Story
My grandma and this gorgeous boy were a refined pair of active seniors, but she doesn’t have the energy to care for him any longer after falling sick. He doesn’t let his age get him down and is still strong, energetic, and playful as ever, and deserves a home with the energy to cater to that. Walden’s favorite activity in the world is running, and would love nothing more than a jogging partner. While he is housebroken, he needs quick and easy access to outside, as he can’t wait long to go to the bathroom due to his age. He may be hard of hearing as well, as he’s the only dog I’ve seen not care about a vacuum. Walden gathers compliments anywhere he goes, and has the charisma and kindness to match. He’s never bitten, loves children, gets along great with dogs, loves car rides, and responds very positively to petting. He doesn’t enjoy being groomed however, and while he isn’t aggressive towards cats, he seems to think of them as toys. I hope you’ll give this lovely boy a lovely home!
