Meet Balthazar!  This darling boy was dumped by a "backyard breeder" that no longer wanted him.  Poor Balthazar has a previous leg injury that makes him limp sometimes.  He can put full weight on it and it's not painful.  The vet says it's okay and does not need surgery, but once in a while he stands around with it off the ground.  Initially, Balthazar was quite shy and hid under the bed.  He warmed up to his foster mom very quickly and is now a little lap dog.  He also LOVES playing with his foster brother!  Balthazar is a very sweet boy looking for someone that will love him with all their heart forever!  If only everything in life could be that easy...! 

If you are interested in adopting Balthazar, please complete an application.  If you want to enjoy the companionship of a dog or cat but not yet ready for the long-term commitment of adopting, perhaps fostering is more your speed. Please read our foster FAQ if you are interested in being a foster parent or contact foster@puppylove-lovecats.org.


All of our Captivating Canines are spayed/neutered, microchipped, heartworm tested, and up-to-date on vaccines per their age.
