Meet Gramps Jon, an older gentleman finding himself in need of a loving home to live out his golden years. It takes time for a soul to become this sweet, and this mellow fellow is the dearest. Gramps is completely house trained and doesn’t need to be crated or isolated in any way. He just wants the pleasure of your company, and follows his foster mom from room to room throughout the day.
Gramps is a bit too dignified to play with dog toys or balls, but loves belly rubs. Who can resist a good belly rub? When he needs to go outside to take care of business, Gramps simply gives his foster mom a look with his head cocked in a cute, almost noble way. Gramps takes food very gently from his foster mom’s hand; truly a gentleman.
As a loyal companion, Gramps loves car rides. He’s rather fond of naps, too, either at home or on the road. Gramps is a quiet gent, except when new people come into the house. He gives an initial bark, but is friendly as soon as he’s properly introduced.
We have not observed Gramps with children, other dogs or cats, but he ignores lizards and squirrels. He would enjoy a calm and quiet home looking for a devoted friend. Gramps came to us with some skin issues, which should soon resolve with care and treatment in his foster home.
Some things just fill your heart without trying. Could Gramps be that special addition to your life?
