Facts about Michael

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier/Basset Hound Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Michael was found in a shopping center, neglected, exhausted and injured. He was turned in to Contra Costa Animal Services where he remained unclaimed and unwanted until his time was up. We're not sure who is happier that he's with us now - him or us!
He is a very sweet, quiet and super affectionate dog, his tail hasn't stopped wagging and he's so grateful for love and attention. He is kind toward other dogs, just gets annoyed by very energetic tiny ones. Michael is too interested in cats so will need a home without any.
He's 70 lbs (needs to be much less) and we think he's ~7 years old.
Michael came to us extremely obese, a result of an untreated thyroid issue. He'll likely need to continue on thyroid medication for life (inexpensive). Our big ol' baby is feeling so much better as he loses some of this excess weight. He loves to go on short walks and waddles faster each day!
To know Michael is to love Michael.

About Tails of Gray

About Our Rescue Group...

Tails of Gray is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit rescue organization that offers a safe and loving sanctuary for senior dogs regardless of breed, health or ease of placement. Our goal is to prevent needless euthanasia through the offering of shelter, adoption, foster, hospice and education.
All Tails of Gray senior dogs are spayed and neutered, microchipped and receive appropriate veterinary care and treatment.
Tails of Gray welcomes the unwanted and heals the sick. Those precious senior dogs who cannot be healed will spend their final days in a comfortable environment where they experience unconditional love, some for the first time.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt a dog from Tails of Gray, you must:

1. Complete an online application for adoption.
2. Meet your prospective pet. If your application to adopt is approved, our adoption coordinators will schedule a meet and greet with you and the senior dog you are applying to adopt.
3. Complete a home visit. If you (and your family) and the dog are a good match for each other, a home visit is then scheduled and completed.
4. Finalize the adoption. After a home visit is complete, the adoption can be finalized and a new happy tail can be told!

The adoption fee is $200
