Basics: Hola! I’m Sebastian, the most endearing pup you’ll ever meet! I was scooped up off the streets of Mexico and made my way up to South Pacific County Humane Society in Washington state, where I quickly became a staff and volunteer favorite due to my sweet and sensitive nature.
I’ve had a few medical ups and downs in my young life, though I’m happy to report that things are definitely on the upswing now! At SPCHS, I was diagnosed and treated for a tick-borne disease called anaplasmosis. Even though the veterinarian has given me the all-clear with no concerns, I continue to test positive, and they believe this must be because I carry an antibody to the disease.
All of our animals are vaccinated, treated for parasites, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and cats are tested for feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and feline leukemia virus (FeLv). All animals receive any necessary veterinary care (dentals, etc.) until the time of adoption.
After joining Animal Aid’s foster program, they discovered that I had a cancerous tumor and made sure to get me treatment before making me available for adoption again. I received a few rounds of chemotherapy, and while I’m not a huge fan of the vet, they made my cancerous lesion disappear! I am due for a recheck in August to make sure everything’s still looking good. I also have some itchy skin allergies that are currently being treated with a prescription allergy pill and diet.
I know it seems like I have had a lot going on, but I am truly adored by every person I have ever met. I have a special way of looking into your eyes and capturing your heart. Plus, I make an excellent companion: I love going on adventures and living life to the fullest!
Likes: I love to go for walks and jogs, cuddle (once I have had time to get to know you), hang out with my family, destroy my stuffies, and get my zoomies out around my foster family’s yard. I have been to a few outdoor restaurant patios and behaved appropriately, so long as other dogs respected my personal space and didn’t come too close or bark at me.
Dislikes: I need some time to get to know you before I feel comfortable with you handling me, so please take it slow at first. Once you give me a treat, walk, or stuffie, I will open up to you very quickly! I am NOT a fan of most other dogs. Though I have made a few outside doggy friends, I would prefer to be the one-and-only animal in the home, as I can get protective of my people and things—I want all of your attention to myself, por favor! You may notice some scarring on my face: This is most likely from some scuffles during my time as a street dog and probably why I am not a fan of other dogs.
Looking for: An active, easy-going home that will devote all of their love to me and spoil me with all of my favorite toys and adventures! I am a sensitive guy who has had a rough start at life, but I am more than ready for someone to be as devoted to me as I will be to them. Let’s live life to the fullest together!
