Furry Friends, Forever Homes

This week, we introduce you to a very sweet and very deserving 12-year-old Pit Bull Terrier who needs to find a new home.

Meet Grandpa Dan!

Grandpa Dan spent the first 10 years of his life locked in a cage. Finally, when he got out, he was taken away from the cruel people who kept him there, and stayed at the local veterinarian’s office for a year. Then, Fur-Ever Home Rescue got Grandpa Dan into a loving foster home.

In the year that Dan spent with his foster family, he slowly realized that life wasn’t all that bad. In fact, it was pretty darn good, with a loving home full of loving people who gave him an ample supply of belly rubs and snuggles.

Sadly, though, his foster family moved and they couldn’t take this sweet boy with them. So, now he’s looking for another, permanent foster home or, better yet, an adoptive family, who can continue to give him all of the love and stability he deserves.

It is important to note that Grandpa Dan has Irritable Bowel Syndrome which is kept under control with a special diet and a daily, low-dose steroid. Steroids are known to make dogs urinate more frequently, and Dan is also potentially having a disk issue in his back. As a result of both, he needs to go out every 4-6 hours as his ability to “hold it” has decreased. That said, a home with someone around to help care for this sweet fellow would probably be best, as well as a home with patient humans.

Despite his IBS, Grandpa Dan is a great dog. He is just like any old man in that he loves to nap on the sofa whenever he can. Along with napping, he also enjoys the company of other dogs and kids.

But what he’d really love is a stable and loving home to call his own as he rides into the sunset of his life. Please help sweet Dan find a family to care for him before his time in this world comes to an end; after all, that’s all a dog really wants. In return, Grandpa Dan will provide all the love, loyalty and laughs he can muster…and he can muster quite a lot!
