Available Dogs - Dwight


Dwight is just a big love bug with a big golden heart. He is a senior, but you would never know it based on how active he is. His favorite toy is his AirDog dumbbell that he likes to fetch or catch in midair when playing with his foster mom. He loves being close to his foster and thinks nothing of sitting on her lap while she's watching tv. While he lived with another male dog for most of his life, he might do best in an only dog household. He sleeps through the night, is completely housebroken and has free reign of the house during the day. He is a good eater and like most dogs, loves treats! He is a loyal companion and just waiting for his forever home.
