Figo needs a home without cats, dogs or young children.

Leggy and lean, with his bright coppery eyes and black speckled chest, Figo turns heads wherever he goes.

Named for the famed soccer star, our Figo’s high energy level could easily match his, as could his passion for playing – with his own soccer ball as well as games of keep away and tug-o-war.

Not only does he greet everyone entering his foster home with equal enthusiasm, he also performs for treats, proudly obeying each “come”, “sit”, “stay”, “down” and “paw” command.

Fond of chewable items, he’s also fond of being brushed and groomed (his nails, however, require a vet’s assistance). He’s well behaved enough to freely roam the house, and loves sharing his foster mom’s bed at the end of a busy day.

He especially enjoys long, brisk walks, even lying down at the top of the stairs to wait while his harness and leash are secured before heading for the door. Still new to some of the challenges of the outside world, he’s still learning how best to meet them, and has been improving daily.

Now, what fabulous Figo needs most is a fur-ever home with a large, fenced yard, without other dogs, cats or small children, but with active and affectionate adopters committed to continuing his training and perfecting his socialization.
