Santiago is an affectionate, mischievous little rogue and in between kisses you’ll find him leaping up for treats and stealing bandannas from pockets–this skinny sweetheart has more bounciness per pound than Tigger himself! Of course, when he flashes that signature grin all shenanigans are instantly forgiven and it’s time to invite him onto my lap for a full-on snuggle session and boy, does he love to snuggle! Santiago’s clearly not been living the high life and I can count every rib on his lanky body, yet when I offer treats he licks them gently from my hand and for all his rough’n’tumble playfulness, he’s a sweet marshmallow of a dog at heart. He loves to hold and tug on toys and enjoys spending time with the other pups in playgroup too, wiggling his happy butt and wagging a tail already wounded at its tip from constantly swinging against the wall of his kennel. This guy is Friendly with a capital F! Found as a stray, Santiago literally ran right up to a stranger in the park and during his behavior evaluation–which naturally, he aced–he even jumped up to give the assessor some kisses. Sure, he may need a brush up on basics like ‘sit’, ‘stay’ and how to walk on a leash but what he lacks in social graces he more than makes up for with love, love and more love. Steal some super Santiago snuggles for yourself, ask to meet him at our Manhattan Care Center today!
