This is Pablo

A friendly young dog was begging food scraps and looking worse for wear when a woman found him at an isolated Auckland dog park. He was very thin and suffering hair loss due to a severe flea infestation. When she opened her car door for her own dog after their walk, the stray jumped in and wouldn't budge. She named him Pablo and contacted us. With no collar, micro-chip or neutering, we weren't surprised when nobody came looking for Pablo - we believe he was abandoned. We bathed him, had him vet checked, chipped, vaccinated, de-sexed, nails clipped etc and soon fell in love with his enthusiastic, even-tempered nature. This happy, affectionate boy is a Labrador X who the vets estimate is about three-years old. He loves walks, going to the beach, fetching sticks/balls and human company in equal measure and enjoys playing with other dogs. Having experienced starvation, he is also pretty keen on food and treats. Pablo has recovered well, his coat has grown in and he is now a healthy weight. We are looking for a home for Pablo where he will be with a human companion most of the time. Due to his energy and strength, he would be most suitable for an individual, couple or family with older children. In order to tighten up his recall and to encourage bonding with his successful applicant, a series of group dog training classes are a condition of Pablo's adoption. Pablo will be a fun, loyal and loving companion. After his ordeal, we very much look forward to placing him in a home where he will be cherished for the rest of his life.
