Hello, I am Valentino. I am a happy-go-lucky dog always ready for a good cuddle.
I love other dogs very much but I don’t like to be far from my beloved sister, Valentina. I like to snuggle with dogs and play gentle games. I am crate-trained and house-trained and like to sleep in my crate overnight. I am calm and quiet most of the time and like a chill environment.
I like going for walks and hanging out in the backyard on a sunny day. I can sit and come when called and like to play for short periods. My perfect family will be home most of the time.
Medical Note: Valentino tested positive for Anaplasmosis which is a tick borne disease, but he has been treated for this and we do not anticipate any issues to arise from this. Tino does have collapsed trachea, which is common in small dogs, and he can sometimes have coughing fits if he gets too excited. He has been examined by vets several times and it has been determined that he does well with cough suppressant and relaxation.
Valentina here. I am an all around great dog according to my humans. I am friendly and gentle and love to be around my family all day. I can be shy when meeting new people, but if Valentino shows me they’re ok, I jump right in.
I am house-trained and crate-trained, I happily sleep in my crate overnight. I am always a good girl while my humans are away but I do prefer them to be at home with me. I do like to play with toys for short periods, but my favourite thing to do is lounge in a sunny window watching the neighbourhood activity. I do like a good walk and behave very well while walking on my leash. I can sit and come when called and am ready to learn what my humans want to teach me.
I love to hang out in my yard, smelling the flowers and looking for the little critters that stop by. I don’t like to bark very much and am most comfortable in a quiet environment. If you’re ready for this good girl, apply to adopt me & Valentino today!
