Meet Casper! Casper is an older gentleman who is looking for someone to enjoy slow days with. His favorite pastime is napping - he loves it so much and is such a deep sleeper, that he needs to be awakened gently so he doesn’t get startled. This sweet little guy is very patient and sometimes needs some extra attention. Foster mom says this attention can come from his person and does not need to come from a doggy roommate, though he gets along just fine with dogs his size. 

Casper is eager to please and loves to be picked up and carried. He doesn’t see or hear well and is unsteady on his feet, but accepts all assistance. He will take all the gentle hugs you have available. Casper cannot jump up on furniture, and he would love for you to help him up onto the couch so he can take his favorite spot next to you. Better yet, snuggles on your lap! 

This sweet boy has refined taste - he is quite selective about treats, and toys aren’t really his thing. He would rather not be in his kennel (and will tell you so himself!), but he walks nicely on a leash to go potty outside and get a little exercise. Casper will not tell you if he needs to go potty but does go when he’s taken outside, so a regular schedule will be important for him. Because he walks well on a leash, his forever home does not need to have a fenced yard.

Do you think you could be Casper's person to give him all the love he deserves? A quiet home with a person or people who are home most of the time would be ideal for Casper. Fill out an application today to adopt this sweetheart! 

Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a  particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.
