The boy, waiting to roll full steam ahead!

Hi there! My name is Locomotive, Loco for short. I am a 1-year-old, neutered male, Shepherd Mix weighing around 25 lbs. I am here because The Animal Pad rescued me from a shelter in Ensenada called Ellos Son La Razon. Currently, I am working on potty training and leash training, I just have a few accidents here and there that my foster is helping me out with. I don’t have leash training yet, but I am also working on it! Maybe you can lend a paw?

I am very shy and timid and with help from my foster mama and my doggie sibling, I have bloomed! I have even started to cuddle on the bed and it makes her so happy! My foster believes it’s because I had an abusive past getting bullied. Even though I require a lot of time and patience for me to trust you…I just want love all day every day. I’ll even whine when you stop petting me. My favorite activity is getting lots of belly rubs. But I’m also a huge sucker for treats!! I am doggo and little hooman friendly. If you’re willing to put in the time, then I am willing to put in my trust in you. Pinky Pawmise.

My perfect furever home would be a place where I have hoomans/big or small and definitely other doggos to bring out the dog I am. I adore being with other dogs! I have struggled with my past life but I would like to move on with a lot of patience and love. I will need some decompression time, but I do love fully once I trust. My adoption fee is $400 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
