“He’s so happy,” Lacey said. “It’s unbelievable that a dog who was basically tortured (and we don’t even know for how long) acts like he grew up in a cozy little house where people were surrounding him with love. But we know that wasn’t the case for him. He just bounced back.”
“Totopo is just about the sweetest dog ever,” Lacey added. “He walks up on the leash really well. He loves people. He wants to hug all the time. He’s great with other dogs.”
Lots of people have already expressed interest in Totopo, and Lacey expects to make an adoption announcement very soon.
“I think that if anybody is looking to change a dog’s life … and to help facilitate that final chapter where the dog is loved and in a warm place and doesn’t ever have to be hurt again, this story is definitely one of those,” Lacey said. “This could be their dog to make that happen.”
