Pet of the Week: Hueso

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Hueso, a black and white mixed breed available for adoption locally.

Here is what Hueso from Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation has to say about himself:

Hola! My name is Hueso (Spanish for “bone” — yum!). I came to Lost Dog from Puerto Rico with my mom Pink, who was my best pal, but she’s been adopted and now I’d love to have a forever home too.

I’m what you call an “all-purpose” dog — I love a good hike, especially if it means I can splash around in some water — but I’d equally love to curl up on your couch with you and bang out an entire season of Stranger Things in one sitting, with an occasional bathroom break for both of us, of course!

I’m an easy walker and love to stop to roll around in patches of grass… and maybe eat some when you’re not looking. While I love to play with dogs in playgroup, sometimes they make me nervous on walks, so I’d prefer to be your one and only love.

I have a condition called Megaesophagus (I can’t pronounce that, can you?) which means my esophagus doesn’t push food down to my stomach very well. It sounds much worse than it is! It just means I eat from a special bowl and have to wait a little bit for a walk after I eat. But I promise I’m just as happy, healthy and handsome as other dogs!

I’m a pretty perfect dog and I can’t wait for my forever home and lots of adventures filled with hikes, waterfalls, grass and maybe the occasional puppacino!
