UPDATE (Dec 15) : Casanova is with his awesome Foster Mom -- nothing life threatening. This little guy needs an understanding person who is ready to work through toilet training -- it may never be perfect. All this little guy wants for Christmas is a Forever Home.

UPDATE: Casanova's adoption is on hold. He has been at the Vet for the past few weeks. He is improving and we hope that he will soon be ready for his new home.

Looking for a friend?  I could sure use one right about now.  I am an 8.5-year-old, Maltese mix who up until I arrived at Animatch hasn’t had much of a life.  I was in a place with many dogs – we were too many dogs and the puppies that were born were sold.  I, along with a few others, were dirty, matted, and very untrusting when we arrived at Animatch.  

If you adopt me, you will find that eventually the fear diminishes and trust grows – I just can’t tell you how long it will take.  Adopting one of us means that you must not have unreasonable expectations and you will be happy with whatever I have to give in return – be it a lot of affection and doggy kisses or just having the pleasure of knowing that I enjoy a soft bed and getting outside for fresh air.  I’m counting on you to help me overcome past experiences and lack of basic care.  

Everything is different and new; often I am overwhelmed and adjusting to this new world is a challenge.  It would help a great deal if you have another dog to help me get acclimated to home life.  You will definitely have to work on toilet training with me – for a while, a belly band might become your new best friend!  What’s more, trying to walk with a leash attached to my harness is a whole new experience; you must be patient.  I must learn not to fear you in order to move ahead.  

I have made tremendous progress since I arrived at Animatch and deep in my heart I know it’s only going to get better.  If you have another well-balanced dog in the family I think that would really help.  Are you ready to give me a chance at a first real home?  I know I am a senior but wouldn’t it be great if you were the one to make my senior years my best ones.  Please fill in an Adoption Form and ask for Casanova., and to give me lots of love and affection
