Nacho is a loving, 3-year-old neutered mixed-breed dog, who entered the Animal Shelter four months ago as part of a hoarding case and has had a rough start in life. He recently went into foster care to heal up from a deep cut on one of his paws and has since been thriving in a home environment. His paw is now healed and he's ready for a permanent home, proving that hard-ship cases can turn into success stories. Nacho is a sweetheart of a boy and gets along well with other dogs (small and large). Because Nacho is more confident when other dogs are around in his foster home, he will do best with another dog in his next home. He also enjoys cuddling on the couch with his person. Although Nacho can be shy with strangers, especially men, he will warm up once he gets to know you. He seems to do best with women and will often connect with them immediately. However, he has not done well with cats, so a home with cats is not recommended. Nacho has been quiet in his foster home and only barks with reason. His gentle, shy demeanor with strangers has convinced his foster family that he is not much of a guard dog. Nacho is insecure when on leash walks and can be skittish around groups of people or fast moving bikes. Therefore, if you are looking for a dog to leash walk around town, Nacho may need some training to learn how to do this successfully. Nacho has demonstrated good house manners in his foster home: he is not destructive, he is mostly housebroken and he does well when left alone in the home. Nacho is crate trained and considers the crate his safe place. He sleeps quietly all night, either in his crate or on the couch. He knows some commands including sit and heel. Given that Nacho is willing to please and is treat-motivated, he is an easy dog to train. Nacho has a medium-level of energy overall. Although he can have bursts of high energy and play, he easily settles down and relaxes in the home. Nacho should meet any other dogs in the home prior to adoption to make sure it is a good fit. If you think Nacho is the dog for you, please contact Foster Coordinator, Michelle, at 510-589-7341, for more information and to schedule a time to meet him. Adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor, you will need to pay $25 for an annual dog license, if you live in Jackson County.
