Hi Potential Adopters,
❤️My name is Aldo and I'm approx. 2-3 years old, and I'm told that I'm a pretty mellow boy!! I have been at the shelter since Nov 2019, I just don't understand why nobody has picked me yet. I'm a very good boy!! I’m just the right size too
My volunteer friend took me out on an adventure to give me a break from the shelter, and the stressful environment. Let me tell you about our day together.
My volunteer friend picked me and I jumped right into the car. I'm told I ride very well in the car. I enjoy looking out the window, dreaming that one day I will have my own family that takes me for rides. We arrived at our first stop, we met several other volunteers with other shelter dogs for a nice long hike. I was so excited I sniffed the bushes, made friends with so many humans, they came up to meet me, gave me lots of love and said I'm a mellow, sweet handsome boy. After visiting with several people, my other dog buddies and I went off to hike the mountain, and it was so cool. I was climbing up on rocks, I had so much fun. I didn't react to other dogs at all, we just all were enjoying being out of the shelter. After a few hours it was time to go and get cheeeburgers, I couldn't wait.
Off to Burger King where I got to eat a few plain cheeseburgers, they were so yummy, plus I got to have an ice cream cone, and that was really yummy...… then off to our next stop.....
❤️My friend took me to a restaurant where we got to sit on an outside patio, she met her parents there, and we all had lunch together. So many people where coming up to me saying how handsome I was, petting me, taking my photo, and they couldn't believe how well behaved I was and mellow. I never begged for food. I would sit politely and wait for a treat. I take food and treats very gently. While my friend ate her lunch I just sat next to her chair. I was a very well mannered boy!!
Our last stop for the day was PetSmart.. That was a very exciting store. I saw fish, and smelt all the dog food bags, and I loved smelling all the different bones. The toy isle was exciting. I had a smile on my face with my tail wagging really fast. I had a great time in that store. My volunteer friend bought me a bully stick for when I go back to my little kennel at the shelter.
❤️❤️I had such a great time with my friend. I'm really hoping I find a very loving family that I can love. I would love to have my own home with a yard, and just cuddle up with you. I loved everyone people and kids.
If you would like to meet me you will need my ID# here it is A4344007
If you have other dogs at home please bring them in so we can have a dog intro to make sure we all get along. We do not know how Aldo is with little dogs or cats.
