Pet Helpers: Meet Red (Waddles)!

BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. (WDTV) -- We are proud to introduce Red (also known as Waddles) to everyone!

He is a male short-haired Chow mix, a senior (over 8 years old), and currently weighs 47 pounds. He should gain another 5-8 pounds and is working happily on that.

Waddles is neutered, has been updated on vaccines and microchipped, has received dewormer and is on monthly flea treatment, and has just had a dental appointment to remove tartar.

He gets along wonderfully with the other foster dogs in his temporary home, but is a little antsy around the cats. Waddles is crate trained and doing very well on his housetraining if taken out at least every 6 hours. He is just a little timid at first in the outside world of humans, but warms up quickly with treats, patience and encouragement. He has not yet been tested with children, but is very affectionate with the adults he has met so far.

Waddles is fostered in Fairmont, WV, adoption fee is $75.00. He would love to have his own home and humans for the holidays! To request an adoption application, please email
