Ever see a senior puppy before? Well he's one! At around 10 years old, Geoffrey the Puggle is the perfect combo of a graying muzzle and puppy eyes. This sweet guy made his way to City of Elderly Love after being found as a stray in Philadelphia and brought to the animal control shelter. We're pretty surprised no one came looking for this little gem.
Geoffrey has a sweet, goofy personality with a couple unique quirks (don't we all)! He loves to go for walks, play with food puzzles, and is always up for a car ride so he can stick his little nose out the window so he can take in all the passing smells. Like all Beagles/mixes, Geoffrey LOVES food, is vocal and can be a little mischievous. He may try to explore the trash can if given the opportunity. He may try to beg for some dinner, but his foster parents have been helping him learn some table manners and not bark so much. He'll likely need some additional support in his future home. Geoffrey is great on the leash, doesn't mind distractions like other people or dogs, and is a great dog if you're looking for a morning walking companion.
Geoffrey is still working on his housebreaking but waits by the door if he needs to go out but needs to go out every few hours (small dog - small bladder). His former owners likely never took the time to housebreak him and may have relied on pee pads instead. He'd likely benefit from crate training in his future home and would love a mid-day dog walker visit if you work long hours. Geoffrey is currently living with another small dog and we think he'd do just fine in a home with other friendly dogs. Since coming to the rescue, Geoffrey has had a couple bite incidents. In one event, he was being pulled away from a snack on the coffee table. During a trial adoption, he was pushed to go in a crate and redirected. It does appear he doesn't like to be pushed to do something he doesn't want to. Because of this, his future family should not include children and they should be prepared to help him overcome these behaviors.
Geoffrey is overall a healthy dude! He has been diagnosed with a collapsing trachea which isn't uncommon in small dogs who are not walked on harness and instead pulls hard on a regular flat collar. He takes a daily medication to help with the resulting cough. Geoffrey is otherwise healthy!
