Meet WDR's Grampa! This sweet guy is an ancient, deaf, low slung 70 pounder who’s stolen the hearts of everyone he’s met.  Like so many dogs who are ‘thrown away’ after a lifetime of loving service, his only flaw is old age and some of the ailments that accrue with years.  His bones are arthritic, especially in the back end, and he was diagnosed with leaky gut. The right meds and nutrition have already made a huge impact, and we think he’s got plenty of quality time left. He’s seeing a holistic vet for supplements and even better nutrition tweaks, and ideally his future family will be totally into canine nutrition as well. Grampa is available to be adopted by a big-hearted forever family, or placed as a Forever Foster Dog with Wagging Dog Rescue.

Gramps is, well, a lot like my Gramps (or your Gramps). He snores away most of the day but, unlike my Grampa, this one loooves his walks. If he feels they’re overdue, he will GALLOP to the front door to get your attention :) Just once around the block, 2-3 times a day, is all he asks for and then it’s back to snoring.  He also puts his Game Face on for company and seems to be especially drawn to men (and those who throw him cookies are the best!). Other favorite hobbies include chewing on antlers, sticking his nose out of the car window, and catching airborne treats faster than you’d believe possible for an old guy lol.

Even when he’s snoozing, our docile Grampa dog really appreciates having people around. He’s fine being home alone for a few hours while you’re at work, but he’d really rather be in whatever room you are, unobtrusively snuggled in a soft bed and offering unlimited moral support. He’d be soooo happy if he found folks who were home a lot, worked from home or were retired!

Gramps is great with dogs and cats and probably just about all other life forms. He’s super tolerant of his furry companions but also willing to say “Enough!”.  We’d like to see him in a calm home environment with older children if any.  Too many stairs may be difficult so a one-story or ground level accommodation would be best. We know he enjoys his foster home backyard and would like for him to have one in his future home too.  According to his Foster Parents, “He doesn’t mind being dressed up, or living with a bossy Chihuahua, or walking in the rain, or getting his regular shots of Adequan (once a month), or having his feet or ears cleaned – he’s really an easy dog to be around.” All he asks for is love.

Contact us today if you’re the big-hearted family Gramps has been waiting for or if you’d like to know more about being a Forever Foster Parent! ADOPTIONS@WAGGINGDOG.ORG So. California only please.

About Wagging Dog Rescue - Los Angeles Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Wagging Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization striving to help as many dogs as possible get through Southern California's shelters and find the perfect forever family. We are an all volunteer group of passionate animal advocates, owners and rescuers dedicated to improving animal welfare and restoring the unwanted family pet to his rightful place in a responsible home. All of our adoptable dogs are in a private foster home with a loving caregiver who guides them through their transition from a stressful past to a permanent and well-deserved future. We promote responsible pet ownership, firm leadership, spay and neuter... and most of all, ADOPTION.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process begins with an application (available for download here - http://waggingdog.org/resources/) followed by a phone interview and home visit. If other pets are in the home, we will manage dog introductions. Our adoption fees vary and will include spay/neuter, vaccinations, and microchip. In most cases our Dogs are also housebroken and crate trained with basic obedience skills. Prospective pet parents must be at least 21 years old. Adoption agreement will be required.
