Hi I’m Burton. I’ve been with my foster family for about two months now. I’m 10 years old, fawn with a perfect black mask (no grey hair), and a 56 pounds fellow that still needs to add 5 pounds or so. I’ve previously lived, with only one owner but due to some personal life changing issues she had to let me go and find a new forever home.
I’m a very docile, calm fellow who gets along with other dogs and people. I’m never mean or angry with anyone. I just want to nuzzle up to you and get petted and I’m always happy to see new people. My foster dad is starting to train me in some commands but since I didn’t start until I was 10 years old it is taking a little while. I now have sit and stay very well but still working on the down command.
I can stay in a crate with no issues, but since I wasn’t neutered until I was 10 years old, and probably never trained earlier, I am having some difficulty with my housetraining. I’m good while people are home and you let me out immediately after eating but, if I’m left out of my crate when the family is gone, I still have accidents. But I’m working on it.
I haven’t been on any walks yet since I am undergoing Heartworm Treatment and the vet is taking a slow extended approach due to my age. I am scheduled for my next round of treatment soon and will need another 30 days afterwards before I will be ready to go visit people. The vet also removed a lump from my neck and says I need to take Benedryl every day from now on.
Once I recover from the Heartworm Treatment I’ll be ready to start seeing new families and to meet my new forever family. If you’re looking for a great dog I may be your guy. Give my people a call and we’ll do a Meet and Greet. See you soon!
