I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Update: 11/10/12: Huey has gotten more accustomed to living "the good life" with his foster family. Despite being a senior, he runs after the ball during games of fetch, and even has enough play in him that he will jump up in the air for the ball. When he first came to rescue, Huey was hesitant to come up the two steps from his foster family's carport into the kitchen. Now, he comes in without a problem. However, he has an endearing habit: before coming in, he does several quick turns--a couple of fast circles--before he comes in. We call him "Left Turn Huey" because of this little idiosyncracy. Huey is a sponge when it comes to attention. However, he's very patient and accepting. If we're busy doing something, Huey is quite content to lay on his rug. But, if you invite him over, he adores being petted. He gets along with his foster brother, and is a well-mannered boy.
Huey is a well-mannered senior. We don't know exactly how old he is, but we do know he has a lot of life left in him. Huey will gallop after the ball---he loves to play fetch but doesn't always bring the ball back to you---and loves to be petted. In fact, that is the main thing Huey wants out of life--to be loved. He gets along with other dogs, and although he isn't living with cats, he has been around them at events, and seems uninterested in those of the feline persuasion. In his foster home, Huey is learning to not be so hesitant. Someone must have been mean to him, because he can be quite shy when approaching you for attention. Coming into doorways is sometimes hard too. But with time--and love--he's getting better. Take a chance on Huey. He might be in his "golden" years, but he has a heart of gold...and he's looking for a forever home to call his own...
