Hi, my name is Palo (you can call me Pal for short) and I am a 3 year old Husky-German Shepherd mix that weighs around 60 pounds. My foster dad tells me that all of his friends, and many strangers, tell him that I am one of the most handsome dogs they have ever seen. I am flattered! I am very friendly with all humans, large and small! I am very energetic and love to spend my time smiling, playing with toys, and eating chicken jerky. I also love to go on walks and runs, and chase birds and squirrels. I have also learned never to go potty inside. Above all, I love my human and I am a very loyal dog. Unfortunately, life has not always been easy for me. I spent some time living on the streets in Modesto before I was found by the shelter where my foster dad rescued me. I became malnourished, a bit anxious, and weary of other male dogs during my time on the streets. My foster dad has been feeding me lots of kibble, canned food, and chicken jerky, so I am healthy and fully nourished again. I am in professional training to deal with my anxiety and barking behaviors at other dogs, and I have made a lot of progress! Palo is microchipped, neutered, and completely up to date on his shots. Although he can display aggressive behaviors towards other dogs (however, during his time with his foster dad, he has never attacked or made harmful contact with another dog), he can warm up to other dogs when introduced calmly and over time. In fact, he has several pup friends that he loves to play with often. As mentioned above, he is in professional training, and he is already completely trained for an invisible fence.
