Hiya. I'm Rigatoni (Toni), a big, gentle boy. My mother, Mamma Mia, and my 5 siblings came into rescue after being surrendered to an Animal Care Facility. Turns out that DDRTX was our last hope of leaving that shelter, so thank goodness they stepped up for us! Our condition when we were surrendered to the Facility was pretty poor: covered in fleas, sores, and swollen with parasites, we needed a lot of medical intervention. DDRTX has been addressing all of our medical needs and we are quickly healing from our physical and mental traumas. I'm one of the sweetest boys in my family, I love gentle attention! I'm a little more shy than some of the others, but I get past it quickly (especially with treats) and I'm making huge progress every day. We didn't get handled before we came to our foster home, so we were all scared of people.... I've been working hard to be less afraid and I'm doing really great! My foster mom can hug and kiss me and I love to give her kisses! I love treats and I LOVE to run and play. I enjoy toys and playing and running and climbing. I'm working on the doggie door but I do great with potty pads. I love to bark and vocalize like my other siblings-- we are a noisy and crazy bunch who tell it like it is! My foster family is working with me daily to continue to help me feel less afraid of people and I will need a gentle family who will understand that I might need time and patience-- probably considerate kids would be best. I'd love a doggie sibling to help me learn to be more outgoing. If you are looking for a talkative guy.... stop looking.... I'm right here.
