Mario – Adopted


UPDATE: We’re very happy to share that Mario has found his loving forever home! Mario has lived a very tough life but now he is enjoying getting spoiled with a home to call his own! Enjoy your life Mario!

“Hi Melody: So sorry it has taken so long to write you back. It has been a very busy time for us lately. Our Mario is doing fantastic. He knows his people and loves them very much. He makes us all laugh all the time. Yet he is also a nice quiet boy too. He usually comes to work with me and sleeps and greets whoever comes in – but as soon as he enters the house – it’s game on – running and playing throughout the house. I can only say, we love him to pieces. He brings us joy and we laugh all the time. Here are some pics – I hope they come thru. Thanks much again for bringing us our little Mario – Toni & Rick”

Brief Bio: Meet Mario! Mario was abandoned at the shelter in bad shape suffering from a severe case of demodex mange, secondary skin infection, ear infection and mold. After a few month of treatment Mario is now healthy and ready for a home. Mario is a sweet boy who loves to be around people. We are looking for a home that understands the breed and will continue to give this sweet boy all the love and attention he deserves. Mario is patiently waiting!
