Pawtner-in-crime to your Alladin!

Hi friends! I am Abu! I am not a monkey but an equally fun loving dog and will help you through life’s adventures! I am a 3 year old, 52 lb, neutered male Terrier mix. I was part of the Tijuana shopping cart hoarding case rescue, and you can check the story out on IG. I have been at an amazing foster home since then and mastered bathroom and leash manners. However, I do have leash reactivity and need to work on it with positive reinforcement.

I have a charming limp in my front paw which doesn’t stop me from playing but I am happier with shorter walks and pain medication. I have Arthritis in right front elbow, and take Carprofen for pain management (~$35 for months supply, price depends on market value and where purchased), and Gabapentin daily (~$25 for months supply, price depends on market value and where purchased) for anxiety spurs when my leg really hurts. I will need bloodwork on a regular basis, along with Dasuquin Chews to support joint health (~$45.00 for 3 months supply depending on market vale and where purchased). I am also receiving Cytopoint injections every 4-6 weeks to help manage my allergies.

My foster mama can vouch for the fact that I am super sweet and cuddly. I am easy going and low maintenance guy who loves to nap and snuggle. My love language is touch and I want to just snuggle all the time. Playing with other dogs get me very excited! I loved to play with my foster brother when I had one, but will also gladly cuddle on the couch and watch a movie. I haven’t met kids or cats yet.

I would do best in a house that is mellow and with not a lot of unpredictability. I am not one for long runs or hikes because of my limp but I would be an ace at napping and short walks, and Netflix and chilling. I do fine being alone and resting in my crate but would love to sleep next to you if you are home. I would be happiest as an only pet and soaker of all the attention, but social playdates would be nice too. 

My adoption fee is $400 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip. If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/
