This happy young adult came to APA after being found wandering around as a stray. How did he wind up loose? We have no idea, and neither does Euler because he is blind! But Euler doesn't let a lack of eyesight keep him from being a friendly pooch who could make a great family pet.
What kind of equation will work for Euler? He is generally calm but also quite curious. He loves to explore his surroundings, whether he's indoors or out. He enjoys going for walks, as long as he had a good leader! His favorite functions are chewing on a bone and playing with big stuffy toys - those can occupy him for hours.
Euler is currently spending time in an APA foster home, where he has been absolutely converging with the creature comforts that he'd been missing out on. He's been very good in the home, whether alone or with people. He's not been destructive and he seems to be fully house trained.
Euler doesn't engage with other dogs too much, perhaps because of his sight limitations. He might be able to share a home with a laid-back housemate, but he definitely wouldn't mind being the only dog in the home. One constant is his exponential love of people. He seems to get along with everyone, especially women and kids. He's shy around men at first, but usually warms up with time. He loves to be around people he trusts.
Given his calm temperament, Euler would fit best into a low-key home. He likes a bit of exercise, but doesn't have excess energy that needs to get burned off every day. Once he learns his new environment, his blindness will only be a differentiating feature, not an obstacle. He'll just be relieved to be an integral part of his own family!
Don't forget that APA's behavioral team will be available to help with any questions. Plus, remember that when you adopt you'll also let us free up space so that another dog can join us at APA!
