Adopt Mario a Brown/Chocolate Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) / Mixed dog in
April 2021: After a few months in the shelter, Mario has accepted his new life. He is outgoing and social and GOOFY! We love this silly guy and we know you will too!February 2021: Mario stayed with his owner for a few months until space opened at VPRAC, but now Mario is a full time VPRAC resident. He was a little timid of the camera but snuck in a few smiles. He is young and carefree and ready to play the day away. He has lived his life chained up in the back yard, so social skills and obedience training will be needed. But Mario is smart, eager to please, and treat driven so training should be a breeze!When Mario first arrived at the shelter, he was completely terrified. He did not want to even get out of the truck. But our volunteer gave him some much-needed attention to show him that Shelter day is a fun day! After a few minutes of reassurance, he started to warm up and show off that gorgeous smile. He tested well with other dogs and ran away from the cats when they hissed at him. Mario knows at least the sit command, possibly more. Mario is a great dude who will make a great addition to any home once he has a little time to adjust. Adopt this handsome fellow today!Mario is currently a resident at Vermilion Parish Animal Control. He will be vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped upon placement in an adoptive or foster home.
