Grampaw is an adorable, sweet, kind quiet and polite boy!!! He was pulled from a local FLORIDA shelter.    He is house trained, I havent heard a peep out of him.. Good with people and other dogs. Walks on leash. He is chipped has had all vaccines and rabies. 

  As a senior, he has some medical issues. He has muscle wasting in his rear usually due to inactivity or lack of exercise, he is heartworm positive. He is NOT neutered, he has cataracts, poor dentition , and could use some good groceries. We are looking into letting him heal, getting his immune system up to snuff, good food, exercise and the comforts of a loveing home. He has been started on heartworm protocol just in case we can treat down the road. Or even go slow kill. 

He came in with 3 other dogs, and he has gotten along fine with all my guys including a chi. No waves, they act like he isnt even there. 

Grampaw has been with us since November.. During this time he has gained 15 pounds and is now a trim 55 pound boy!! He trots and gets plenty of exercise.. His energy level is low, he walks great on lead, totally crate trained and housebroken.. He will play for a few minutes with other dogs, and is polite and friendly to all. We are NOT going to neuter him due to his heartworm status, and we are NOT going to treat him with fast kill. That means monthly heart guard and hopefull we can weaken and eradicate his load. His blood work was ALL good!!! 

 . We are actively seeking a foster or adopter for him that can dote on him, give him a secure quiet home with a yard. He loves to be outside, and probably spent most of his life out there. If you are able to give this sweet ole man a home full of love Please put an application in.  He has requried only joint supplements from us, and is currently in great health!!  Currently fostered in Bradenton.
