A LAID-BACK GENTLEMAN: 13 years old / 21 lbs. and needs to lose some weight

Hi, my name is Murphy! Somehow, I ended up at animal control, so Mostly Mutts has stepped in to be sure I spend my golden years receiving the love and care that I deserve. I have one eye (and sight in it is limited due to age) and some hearing loss which is typical at my age as well.

• OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS: I met the other dogs in my foster home and do fine with them, though we don’t interact or play, so if you have a nice doggie who isn’t looking for a playmate, let’s meet / Cats unknown, but I likely would not be interested in them / I also haven’t met kids yet at Mostly Mutts, but older kids may be best in my new home. I am a senior guy, and younger children may expect me to be playful, and I am not.

• PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL: My foster describes me as a ‘sweet gentleman’ who is happiest just chilling with my people, so if you are looking for a TV or book reading buddy – sign me up! Long or short life ahead of me – I want to live large in comfort and love. Since I have sight loss please keep me safe from falling down the stairs and out in the yard etc. / My energy level is 1-3.

• SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY: I don’t know any doggie commands, but I don’t mind – I’m all good / I don’t use a crate in my foster home / I need frequent let outs to avoid potty accidents, and I need to go out right away upon waking from a nap. My foster uses a belly band with me, though it does not always stay on – losing weight should help with this. My foster has learned my potty habits (if I get up and immediately start walking around, its potty time), so accidents have decreased. I’ve also just started a medication to help with incontinence.

• LIKES/DISLIKES: I love the closeness of being with my people and enjoy hanging out or napping near my people on the couch. You’ll want to keep a pee pad on there, as I sometimes have accidents in my sleep. I also enjoy treats / I can’t think of any dislikes, but I would not be happy if I didn’t get the love and attention on which I thrive.

• MEDICAL: I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped and neutered. I am on special kidney food and taking medicine to help with my incontinence. I also take glucosamine and fish oil to help keep my joints as healthy as possible. I’ve just had a dental cleaning, so the remaining teeth I have are healthy again!

I am looking for a special family who will give me the love I deserve in my golden years. My adoption fee is $299.00, and I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.
