Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:

There are two reasons why Canelo is the best. He's like a puppy, but without the puppy drama. No accidents, because this dude is potty trained! Leave him out of the kennel for a bit? He won't chew your shoes. Don't want to wake up super early to let him out? He'll sleep in till brunch. But as soon as you get the leash out and he knows it's adventure time, the puppy playful energy comes out! And it's adorable. He's got energy for all the adventuring you want to do. And once you get home, he'll plop right down on the couch next to you and netflix for hours. It's amazing.

Second reason? I call it OD'ing on love. Canelo loves LOVE. If you give him too much praise for the excellent 'sit', he'll die of happiness by falling onto his back, waiting there until you rub his belly. It'll melt your heart. He demands snuggle time by wriggling up next to you, or if he can, in your lap. It's a welcoming party every time yo come home, even if you've been gone for 5 minutes. He is the affectionate dog of your dreams!
