When animal control officers found Nacho, he was chained to a fence and covered in wounds after being badly mauled. But none of that brought this incredibly loving pup down, so we’re focused on Nacho’s future: helping him find the family he deserves!


Sweet Nacho – who was rescued by Marley’s Mutts Dog Rescue – wants nothing more than affection from humans, but he has no separation anxiety when he’s not around his favorite people. He’s easygoing and eager to please. Check out how mellow he is on a walk – even a kid could walk this big guy!

But that doesn’t mean he’s a total couch potato. At three years old, Nacho would love to join you on bike rides and play outside, snow or shine. He also loves to travel and is well-suited for long distance trips, which could even include being a truck driver’s copilot.

Nacho’s such a happy guy, even the cone of shame can’t dull his smile.

With model-good looks to go along with his easygoing personality, what’s not to love about Nacho?

If that doesn’t melt your heart, then watch this video starting at 3:00 to truly fall head over heels for this big hunk of love.


Nacho’s only requirement, besides love, is that he be the only dog at home. We don’t think that’s too much trouble for a dog who’s been through so much! We know the right family for this gentle guy is out there.

If you’re interested in becoming Nacho’s big cheese, visit to apply to adopt him. If you can’t adopt him, please spread the word! And of course – as always – consider contributing to Marley’s Mutts if you’re able.
