Meet Granite

Hi! Thank you for being interested in my story! May I tell you about myself? I'm a blue miniature poodle and I am roughly 10 years old and currently weigh 10 pounds. I don’t really want to talk about my life before but just know that I was in a bad situation at a high-volume animal shelter and was facing a certain fatal end, especially given my age, vision and hearing limitations. When my rescuer came I knew I was going to be given a second chance to give all my love to a new family. And I am SO good at giving love!
There is nothing else I love more in this world than to be with you, sitting with you by your side. I even love it so much that I will follow you room to room! Because I have limited sight in both eyes (I can only see shadows now, so a well light room helps me get around better) I can’t always know when you stop walking or change directions and don’t always move in time and can get underfoot. I don’t want you to fall and also don’t want to get stepped on so please be careful! Also, it really helps me if you keep things picked up off the floor and leave furniture in the same place, so I can better get around with my limited sight. Remember, I just want to be with you! As a senior citizen, I do like to take a lot of naps and would really love it if you would put a bed by your chair for me, so I can still be near you while I sleep. I would really love to sleep with you in your bed at night, but I am also okay with sleeping in my crate with my bed. I have to be honest, sometimes I complain for a couple of minutes, because I so want to be near you, but I know it is for my own good, so that I don’t get lost in the house in the dark, and I settle right down.
Don’t think I just sit around and sleep all day though. No way!! I absolutely love to take walks when it is cool out! Sometimes we walk for almost an hour and I don’t even get tired! Even though I can’t see well, when we walk in areas without a lot of obstacles I can move on down that road pretty darn quickly!! I do need to be on a harness and leash to make sure I am safe, not only due to my limited sight but also because I can’t really hear anything either. I LOVE to walk because it gives me such good sensory input and exercise since most of the day is dark and silent for me.
I am currently living with several cats and several small dogs and we all get along quite well. To be honest, I don’t hang out with them at all because I just want to be with you. I am not around kids right now but would hope that if I am around them everyone understands that, because I can’t see or hear them, I cannot move out of their way and would likely be hurt if they stepped on me or handled me too roughly.
I'm housetrained, for the most part. If you are gone all day for many hours I may not be able to hold it in. I am so sorry! I don’t mean to do this to you but I just can’t hold it so long. My foster mama puts a belly band on me with a pad in it to soak up any accidents I may have when she goes to work and it works really well for both of us. I use that walk we take to do most of my daily “business” so it’s really important for me to get that for that reason too!
It took me a couple of weeks to become comfortable in my new surroundings when I first went to live with my foster mama. I might regress a little and have some separation anxiety at the beginning. I started to feel comfortable enough to start playing and show my real personality after several weeks of living there and developing trust. I am thinking this is what I will also need when I come home with you and I hope you are patient with me. I have a lot of love and fun still inside me to give to you, if you will protect me and let me come along on my own pace.
Is so hope that you are willing to give me a second chance at a good life, despite what life has handed me. If so, please send an email to pets2adopt@yahoo.com to see if I'll be at Petco Adoption Event on Sat. and we can have a great time meeting each other!

Adopter for this dog must reside in the immediate Houston/Galveston area and be at least 25 years old. A home visit may be required prior to this dog going to any home.

Adoption fee for this dog is $175.

Adoptions are held on Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Clear Lake Petco, 2410 Bay Area Boulevard. All dogs are microchipped, on heartworm protection, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and treated for fleas. Since all of our dogs are in foster homes, an individual dog may not be at our weekly Adoption Event due to conflict with a foster's schedule. If you are interested in meeting a particular dog, please send an email to pets2adopt@yahoo.com so that the Dog Coordinator can let you know if the dog will be at the Saturday Adoption Event at Petco. If you just want to meet some great dogs looking for their forever home, please come visit with us on Saturday!
