Meet Gary

If you want the easiest dog on the planet, Gary is your man. Gary isn’t fresh out of fucks. Gary never had any fucks to give in the first place. Gary has never given one single fuck. Gary was born with a fuck inventory of precisely zero.

He is so low maintenance and doesn’t take the little things for granted. Give him a comfy bed/blanket, regular meals, trees to poop on and maybe a few bones/toys to destroy and he is happy as a clam. Bonus points for a head scratch every now and then. He has a sneeze that makes him sound like a cartoon character. He never barks, unless you try to give him eye drops one too many times. He may or may not be able to hear, so you might have to physically drag a blanket he’s laying on for a couple feet before he wakes up.

He walks in slow motion until he decides to turn the turbo jets on for a few feet before it’s back to moving at a glacial pace. He doesn’t require much exercise. A few trips around the block per day will suffice. Sometimes, he just wants to go out and do his business and then go right back inside, especially first thing in the morning when he is PUMPED to eat breakfast. Gary lives in busy Wicker Park and does just fine in that environment.

Gary likes to poop ON trees. Not near them, on them. He is very independent and will often resort to his crate for a deep sleep, even if the rest of the family is in another room. He likes to say hi to other dogs, but gets a little too excited and has been known to attempt to hump them like the creepy old man that he is, so he’ll need to work on finding some chill.

Gary could thrive in any home because he doesn’t give a shit about anything. That said, a home with older kids who understand that he can’t see or hear super well, which means he can startle easy at times, would be best. While he might take a minute to fully trust you/give a shit about you, there’s nothing better than when he sits by you and just stares at you with his crusty eyes while wagging his tail or when he chooses your foot to lay on when there are so many other perfectly comfortable options available.

Speaking of which, he requires eye medication, but really doesn’t like when it’s applied and will let you know, so an adopter who is comfortable with that would be a plus.
