ABOUT ME: I'm a sweet big boy weighing about 86 lbs! I came to SPCA of Texas under some sad circumstances, but the past is the past and I don't let it bring me down. I love people and soak up all the attention I can get.

Medical: I currently have a red irritated spot in my groin area. The medical team place and e-collar on me however, each morning when they come in, its off. Now they want me to go to foster to if I am removing it or if its falling off at night. I am currently on oral antibiotics and my foster must be comfortable with administering them to me.

SKILLS: I'm leash trained and have been told I have the best sit! I even know how to shake!

PERSONALITY: Sweet, but serious. I'm a leaner and I love to lean my whole body against you for love, but I also have a calm demeanor- I'm a pensive dude! Hope you like lapdogs, because I loooooove to cuddle.

DREAM HOME: I'd like a loving family who will help me lose some weight! Let's be fitness buddies together. I am deaf, so my family will need to use hand gestures instead of vocal cues to train me. I'm also looking for a home with a securely fenced yard.

DOGS: No other pups in the home for me, please.

KIDS: I'm looking for a 15+ household.

I'M AN ARTIST: I've painted a picture for my future adopter. Look at my third picture to see what I painted!

SPECIAL NOTE: I'm available for a test drive through a trial adoption! During the trial, I would be a foster and the SPCA would provide everything I need!
