Paolo was living with his dad following a divorce, but when he was found passed away, his mom was contacted by the Sheriff’s Office to come get him or he would be brought to the shelter. Unfortunately, Paolo's mom, who lives alone has serious medical issues and could not keep him. Paolo was about 4 lbs overweight, but has lost a few pounds and has gotten to a healthier weight.
Paolo is current on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. He is current on heartworm preventative and flea preventative, and has tested negative for heartworms.
If you are interested, please fill out a Dog Adoption Application Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish). ** Local adoptions preferred (within Greater New Orleans area and surrounding parishes). We do not ship animals, as a part of our adoption process is for the potential adopter(s) to meet the dog to assess if he/she is a match for the family.
