Santiago's Needs: Hi! My name is Santiago. I am an 8-year-old, 15-pound, male Terrier mix. I came to SBRET when my owner was no longer able to take care of me. My foster mom says I am so sweet, loving, quiet, and I have the most beautiful BLUE eyes! Yes, you read that right! My eyes are blue! I am a very healthy dog too! I had a couple of growths removed at the vet, but the vet said they were no big deal and just removed them so they didn’t bother me. I am also very good at going to the bathroom outside.

I sound perfect, right? Well I do have one little weird thing I do. I will happily walk on a leash, but I cough the entire time even on a harness. I am being checked next week for collapsing trachea which is pretty common in small dogs. It does not seem to bother me at other times. We will update my writeup once we have an answer. So right now even though I enjoy going for walks, it would probably be best if I have a secure fenced yard for outside potty time. I will stay in a crate when you leave the house and I will sleep on a pillow beside your bed all night! I might like to sleep in the bed with you as well.

I like all the dogs in my foster home, but another dog wouldn’t be necessary for my forever home. I am also a quiet little guy. No one knows my history with children, so I am not sure how I would do with them, but I am so laid back I would probably be fine with children over 12.

Have you fallen in love with my blue eyes and sweet temperament yet? I hope so because I am ready for my forever home! I am up to date on my shots, microchipped, neutered, and am current on my heartworm and flea/tick prevention! My adoption fee is $175.
