Story
Rio needs to be rehomed. We rescued him from the cold about two years ago. Unfortunately it’s not working out. Rio and our male Chihuahua are not bonding and we don’t have the time to give him the attention he deserves. Rio really needs a human with a lot of patience and time and a home preferably no other dogs. We think he is a Rat Terrier and is around five years old. He is very energetic and loves to chew on bones. His favorite snack is teething rings. He is pad trained and trained to go outside.

Story
FOSTERED IN: Chicago, IL 60625 ESTIMATED DOB: 2014 WEIGHT: 12lbs KIDS: Likely DOGS: Yes CATS: Possibly HISTORY: Egon was a stray who was brought to a suburban animal control facility. ABOUT: Egon is a gentle, sweet boy with bunny-soft fur. Egon had horribly painful teeth when he arrived at Lulu’s Locker and had to have 30 teeth removed. (He has 5 left) Egon has adjusted very well after the dental. His foster soaks his food to make it easier for him, but he can take and eat softer treats without a problem. He has blossomed into a great little dog who will thrive as a companion who will always be next to you on the couch or in bed. Egon loves to give kisses, as soon as you pick him up or lay down in bed he will shower you with kisses. Egon doesn’t demand to be picked up, but he isn’t bothered by it. Despite being incredibly affectionate Egon is never demanding of attention and doesn’t bother you if you are otherwise occupied. He is not bothered by any touch or any handling. Egon likes to sleep right next to his foster mom, and also enjoys burrowing into blankets - although he frequently only buries his head and leaves his entire back half sticking out. Egon has adjusted very well into his foster home. He will ask to go outside by pawing the door, but as a senior he does struggle to hold it for his foster’s entire work day. He has done very well going on, or mostly on, the pee pads placed by the door. Egon has never gotten into any mischief while his fosters are gone and just seems to settle in on the couch to wait until they return. Egon is active, but is not high energy. Egon wants to be right with his foster family at all times. If you get up to leave the room, he is eager to come along. He loves going for walks and can easily keep up, but he will quickly settle in for a nap as soon as you get home. He also loves to explore all the smells in the yard on nice days. Egon is hard-of-hearing but is not deaf. He can definitely hear his name when called, but you can also sneak up on him when he is napping because he can’t hear you. Egon no longer barks when left alone - but he did for a while when he was getting used to his foster home. He also will bark if he hears other dogs, the main door opening, or he can see people or dogs walking by on the sidewalk. He might do OK in some apartment settings with thicker walls and patient neighbors during the transition period. The shelter told us Egon was very friendly with other dogs, and he has adjusted very well into his foster home with a large and small breed male dog. In the beginning he was over-interested in humping the larger dog who was too polite to tell him no. We are not sure if this was stress from leaving the shelter, or if this is a behavior he will do when he is getting used to a new dog. It was managed with controlled and time limited interactions, and faded off over time and is an exceptionally rare occurrence now. He never bothered the smaller resident dog who was not shy about telling him to buzz off. He now enjoys an occasional senior-dog romp/rough house with the large breed dog. Egon has no problems with the other dogs and would do just fine in homes with another dog but we think he might love being an only child. Egon is not being fostered with children or cats. He did meet a cat at the vet and was curious, but not overly interested. He backed off when the cat tried to show him who was boss. Egon has been friendly with every single person he has met, so he would likely be fine in homes with children who are old enough to understand the needs of a senior dog. Egon is a very happy, easy, friendly dog with an “active senior” energy level. Arthritis was noted on his medical examinations, we have started him on a joint supplement to see how he does, but this may need to be upgraded to a pain medication from the vet. He learned to use the stairs to get into bed after watching the resident dogs use them just a time or two. More information and our adoption application can be found at www.luluslockerrescue.org.
