Come find me!

Hi, pals! My name is Waldo, and I’m a 1-year-old Shepherd mix male, weighing in at 40 pounds.  I made it all the way to TAP after being found in a pile of garbage.  Check out the IG posts about me! I’m now searching high and low for my furever family – are you the one for me?

I’m already neutered, and my health is in tip-top shape.  I’ve almost mastered potty-training, too, and I’ve been making great progress on my leash training.  I do have moderate separation anxiety, though, so I’ll need some patience and training to help me improve in that area. 

Despite my life getting off to a ruff start, I’m just a sweet goofball who loves nothing more than to go on walks, play with my toys, and snuggle! I’ve got lots of love to give, and even though I’m too big to be a lap dog, I will try my darndest to fit snugly on your lap and cuddle with you!

True to my Shepherd form, I’m a high-energy pup, so I’ll need to be in an active home.  I’d prefer to have some doggie siblings to keep me company, too, but if not, I think I would be okay on my own.  Just don’t keep me alone too long – I’ll do best in a home with lots of love and attention!  Kiddos are A-OK, but due to my tendency to jump and greet them, older ones would probably be my best bet. 

Do we sound like a match? If so, my adoption fee is $450 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/.
