Grandpa is my name and LUXURY is NOW my GAME!!
Don't get me wrong, I have lived the hardest and most miserable life up until now... so NOW it is about LUXURY, FOOD, FUN and a FRIEND to live the rest of my life with!
I am not a young man but I have what a lot of the younger dogs do not.... LOYALTY, CALMNESS, a cold NOSE for a sweet pet on my head and MOST OF ALL, LOVE LOVE LOVE to GIVE!!
I have lived on the streets but I actually SAVED MYSELF 😊 A couple of experienced trappers were in my neighborhood trying to catch another dog that was injured and needed help... well, I kind of kept trying to get my OWN help!! YUP, I trapped myself 5 TIMES before they finally decided to help me TOO 😊Talk about SMART?? I wasn't going to let them LEAVE ME THERE.
Luckily once they took me in, my injured friend was saved too- so WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER, if you ask me!! Now I am in an amazing foster home, I am loved and fed and LOOK- I AM AT THE BEACH!!!
Who would ever think that a hardened and starving old dog would be living it up on the BEACH??? God did, and I am SO THANKFUL to be where I am today!
I sleep in the bed, I follow my "foster mom" around EVERYWHERE 😊 I love love LOVE KIDS and have the patience of a saint with my foster kids 😊 AND I love other dogs and am tolerant of kitties!
This is my life now, and I am praying you will see me and give me the home of my dreams, family and food and love and HOPE for the rest of my days!
Hurry up and adopt me, I have been fully vetted, had 9 teeth removed during my dental because my teeth just weren't good after years on the streets. I am neutered, and am heartworm positive but am in the middle of my treatment and will be ready to go home VERY VERY SOON!!
PLEASE ADOPT....DON'T SHOP!!! MY FRIENDS AND MY LIFE DEPEND ON IT!!!

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.

     

    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.

  • Puppies turn into dogs...
