Adopt Artie a Black Spaniel (Unknown Type) / Mixed dog in Wakefield
Age: 8-ten years (as of June 2019) Weight: 30lbs This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heart worm preventative and is micro chipped. Artie absolutely LOVES belly rubs! He also loves getting petted and being with his people, but he's not clingy - he's perfectly content to sit by you while you read, work or watch television. He gets along fine with other dogs and keeps his distance when it comes to cats since he once got smacked on the nose by one. He holds no animosity however and just grants them all the space they want. He loves hanging out with his foster siblings on good big dog beds or out in the yard soaking up some sun. He was a stray so we can only guess at his former life. He's working on his house training, doesn't care for the crate (he prefers to be left loose in the house and is non-destructive), and walks well on leash. Daily leash walks will work just fine for exercise, business and fun if a fenced backyard isn't available. He might enjoy going to obedience classes with his new human(s) just for the social aspect of it. This gentle old soul would love to cuddle up with you on the couch or lounge on a big dog bed - he's an easy keeper! He would most definitely enjoy the company of another canine in the home. If you're looking to skip all the "mess and chew" of a puppy, then Artie's your perfect match! Fill out an application today and his people will get right back to you! Medical Note: Artie has been diagnosed with a Grade three heart murmur, but exhibits no symptoms and came through his recent dental just fine. He is currently on Benazapril for his heart murmur and will likely need to stay on that forever. He takes five mg 1x day wrapped in a treat with no issues. This medication is inexpensive ($10-20/month). No further diagnostics have been done.
