Guero loves his humans and is very affectionate. He’d be a lap dog if allowed. He behaves if told NO when he goes where he isn’t wanted (Like laps). Gets excited for visitors and walks and food but is also content to lie on the sofa all day looking out the window. He has lived in a house since his rescue in September 2021. He’s had professional boarding with great reviews and four months of professional training but needs refreshers sometimes. He learns quickly.
Guero was found in a cardboard box in the jungle in September 2021 with horrific injuries. He had multiple surgeries and months of treatment to close his wounds of unknown source. He will always have physical scars but has overcome his emotional scars. He could easily live with a family with older kids. He’s never been around babies. Cats are NOT ok. A fenced yard is preferred.
