**UPDATED 2/5/2012 – Almando has been adopted into an awesome forever home! He has a new brother to bounce around with and great parents who adore him like crazy!**
Introducing, the amazingly cute & feisty fur-ball of love…Almando! This adorable lil Maltese mix weighs in at just under 7lbs and is approximately 3-6 months old. He has plenty of spunky puppy energy! He was surrendered to the shelter by his owner who could no longer care for him. But he isn’t letting that get him down! He is a happy guy who loves attention and being around people. When he isn’t taking power naps and looking ridiculously adorable, he loves to romp around and play with the other dogs in his foster home. Almando thinks they are just so cool, and he is working very hard to impress the pack. He is also working on his basic obedience and potty training and is catching on to both very quickly! While he is a fast learner and a smart little cookie, he will definitely need to continue with diligent training in his new home to help him grow into a well mannered, behaved, and adjusted dog. Almando is a curious guy and likes to investigate everything around the house, it is all very interesting to this pup! He loves playing with his squeaky toys and is learning to fetch! Although he has quite a bit of puppy power going on, he is also super content to lay in a cozy warm lap and soak up as much love as possible. Due to his petite size and frisky temperament, he would do best with children 10+. Almando is a true little love bug who deserves a patient, kind, and affectionate family to call his own and help he become the Top Dog that he was born to be!
