Wellington (Dog)

Adopted Apr 2023

Happy Saturday from me and the newest member of the Jovovich-Anderson clan, Wellington! We rescued this huge baby beastling from an animal hospital where he’d been abandoned dying of pneumonia because the owner couldn’t afford to pay the bills. Poor guy was just skin and bones. But as you can see, he’s super healthy and happy now lying on his mama’s lap and getting all the love and cuddles any dog could ask for! He’s settling in well, but we’re still potty training him so he’s got a doggie diaper on😂. Before people worry, I make sure he goes outside every time he drinks water, so he spends most of his time without them. But when he’s hanging on the couch with the family, we need to be cautious or I have A LOT of cleaning to do when he has an accident🤦🏻‍♀️ Anyway, hope you’re all doing great and sending lots of love your way!❤️❤️❤️
