Superstar who? BARU! Meet this playful dude from Costa Rica! Baru lost his tongue when he was a young pup, but with a little help is getting by just fine without it! He drinks from a water fountain at home and a water bottle when he’s on the go. At meal time, he needs someone to spoon his food into his mouth and then he takes care of the rest. In return, BARU will give you plenty of tounge-less kisses (really!) to let you know how appreciative he is! He’s curious and friendly with everyone he meets, including children and dogs, making friends quickly. He would do well as a second dog in the home. Being the eager to please dude that he is, BARU responds well to direction and is well-behaved. He’s a quick learner, currently working on the command sit and leash manners, and is food motivated in his training. He’s pretty adaptable and would do well in most environments, having done well on his own for up to 8 hours almost fully housebroken. This dude has experience living in a house with a yard though this is not required as long as he gets to go out and explore. Regulating his body temp on his own is a bit tough, so in hot weather he’ll need to limit his activity time outside and will be happy to play indoors! It's important his furever home has AC. This guy is super sweet and has so much love to give. We know you’ll love him just as much! Ready to meet superstar BARU? Yes, you! Apply to adopt BARU today!
