Meet Graham

Good with dogs: yes

Good with cats: no

Good with kids: not likely due to his age, he has not been around children while in foster care.

Requires Fence: yes requires a physical fence

This darling boy is such a sweet and fun companion, always eager for any activity. He loves to "hunt" rabbits and squirrels on a long lead. Because he is prey driven (hence not a match for a home with cats), I do not take him off lead in the woods and fields. At home he patrols the yard for critters, lies in the sun and keeps an eye on the bird feeders, snuggles with me, lays on my foot or in front of the refrigerator - an ever-hopeful foodie. Graham has a delightful "roo" which he graces us with occasionally. His tail goes nonstop. He is the cheeriest little man!

Graham needs a very special home:
1- no more than one step (going down steps would hurt his elbows)
2 - an adopter able to lift him in and out of the car. Like going down steps, it would be too painful for his elbows to step down on them. His ideal weight should be about 40 pounds.
3 - fenced yard (because he won't poop when on leash). I have a doggy door so he takes care of business himself.
4 - an adopter willing to take him on short interesting walks (under one half mile b/c longer makes his left leg quiver), preferably where there are novel smells. Walking on ground rather than pavement is easier on his joints. According to the shelter, Graham spent 8 years tied to a tree. He is entitled to live out his days in an environment rich in scents, gentle experiences and love.
5 - someone committed to continuing Graham's pain management program. He takes several supplements that are essential to supporting bone and tissue. He also receives a NSAID, gabapentin, weekly laser treatments and monthly Adequan injections (which I give to keep cost down). Anyone applying as Graham's forever home needs to know that this regimen costs about $260/month and they need to commit to paying this for the next several years.
