(Update 2014-01-28, 5:30 p.m.: Reynaldo had some soft poops this morning so TAS is holding onto him for another day to make sure he's okay. Hopefully, he'll be up for adoption tomorrow.)
I've barely knelt down to give some loving to this 'lil guy and he's already half-way up my body and in my arms. Meet this charming pile of traveling wiggles, Reynaldo!
We meet, face to face. I start blowing kisses, he starts eating them. I'm careful not to look him directly in the eyes, for fear of puppy hypnosis (this IS a thing). Worst (but possible) case scenario:
Puppy: "Gee, I fink I need yo help. I may be wanted fo murder. Can you take da wrap fo me? It's onwee 25-to-wife?"
Me: "Sure bud, anything for you!"
If you're not in a position to have a puppy, I suggest you avoid his superpowers. It took every ounce of my self-discipline to not dognap this handsome man. After exhausting my supply of will power, I go home and drown my puppy-less sorrows in a pizza. What a heartbreaker!
The best way to check on the adoption status of this dog (and other dogs and cats and other small domestic animals) is to visit Toronto Animal Services adoption website or call 416 338 6668 for the Toronto Animal Services South shelter. If the dog is no longer on the TAS adoption website, it's probably because it's been adopted already.
