Hey there! I'm Mario Andretti but my foster mom just calls me  Mario. Are you looking for a running partner who LOVES to play?! Then look no further! I love balls and also enjoy training sessions because I get so many yummy treats! Sometimes when I am really excited, I like to jump, but I'm working on keeping 4 feet on the floor. I'm a little nervous when I meet new people, but once I get to know you then I promise to be your best friend! I think a home without small children would be best for me.


I love to cuddle with my foster mom and sleep in bed with her all night long. Let me be honest, I don't love my crate and I like to sing in there if I know you are home. But, my foster mom says I need to be crated sometimes so I have been working really hard on being a good boy and will go in now when she asks me to. (I still like to sing though, hehe)


I currently have a doggie foster brother who I love very much and we play, play and play some more. My older foster doggie sister gets crabby sometimes, so I try to not play with her too much. I've also been learning that cats really aren't too bad, and I think they would make a fine roommate for me.


What do you say?! You ready to play a game of fetch?! Come meet me today!
