Pupperoni is a wiggly and spunky little boy who is very excited to meet his forever family! Could that be you? He loves people and jumps around out of excitement to let you know he's ready to make a new friend. Once that excitement has passed, Pupperoni is a pretty mellow guy. He enjoys short walks at a bit of a slow pace. Pupperoni does not mind being alone and uses that time to take refreshing naps. Gnawing on chew toys is one of his favorite pastimes.

Pupperoni has a heart of gold and is a loving, low-maintenance dog. He enjoys being in the company of his person. If you sit on the floor with him, he will sit in your lap and give you endearing little finger kisses that will melt your heart.

Pupperoni came to us with little bumps all over his body that are caused by a virus called canine viral papillomatosis. He is currently stable and being treated for the papillomas, which will be a lifelong therapy. Pupperoni will need to be the only dog in his forever home, not because he doesn't love other dogs, but because the virus is contagious to other pups. This virus is not contagious to people.

Pupperoni is a good-natured boy, but if you accidentally touch a sore spot, he does give an ever so slight nip to let you know that is not a good place for him to be touched.

Pupperoni came to us from San Jose Animal Care and Services after being found as a stray.
