Meet Valentino!!! This boy was saved from the rags and went to the riches on Valentine's Day. You can see there is a picture of this poor baby on a chain with a pad lock. He had no shelter, and just sat out and waited for someone to help him. He sat through ice storms, snow, rain, heat and so on. One of our awesome team members down in Mississippi saw him and offered the people who had money to save this handsome loving guy. We saved him on Valentine's Day, so that's why we named him Valentino. This boy is full of life now with tons of energy. He loves to play and would do best with a fenced yard. He will want a very active family who will take him to explore the world as he never got to see that before. He loves playing with other dogs and kids. We recommend older kids, just because he is a big ham who does not know his size. He is a goofy loving boy who loves his toys. He is very treat motivated, so a obeidance class for him would not be a bad idea. This way he can learn some commands. Valentino cannot wait to meet his forever family who will give him the life he truly deserves. Living inside a home, cuddled up on the couch and getting tons of love and cuddles. He is READY!!!!!
