Male, 10 years old, 13 pounds
Pupperoni is a wiggly and spunky little boy who is very excited to meet his forever people! He loves people and other dogs and shows his excitement by jumping around 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 and is a bit slow, but with encouragement excels! He is polite around other dogs, sniffing them to say hello. Pupperoni does not mind being alone, and uses that time to take refreshing naps. He loves to chew and his favorite toys are scented bone shaped ones that let him indulge in chewing as much as possible.

Pupperoni enjoys being in the company of his person and will wake out of a deep sleep if his person leaves the room. He will sit in your lap if you sit on the floor with him and gives you little endearing finger kisses that will melt your heart. Unfortunately, Pupperoni is covered in "skin tags" which gives his skin a strange texture - making him bumpy from head to toe. Our vet thinks it's a skin disease, possibly canine papilloma, which is NOT contagious, but might be irritating for Pupperoni. Pupperoni is a good natured boy, but if you accidentally touch a sore spot, he does nip a little and lets you know that is not a good place for him to be touched.

We gave him a bath and some of those tags washed right off, but others are still sensitive. We are excited for his improvement! Because of this condition, Pupperoni would do best in a home with older children and/or adults who will understand that he is a little sensitive and will be aware of this condition. Pupperoni has a heart of gold and is a low maintenance, loving dog who is ready to find his forever home!

Pupperoni came to us from San Jose Animal Care and Services.
