Meet Russell! Did I mention he is bilingual?


Meet Russell!

Russell is an adorable 10-month-old who must have lived with a Spanish speaking family at one time because he is most responsive to “sit” and “stay” in Spanish. He’s working on his English too and we anticipate that he’ll be bilingual in no time! In addition to being smart when it comes to language comprehension, Russell is also seemingly housebroken. But don’t worry, just because he’s smart doesn’t mean that Russell isn’t also a social butterfly; while on walks with his foster mom this little fellow stops to greet everyone that passes by.

Russell is currently living with another dog in his foster home and does well with other dogs he meets on walks. He isn’t super into playing with other dogs but is perfectly happy to greet them and could certainly live with another dog that just wanted to cohabitate instead of romping around all the time. It may be hard to tell from his photos, but Russell is about 12 lbs. so he is a great size for most any living situation.

As with all One Tail at a Time dogs, Russll has been neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. His adoption fee of $200 helps offset our medical costs.
