Luka is a 9-year-old, 57-pound Terrier mix who is fit as a fiddle from his velvety black ears to the little white tip of his tail. He's a lovable, affectionate and gentle guy who excitedly 'talks' when it's time to go for a walk. He gets a bit excited for his daily walk but he's being trained to walk without pulling and not to overreact to passing pooches. For an older guy, he's energetic, easy going and flexible and could be a family dog or part of a bigger pack. He could also be a hiking buddy or just a pal around town. Luka is house-trained and he knows basic commands. You can even use hand signals (sit, stay, down, come) to get him to behave. He knows how to shake hands, too! Luka is a happy boy who loves to hang out with the family at the end of the day. He loves belly rubs, head scratches and lots of 'atta boys.' Luka adores other dogs and would love to have one or two in his future family. Luka has met a kitty and seemed to do fine, so it's possible he'd do well with a cat. Luka is very healthy for his age and takes 1/2 of a very inexpensive pill daily for his thyroid. Luka has been a loved dog his whole life. His original guardian passed away, and he was rehomed with another person who loves him dearly. Sadly, she is now ill and cannot continue to care for him. We hope to find him a third and final loving home to live out his golden years.
