Adoptable Dog of the Week - Nacho

If you lack some fun in your life, this goofy boy is more than ready to provide it! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Nacho, a 2 year old  Labrador Retriever from Salt Lake City, Utah. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, house trained and crate trained. Nacho gets along well with other dogs, loves kids (but older children are a better fit), and hasn’t been tested around cats in his foster home.

Nacho’s Tale

Nacho is like a big puppy trapped in the body of a 45-pound adult dog – he’ll gladly wiggle, jump around, and even nibble if given a chance. Of course, all of this just adds to his charm! He’s really just a silly, lovable boy that will thrive when given love and attention. Nacho adores people and will want to cuddle and snuggle whenever you get the chance – he’ll shower you with his slobbery smooches! In addition to being sweet and affectionate, Nacho is also quite smart. He is already house trained and crate trained, and walks well on a leash, too. He is the teacher’s pet in his obedience class and already has a few tricks up his sleeve, such as commands sit, watch me, and down. There’s no saying what more he could learn with the right people to guide him!

While Nacho loves people the best, it’s not only humans he gets along with. He plays beautifully with his dog friend in the foster home and generally does well with other dogs, especially those that are playful like he is. He is good with children too, but as he’s big and plays a bit rough, it’s best if the kids in his new family are 9 years or older. He hasn’t had a chance to spend some time with a cat yet, so if you have a feline, a meet would be a must!

If you’re interested in Nacho, contact the  Community Animal Welfare Society for more information. Fingers crossed!
