Aaron/Largo

Meet Aaron again. The fix is in!
I’ve been in my foster home for a few days now and I’m not so spicy anymore. I’m housebroken, I know a few basic commands now and I get in the car no problem, still working on getting out, but I did it a few times already. Once I warm up to you, I really am a sweet boy and very smart according to my foster Mom. I love playing with squeaky toys and love going for walks. I’m learning that human touch with love and patience is a good thing and I think I really like it. I’m around 19lbs, 4 years old Lasha/poodle mix of beautiful, blonde reddish coat. Current on shots, micro chipped, neutered, on heart worm prevention and had a dental. In rescue we frequently wonder what negative human behavior contributed to make this dog act in certain ways. But we also know with love, kindness and patience most of these issues fade or go away completely.
Aaron is good with other dogs, and good on a leash. He does not like crates, but he doesn’t really need one. He is very receptive to learning but will need a strong, disciplined pack leader, who will continue with his obedience training classes.  He will require an experienced pet parent. He will need an experienced groomer also. Once he trusts you, he will be by your side always.  To welcome Aaron into your heart and home, please submit your application. Visit www.viprescue.org
