Special Needs: Valley is neutered, up to date on vaccines and heartworm negative. On 12/2/22 he had a dental with extractions. Valley is a senior dog. He has mature bilateral cataracts. He has bilateral femoral muscular atrophy. He is looking for a quiet retirement home.
What kind of home would be best for me: We are seeking a home with an experienced dog owner and someone who is home more than they're away. Valley would like his owners to be home but he understands sometimes everyone has to leave the house. He will accept this as long as you let him know you'll be back. Valley is versatle and can live with just about anyone. He just asks he be the most excitement in his home. He likes visits from family and friends but prefers the older human type who understand his eyesight is not that great and would hate to mistake a finger for a hot dog.
What is my personality like: Valley was abandoned at a grooming facility along with 2 other dogs. We don't know why his owners never came back, but suspect it may be because he is not house trained. Valley needs a home that will work with him on house manners. It is going to take consistency, routine, LOTS of outdoor breaks, and time.
Valley is a lover and enjoys his life. He is always in a happy mood and is happy to greet his people. He enjoys his time in the fun yard with his fur friends and sun bathing in the dog hammocks. Valley is a chill dude and doesn't ask for much in life but nice teeth to show off his happy face. He has love to give and body heat to warm up cold feet.
Valley is an older guy but don't let his age numbers fool you. He has a lot of life yet to live and will remind you of this everyday. Valley has a bit more spunk in his step than his fur siblings he came with. Valley likes to run around and investigate his surroundings. He is friendly to other dogs his size or bigger if they know how to give him space when he needs it. He doesn't like to play rough, or really play much at all.
Since being with us, Valley has learned to eat and sleep in his crate and keeps his area clean. A crate is not a requirement into his next home but he would ask for a quiet safe place for him to rest and retreat into when he desires. Valley is leash trained and will walk nicely and enjoys strolls in the neighborhood. He does like to explore but is also happiest when home. Valley is a polite boy but doesn't know much more than come here for a cookie. He is smart and eager to please so we do believe he would be easy to train. He might not be ready for the olympics in dog tricks, but he could do enough to make you happy and feel blessed to have this guy as yours.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Valley has yet to meet a stranger. His zest for life is infectious and you feel his desires to share his happiness. You'll want to hold him and keep him close to your heart. You'll want to feel the love he has to share and be happy with him in your arms.
Tips and Tidbits: Valley is estimated at 14 years old. We celebrate his birthday as 10/26/2008.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
