s had his walk, he settles quickly. He has been left for up to 6 hours at which point his teenage foster siblings are home from school to let him out for a pee. He has come a long way since he arrived and now understands basic commands like sit, stay and come. Camilo is very smart and responds well to positive reinforcement based training. He would love a family willing to continue the work and teach him new tricks and skills. If consistent breaks are provided, Camilo is house trained however his new family should be prepared for an adjustment period while he learns a new routine.

Camilo will need to be on an limited ingredient food due to some food allergies. This can be purchased at any reputable pet food store.

To ensure Camilo and his new family are set up for success, Fetch & Releash will donate his adoption fee towards training with a positive reinforcement based trainer.
