Senior lovers, meet Petey! Petey joins us from Louisiana. His owner passed away & Petey found himself homeless. We believe he's around 9.  Petey is a mellow guy who will make an easy addition to most homes. He’s still working on his fitness regimen, so short, slow strolls around the neighborhood or yard are just fine with him.  Petey is in a foster with two much bigger dogs and mostly just ignores them. He does not love having lots of new dogs approach him, so proper introductions are important. He’d be fine with another respectful dog in the house or as your one and only. We doubt he could muster the energy to chase a cat, so he might consider a feline friend.  Petey is fine being alone in the house, but will go in his crate if it’s cozy and you have a bribe for him. He sits by the door to let you know he needs to go outside, and learns the house rules quickly. He’s a smart little guy who likes gentle pets and to just be near you.  PD is neutered, heartworm, negative, unpreventatives, and up-to-date unvaccines. He is also microchipped and has recently had a dental.  Anyone looking for a low maintenance dog and who is willing to help him stick to his diet so he has many healthy years to come, should consider adopting this cute little fella… but be ready for some comical snoring at night!
