Meet Mr. Nugget! Nugget is available for adoption because he has elbow dysplasia. He is currently recovering from surgery on both elbows and his neuter so ideally is looking for a foster to adopt home where he can relax and recover over the next 5-6 weeks. He is currently on a joint mobility food which helps promote joint health, and should avoid high impact exercises. He may experience arthritis as he ages.
Nugget loves people! He is excited to meet new people and sometimes wants to jump up but does well with gentle reminders to stay off. He is a wiggly boy who likes to “talk” to his guests when they visit. He enjoys playing with his variety of toys including some puzzle toys. When he thinks he hasn’t gotten enough attention he can be a little demanding and bark to let you know of his displeasure but is easily redirected to another activity
He knows basic obedience and is good on a leash with a halti. At home he is trustworthy and good in his crate. He has frequently spent time with kids and enjoys their attention. He grew up with another dog in the home and has made lots of doggie friends along the way. He also travels well in the car and would love to take some road trips with his new family.
