From the Foster:
Newman is a very loving dog. He loves a nice dog bed to lay on and lots of soft toys to chew up. Newman understands basic commands and tries to obey them. He's an older guy that has had a not-so-gentle life he did have hurt knees but he's doing well and at this point, doesn't require anything more than joint supplements but may need more in the future! He does have some arthritis too, so sitting and laying down are not always easy for him to do. I think he may do best with a house that has carpet verses hard wood or laminate. We have mostly hard wood and he sometimes has problems keeping his back legs underneath him.

Newman gets along great with our 2 resident dogs. He likes to go to the dog park to meet new friends although he has not played much while there or at the house. He is still working on getting his strength up from coming to us so underweight. He has met a few cats and seems interested but I do not know how he would be with one at home. He did do well with cats in the shelter before coming to us though.

This handsome man has had a past not so pleasant. He is a little shy when meeting someone new and will flinch sometimes when you reach to pet him. He is still a bit underweight (66 pounds) but is putting weight on nicely. Newman is completely house trained and kennel trained. If it is raining and/or muddy outside we have had to go outside with him to make sure he goes potty, he will just stand at the door if you just let him out and hope he will go. Being in the kennel is not his favorite thing and will whine at night if put in a kennel. Newman is a good boy left loose in the house at night and while at work.
All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.

Note - We change an animal's listing to say "PENDING ADOPTION" when they already had a meet and greet with a family who plans to adopt that animal. We put "NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS" on a listing when an animal has multiple applications in and the foster has asked to stop accepting any more while they review the applications they've already received.

Thanks for your interest in Secondhand Hounds!!
