Meet Dino the Bambino! Dino is a 9-year-old boy who is simply a delight.
We were given the impression that Dino was a shy boy who would take time to warm up to us. All I can say is that isn't the case at all. Dino is a cheerful riot of a dog who made himself completely at home within an hour. He's happy, cuddly, licky and playful and totally at ease with us, and is his foster mama's little shadow, devotedly keeping her company during a recent illness. He's even kind of bossy, in that he lets all the cats he sees in the neighbourhood know that they are Not Allowed on His Property by barking at them. As you can imagine, the cats aren't terribly intimidated.
Also, Dino eats faster than any dog we've ever met before. If you leave him to it, he seems to just unhinge his jaw like a snake and inhale all his food at a gulp. We are discouraging this, but honestly can't help but be a little impressed, haha. He's quite fit, he's just kind of a frat boy!
Dino will soon have his first vet visit and we'll let you know how he's doing.
