About Me


Mateo was adopted August of 2020.  We have contacted you if you were selected.

Are you experiencing quarantine fatigue? Continued isolation can be tough even on a classic introvert. Perhaps you are feeling anxious or irritable. Maybe you have racing thoughts and are feeling unmotivated to exercise or stay on any regular routine.

Mateo to the rescue! Mateo is everything you want in a best friend. This doggy version of a goofy teddy bear loves to snuggle, bounce joyfully around the neighborhood, or join you on that comfy sofa for those late nights of scrumptious snacks and Netflix. He would love to help you release some of those mood enhancing endorphins, on a mid day walk. And his silly, joyful grin will certainly motivate you to jump out of bed each morning and start your day. Everyone needs a Mateo in their life to lift their spirits and chase those worries away.
