About Domino

Domino is a very smart boy! He is food motivated and learns quickly. He takes time to warm up to new people and can be skittish.

He would do well living in a quiet home in a quiet area. Walking on busy streets with a lot of traffic and activity is overwhelming for him. When he’s on a quiet street he is great at focusing on you and can easily be called to your side and will sit.

Domino has a bite history and must be adopted into an adult only (18+) home. He needs experienced owners that will continue his training and also give him the space he needs. If you are looking for a dog to snuggle on the couch or take to social gatherings, Domino is not the dog for you. He is good with other dogs and loves to run around and play with them.

He is high energy and needs activities to both mentally and physically exercise. He may be a good candidate for agility, but he would need a lot of training to get to that point.

Since Domino is nervous and unsure he needs a confident handler that will teach him to have confidence as well. He came from Mexico so this is a different environment for him and he needs a patient owner who will take the time to bond with and train him to be the best boy he can be!

Why We Love Fostering

  • It has been so lovely to have an animal with us again. We have noticed a boost to their mood. It is great to be able to open our door to an animal in need, it is very rewarding watching the kitty make progress with us and coming out of their shells. Pets Alive have been very helpful with any issues, and we never feel like we are alone if we need help.
