A volunteer writes: Javi was up front in his kennel ready to go – watching him figure out the depth of his kennel to the floor, and doing the math in his head as to whether he could make it was hysterical. The need to ‘go’ won out, and out came Javi, doing a little roll over as he soft landed. Yes, he’s a short, stocky and beyond adorable little guy! He’s so stocky and well built you can almost imagine that ground shaking as he pads along….so cute! His business attended to we’re off leash in a pen where he comes into my lap when I sit on the ground, purrs and snorts as I pet him, and it seemed almost rolled over for a belly rub. I found ‘the spot’ that got his back leg going (you know what I mean) and it simply adds to his cuteness. Javi has been well cared for, his coat is lush and clean, he’s social and friendly to both people and other dogs, and leaned in close as I sat to take some notes. He’s awesome, easy and sweet, ready to find his new family. Ask to meet him today.
